AIFF, BWF, or WAV files:
I can deal with any of the usual formats (44.1k up to 96k, 16 or 24 bit).
If you mixed back into your workstation, just give me the stereo files,
they don't need to be 44.1k or 16 bit (they'll end up that way on the CD)
in fact it'll be best not to change them from the original format
NB there are a few workstations that can save proprietory 32bit files, I can't read them.
Similarly, don't send me compressed WAV formats, often I can't unscramble them.
Don't send MP3s, WMAs or AACs, they sound cr*p & you'll be wasting your money.
Post them to me on a disc (CDR or DVDR):

Or you can use an FTP service (to email@example.com):
www.sendspace.com and www.yousendit.com both work well.
Sendspace has a bigger file size limit, is easy to use & they
have a neat "wizard" application if you do frequent transfers.
I used to advise people to zip the files as it provides an error checker.
However, having done some listening tests, like so many things to do with
digital, in theory it should make no difference but in practice it does.
So don't zip them
