Thanks for taking the time to fill out our mixing form! The following questions and information will help us put the best foot forward on your project and make sure we are all on the same page. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the “additional information and questions" section.
To start, we ask that your songs are sent to us in a ProTools file or in consolidated WAV forms.
ProTools Delivery: If you are sending us a ProTools session, make sure all of the files are consolidated. Extra files in the background, fades, and clip gain lines take up extra memory that is unnecessary. We do own a lot of plug-ins, but we may not own that special one or two that added a specific magic to your song. Please bounce all of your tracks that require that social sound. The only track we request to have an additional dry track are Lead Vocals.
WAV file delivery: If you are sending us WAV files to mix, there are a few steps that need to be taken to make sure everything goes smoothly. All WAV files should have the same starting point so they all line up when imported into ProTools. All files should be exported as they are recorded. Example; the kick mic should be in mono and the overheads should be in stereo (or dual mono). When a session is all stereo files, the stereo image is not as precise and can loose clarity as well as take up more memory.
Files should be double checked to make sure that there are no clips, bad fades, or bad notes! Having to re-send files takes time and energy and will delay your project. Please make sure your files are correct and final.
Please export the tracks in their native form (in the same quality you recorded them). If you recorded in 48.000kHz/24bit (example: 44.1, 48, 96) then please send us the WAV forms in the same sample rate/bit rate. Leave it to your mastering engineer to dither your tracks for final masters and general production and streaming.
