Unlike some other sites, on BANDiZMO your song will be played at the same quality and KBPS as you upload it, up to a maximum of 320KBPS.

We know that you have spent hours making sure your songs sound just right, so we feel they should be played at that bit rate as well.

Windows: In iTunes go to Edit>Preferences>Advanced>Importing>Import Using:

Mac: In iTunes go to iTunes>Preferences>Advanced>Importing>Import Using:

Then select "MP3 Encoder".

You can then highlight any song, right click and select 'Convert Selection to MP3'. iTunes will then copy the song as a new track as an mp3 (you therefore don't lose your original mpeg4 version).
