We accept files in virtually any file format (.WAV, .MP3, .AVI, .MOV, etc…) We also accept singing samples on cassette, VHS, CD or DVD which you can mail to us - you will be supplied an address to mail your cassette too - this method will take a little longer to get the results back as we will need to wait until we receive your recording in the mail.
