What is hi-res audio?

HIRESAUDIO

High-resolution audio is exactly as it sounds, audio that is of a particularly high resolution, higher than C.D. quality and most definitely higher than .mp3 files.

Hi-res audio files are usually 24bit, and at a sampling frequency of 96kHz, or 192kHz.

When getting your tracks mastered it is recommended that you give the mastering engineer the highest resolution file possible. For this our mastering engineers usually recommend a sampling frequency of 96kHz and a bit depth of 24. Having files at this resolution gives our mastering engineers the highest resolution files to work with.
