Ready to Mix?
STORE all tracks as WAV or AIFF files – no MP3s or other compressed formats.
LISTEN FOR NOISE AND DISTORTION and avoid compression. Keep your levels CONSERVATIVE and LET US handle getting you the mix hottest mix we can.
REMOVE ALL PLUG-INS from the session. If there is an effect you like, print it to a separate track, and give us both the original and effected tracks.
ZERO OUT ALL AUX/SEND ROUTING LEVELS. Or just delete your AUX/SEND channels.
ALL TRACKS MUST BEGIN AT THE SAME START TIME. Set your LEFT LOCATOR to zero on the timeline. Set your RIGHT LOCATOR to the end point of the longest track.
Use a FILE NAMING structure that is CONSISTENT and MAKES SENSE to someone seeing the tracks for the first time. Rename any auto-generated filenames.
Be EXTRA CLEAR in labeling tracks and getting the session ORGANIZED. YOU are familiar with your sequence, but WE are seeing it for the first time. Missing or wrong tracks, or extra time trying to decipher unorganized sessions will incur extra costs, billed hourly.
Also provide us 2-3 commercial songs as REFERENCES and tell us what you like about them.
You can upload single files on our website here. For mixing jobs and larger files, please post your tracks to any cloud service (e.g. yousendit.com) and have it send us a link at [email protected] Or if you really want to, you can send us a thumbdrive or DATA CD/DVD (not audio cd!) with your files to the snail mail address above.
