What is the difference between the available file types?

Topspin Platform Artist Support -

Artists offer digital audio in a variety of formats, which include some or all of the following:

Our MP3s are the highest bitrate possible (320kbps) and will play on any MP3 player. Read more about MP3 here.

Apple Lossless
Apple Lossless files are as good or better than CD quality. These files may be played in iTunes, or other Apple devices. Read more about Apple Lossless here.

FLAC files are lossless and can be as good or better than CD quality but will not play in iTunes or Windows Media Player. Read more about FLAC here.
Note: FLAC files cannot carry meta data, so you won't receive album art, track names, etc.

Source audio is the format the artist uploaded directly onto our platform. This format is lossless and can be Apple Lossless, WAV, AIFF or FLAC. Rest assured, the audio you download is exactly as was uploaded by the artist.
