Multitrack prep

  • Name each audio file clearly (eg. Lead Vox, BV 1, Kick Sub etc.).
  • Audio files must start from the start point of the song.
  • Make sure files do not clip.
  • Remove all effects and  processing plugins before printing. If there is an effect you want  included, please provide two versions: one with effects and one dry.
  • All files must be WAV or AIFF files. Any midi tracks will need to be printed.
  • Files must be 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96Khz and have 16, 24 or 32bit depth.
  • Create a separate zipped file for each song, clearly labeled with song title (and track #, if known).

We also need

  • The vision for the album/song:
    • What’s the story you’re telling?
    • What journey are you taking the listener on?
    • What do you want them to feel?
  • A rough mix of each song (this can be included in the zipped file).
  • References (if any) – Spotify links are perfect for this.
  • The tempo of each song.
