Voice-Over Demo File Formats
The universal standard audio file for delivery on the Internet is called MPEG-3 or more commonly known as MP3.
The MP3 file should be encoded at the bit rate of between 128kbps (standard) to 160kbps (medium) to 320kbps (highest) for optimum quality yet maintaining a relatively small file size for delivery over the Internet.
MP3 File Equation
When trying to estimate how large a file your voice-over demo will be in MP3 format, consider this equation. • 1 minute of stereo digital audio, encoded at 128kbps = 1 MB MP3 file
