Why sound matters

Lossless audio formats capture every aspect of the music during a sound recording. That means the recordings we provide contain all the detail, all the expression and all the ambience the artist wanted you to hear. The same details and expression that are ignored and flattened by lossy formats such as MP3. Listen and you'll see.

Please remember the better the recording, the larger the file size.

Our recordings are available in a format called Audio Interchange File Format, or AIFF for short. Of this format, we provide two variants in sound quality. Please remember the better the recording, the larger the file size.

AIFF 24-bit, 48KHz (Studio master sound quality)

This format is the highest quality available from Society of Sound. Indistinguishable from the studio master, the files are uncompressed for optimal listening quality and are compatible with Windows Media Player, iTunes, VLC Player and most other media players.

AIFF 16-bit, 44.1KHz (CD quality)

This format offers CD-quality sound and just like its 24-bit partner is naturally compatible with iPhones, iPads, iPods and iTunes. Simply download and import into your iTunes library to begin listening to your high-quality music.

If you are unsure if you can play these files, you can download trial tracks to test them before buying a membership.
