When does Simplecast re-encode or transcode audio files?

  1. If you upload a non-mp3 formatted file such as .wav or .m4a
  2. If the Bit Rate is 128Kbps or higher

Does Simplecast 'process' or 'sweeten' the audio with any compression or effects?
No. Simplecast does not alter the fidelity of your audio files. 

Is Stereo or Mono affected when an audio file is re-coded?
No. Stereo/Mono encoding is kept as-is.

What settings should I use if I do not want my audio file re-coded?
If you upload an mp3 audio file 128Kbps or less, we will not re-encode or transcode the audio.
