iTunes Is Going Away But Apple Digital Masters Lives On…  

Apple’s initiative for delivering high-quality audio to its listeners has been recently rebranded from ‘Mastered For iTunes’ to ‘Apple Digital Masters’(ADM). This initiative allows mastering engineers to preserve the highest-possible quality when encoding master recordings for digital distribution through iTunes (now Apple Music). Apple’s ADM tools and guidelines prevent clipping and other unwanted remnants of the loudness wars — when producers and mastering engineers kept turning up the volume on recorded music at the expense of dynamic range.

What Does Apple Digital Masters Mean To You?

For Artists & Songwriters: The Apple Digital Masters incentive is an opportunity for songwriters. The platform allows artists to deliver their music in the highest possible quality.

For Audio Engineers: The sonic quality of your mixes will be preserved faithfully and accurately when delivered to listeners around the world; exactly as you intend it to be heard.

James Anderson at The Bit Farm is an Apple-certified Apple Digital Masters Content Provider. We provide this service to our customers at no additional cost.

‘Home’ Single

The album art is a piece by my uncle Lawrence Carroll who passed away earlier this year. It was a post from his Instagram page and he left a beautiful comment which I feel reflects much of what this song is about:

“After my paintings were shipped off for my show in Magdeburg I was cleaning my home studio. Littered all over the floors were scraps of cardboard from the making of my Magdeburg paintings. They were tiny scraps and I wanted to use them. I collected them all like gold and simply started to piece them together. Over some days I finished. I love making beautiful things, and I love making things from nothing. You don’t need much to make something.”
