Upload any files using the button above! If sending a whole folder it's best to zip up files
I can accept WAV or AIFF files for mastering. These should be stereo interleaved files, preferably at 24 bit and whatever sample rate was used during the recording/mixing process (44.1kHz or higher generally). Please don’t limit your mixes, and try to make sure there is no clipping or distortion on them. I usually prefer mixes to peak at -2dBFS to -6dBFS in the loudest sections of each song. Leaving this kind of headroom, will inevitably allow me to give you my best work.
I mix using Logic X. All I need is a set of consolidated/synced WAV or AIFF files per song.
1) Please deliver consolidated audio tracks starting at an identical moment on the timeline using their original recorded sample rate, bit depth, and mono/stereo file type. Do not "bounce" each track individually via the stereo bus (which results in a stereo file each time). Be sure to use an "export all tracks" type function in your DAW.
2) Please remove all plugins (EQ, compression, distortion, delay, reverb etc) prior to export. If there are tracks that utilize plugins to create a specific sound which you are confident you like and want to maintain in the mix stage, please do. However, I strongly advise that you please send 2 versions for these tracks -- one with the effects printed and one without. Any plugins printed that have any sort of “noise” built in (hiss, hum, tape sound, etc) I’d please ask you to disable.
3) Label audio files as best as possible if you have time -- preferably with prefixes by instrument group (DRM, BASS, GTR, VOX, KEY, etc) so I can drop tracks into my mix template session without having to guess or figure out what's what by listening. Please separate prefixes and track name with an underscore character followed by any numbering if there are layers of the same content. example: DRM_KickIn.wav, GTR_Amp1,wav, VOX_Lead1.wav, VOX_Double2.wav, etc...
4) If the track was recorded to a click/grid, please provide BPM per song. Providing the key of the song is often helpful too!
5) Archive all files by song in a zip file and upload either via wetransfer.com, a dropbox share folder, or some other kind of online file transfer site. You can also mail a hard drive if you choose.
