iCSL offers “Mastered for iTunes” MFiT as per Apple official providers list.

To meet the MFiT technical requirements, you need submit your masters in a 24-bit uncompressed audio format, such as 24-bit 96kHz sample rate *.wav format. You can submit up to 192kHz. Part of Apple's guideline is to limit or completely prevent clipping or inter-sample peaks.

Whether you’re a major label or a small indie, you provide the most important ingredient for iTunes—the music itself. It’s our job to faithfully and accurately deliver your songs and albums to fans around the world exactly as you intend them to be heard. We’ve designed our tools to facilitate the best possible results, ones that live up to your highest standards for music available on the iTunes Store. To achieve this transparency, you need tools and technologies from us to ensure delivery of the highest quality master recordings possible into our ecosystem. With over 315 million iOS devices capable of playing your music, there's never been a better time than now for us to communicate, codify, and distribute updated information to you about the best tools and processes used to produce the millions of AAC files delivered daily to our mutual customers in over 50 countries around the world.

Innovation and Excellence in Sound

Apple celebrates a rich history and tradition of innovation and excellence in sound for computing as well as content creation. The original Mac was engineered fully capable of supporting audio without additional hardware or software, making it one of the first personal computers ever to ship with sound. In 2002, even before the launch of the iTunes Store, Apple received a GRAMMY Award® for technical excellence in music, the first and only such award ever given to a personal computing company. When iTunes launched, the, decision was made to standardize on AAC instead of the more popular MP3 format simply because AAC clearly provides superior audio quality compared to other codecs at similar bit rates. In working with Dolby and Fraunhofer, there have since been further improvements to AAC to get it to the level of excellence experienced on iTunes today. If you follow the guidelines outlined in this document and audition sample AAC encodes on Apple devices, you can achieve dynamic range that’s superior to red book audio and a final product that’s virtually indistinguishable from the original recording.

Mastering for Digital Delivery

Digital distribution is no longer an afterthought. It is today's dominant medium for consuming music and as such needs to be treated with utmost care and attention. For decades, the standard for consumer digital audio has been the compact disc, and most mastering has been done with CDs in mind.

In recent years the quality of digital music delivery has vastly increased, as has the number of digital music sales, with iTunes being a key driver of those sales. With more than 16 billion downloads encoded as AAC to date worldwide, AAC is the new standard for digital music. It only makes sense to create masters specifically for this format.

What is AAC and iTunes Plus?

AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) is a format for compressing and encoding digital audio. AAC achieves the portability and convenience of compressed and encoded digital audio while retaining audio quality that’s indistinguishable from larger digital files, such as audio from CDs.

The iTunes catalog was initially offered in 2003 as 128 kbps AAC files, many of which were encoded from the original CD masters. They sounded great—in fact, these downloads led the industry in sound quality. More than 100 million songs were sold in this format in a little over a year, changing the landscape of legal digital music forever.

But innovation didn’t stop there. Recently, using the most advanced AAC encoder, the iTunes catalog was upgraded to iTunes Plus: a variable bit rate (VBR) 256 kbps AAC encoding format. iTunes AAC encoders are now able to transparently encode high definition audio, creating files that retain the small footprint, portability, and ease of use iTunes is known for. And they sound amazing.



The International Standard Recording Code
ISRC enables recordings to be uniquely and permanently identified. ISRC helps to avoid ambiguity and simplifies the management of rights when recordings are used across different formats, distribution channels or products. The ISRC for a recording remains a fixed point of reference when the recording is used across different services, across borders, or under different licensing deals.

iCSL has been allocated with ISRC Registrant Codes, these Registrant Code is allocated uniquely for use by iCSL, enabling us to create ISRCs that uniquely identify recordings for which iCSL owns the sound recording copyright.
