How to prepare for an online mixing session
- Make sure that you are satisfied with the recordings and your performance/s
- Complete all editing
- Print all midi, virtual instruments and any additional effects or processing
- Supply multi-track files dry, without reverb or effects
- Prepare the correct file format
- Double check your audio files in a new session
- Tuning & Timing issues

Please do not assume any tuning or timing issues within the multi-tracks will be automatically resolved. If a small amount of vocal tuning is desired you can provide this information. If our engineer suspects the amount of tuning or editing will significantly intrude on mix time, we will let you know in advance. Large amounts of tuning and editing considered a “production” will be charged for and will delay turnaround time.

Commonly confused. Simply put:
Mixing is the process of manipulating the song on a track-by-track basis. Setting levels, EQ’ing and compressing instruments and groups of instruments to create a two-channel (stereo left and right) mix of your song.
Mastering is the manipulation of that two-channel stereo mix, putting the finishing touches on it to make it as “presentable” as possible. Mastering also includes ordering, spacing and prepping a track for its final delivery format. Of course, this is a gross simplification of both processes, but it is important to understand the fundamental differences.
Export individual stems from your DAW (individual files e.g Kick, Snare, Hi Hat,lead vocals, backing vocals etc at the sample rate of your session and the highest bit depth your DAW will allow. 24 bit 48k is a good start. Important – Please remove any processing from your master bus
