Mine are 192kbps/44.1 mp3 unless someone insists that they be 128kbps - that seems to have been the standard for a while, but since connection speeds are faster now and drive space is plentiful, higher bit rates shouldn't be a problem.

I wish so many folks didn't have Mac-a-phobia and would let me send AAC instead.

AAC+ may be the coming broadcast standard.

It's been a while since I made broadcast copies for radio, but I believe here in Holland the delivery requirements are still a DAT or a CD.

Can anyone confirm this? I find this very interesting.

emailing a 320MP3 @ 44.1khz to the client usually works just fine

Post MP3

It used to be that DG systems, a trafficker, wanted 192kbps MP3s. I think they will take something of a higher fidelity now.

320 at 48 mp3 (email) OR 48/16 on CD OR a DAT. I was talking to an engineer at a national radio station here, he said it really doesnt matter coz wen they get the spots, they usually process them some more and convert them to 192 mp3's before going on air. I dunno wut they do in the US, but this station is american/british run. So i guess the higher quality u send it the better it will sound after all that processing and conversion.

I send at 320kbps 44.1k. I've sent less to clients who are still on dial up. I even have clients who don't have email, (freaking dentist ) and want me to call em and make em listen over the phone !

Hallo Geert,

Well I can confirm this - but that's based on my own experience.
People still do want it on cd. When it's an urgent order, I send it via e-mail in 320kbps 44.100 kHz mp3, but I mostly always get the request to send a cd later on with a wavefile.
However, what Gibby said, most stations convert it to another file, (like mp2 or mp3) also here in Holland. I think they just want the source to be as good as possible.

But ok, I don't have experience from many years and many stations yet , so there might be something to add to this story.

Greetz,

Milan

Mp3 / 256kbps / 44.1kHz
Unless they request it otherwise.
Usually via email unless there are several or larger files (radio shows) then via DigiDelivery or FTP.
