1. What is the difference between a MultiTrack and a CustomMix?
The main difference between the two is the amount of audio tracks each offers. A MultiTrack offers all the included instrument tracks as separate audio files and can be used in a DAW like Ableton, or in our free Playback app available here.
A CustomMix is a single audio file that contains everything you choose to include by mixing directly within a song page under the CustomMix area. If you need a performance track or Accompaniment Track then we recommend checking out our Accompaniment Tracks.
2. What is the difference between a WAV and M4A audio file format?
The WAV file is a raw audio file that is the highest audio quality we offer. It is a bigger file size and will take up more space on a device compared to the M4A file.
The M4A file is a slightly compressed audio file that takes less space on a device, but the audio quality is not as high as the WAV file.

Credits are MultiTracks.com's very own currency. One credit equals one dollar. You can purchase items directly through the online cart or you can purchase credits in bulk and receive discounts for doing so. You spend your credits whenever you download a file. The credit cost of any file varies based upon its product type, size, complexity and whether it's an original master recording. Credits expire one year from the date of purchase and you'll receive many reminders along the way that will let you know before your credits expire.
