Guidelines for preparing and delivering files for mixing
Please read this or watch the video below before delivering files for a mix.
Mixing – a two way street
There’s two ways to go about this. Either you deliver a ProTools session (jump to the column on the right). Or if you work in any other DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) you need to bounce out all your mix files from the same starting point.
If you work in Cubase there’s an important thing you need to do. In the Cubase export window you need to select left/right channels, if not selected, Cubase will export multi channel audio which then shows up as mono files when imported.
Naming and structure
Check your files
Go to “External references”
If you deliver a ProTools session
The same norms for naming and comping applies, but you can however keep your plug-ins activated.
If possible please save your session with delay compensation enabled, this makes sure that the timing stays the same when I open your session.
Ready to export
Another thing I use a lot is what I call external references. This can be any piece of music that so to speak exist in the real world. Music that you really like and feel acquainted with. Preferably in the same genre as your music, to work as a reference tool. If you have any external references or prior releases or other songs you like and feel inspiring, please include those, either as files or write them in a text document as links .
What is the mix for?
If you have any questions what so ever regarding this information overload, please do not hesitate to write or call me.
