1.) Please make sure you send us a separate file for each track in the
mix. The files can either be .wav's or .aiff's, and should be no
smaller than 24 bit, 96kHz, 88.2kHz, 48kHz. We do accept 44,1KHz but we
prefer 48KHz as a starting point.
2.) Each file should be bounced/exported from bar 1, or whichever bar
number your song starts at in your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation refers
to your audio software package ie. Protools, Cubase, Logic, Fruity Loops
3.) Please make sure you bypass all plug-ins before exporting the separates.
You may choose to keep a certain effect plug-in if it is a characteristic
sound in the song and you don't want to lose it, however we prefer
to have all files as dry as possible.
4.) Now that you have bounced your files, we highly recommend using an
archiving utility to compress the files to a more internet-transfer friendly
size. In Mac OS, simply highlight all your exported files, right click
and select Compress Items. In Windows, Select your files or folder, Right-click,
point to Send to, and then click Compressed (zipped) folder. This will
wrap all your files into a single .zip file and reduce the overall file
size significantly, especially when dealing with separates.
