File Formats to Use
Keep in mind that, whichever formats you use, if you expect to have evidence of copyright for your ENTIRE song, you need to send your ENTIRE song meaning, words AND music (if your song includes both). If you only send lyrics, the music cannot be covered, and vice versa! |
So if your song has both words and music, the easiest way to send both is by way of an audio file, CD or sheet music (and if your audio file or CD has both words and music in it, you do NOT need to send lyrics separately).
The best audio files to use are either .mp3, .wma or .m4a files.
For lyrics only and other text, use any txt format (.doc, .txt, .rtf, .docx, .wps, etc.)
If you scan your material, any graphics format is ok (.jpg, .gif, .tif, .pdf, etc.)
Do NOT use .cda, .wav*, .aif*, video (.mov, .wmv), .wpl or .itl files
→ *convert .wav or .aif files to .mp3 or .wma using our free converters
