MIXDOWN AND MASTERING

– It is important to follow these guidelines in order to avoid unnecessary delay.

– If mixing more than 1 song, please indicate the order in which the songs are to be mixed.

– It is important to include a rough mix, either by mp3 or wav for us to reference when completing our initial review.

1) File format: Send each stem in the highest resolution possible from the source recording project in wav or aiff format, Avoid sending unintentional clipped or distorted stems. Ensure all stems are sent in singular format. For example do not combine various stems into 1 stem to lower stem count our fee is the same anyway.

2) Managing a session: Only one folder should be sent for each song. It should be labeled as “(Song title – BPM)”. No other session files should be included. It should be notated clearly and correctly so there is no misunderstanding what a part is. Parts that are not to be used should not be included.

3) Export Stems: Record any effects that are part of the tracks-integrity into the stem. All automation should be removed from your session and included in each audio stem that you’re happy with.

4) Track Labelling: Since there is no standard for this, We ask you to spend some time and label the instruments so there is no guessing what they are. As with all projects, song notes are helpful for specific requirements and the overall objective.

As with all mix projects, it will depend on your requirement. We will give you a timeline once we have received the work sent to us.
