Before going into detail how we can manage this we talk with the person in question to understand in what state the song is. We ask to send a link or an mp3 of the song so that we can check if we can give any tips before going into mixing.
If mixing is all you want, we won’t ask any other questions and you can skip ” (2/4) ” But our experience has shown us that in order to give the client what he wants, we need to know what the project needs.
For example: If the recording has been done fully analog, in a good recording environment, our work for mixing the track will not be very time consuming. But if we think there is more to gain in any way, we call or send an email with some tips to discuss options and possibilites.
Because, if there is a possibility to re-record or re-produce something, we advise to do so. The better the source, the better the mix, the better the mastering will be.
After we have established what it is you need, we ask you to send everything as seperate as possible. So we have more control over the process to tailor a more exact result for you.

* ALWAYS WRITE YOUR BPM AND KEY OF THE SONG WITH YOUR FILES. putting this in the folder/zip name is enough.
For example:
-I can’t Get Enough Seperate STEMS c# 128bpm(.zip)-
* Files have to have 1 bar of silence be for the song begins and after the song is finished.
* Every file has to have the same starting point and ending. If you have difficulties exporting your tracks, do not hesitate to ask us. We gladly help you out as best we can!
* We prefer to have everything in the same source as you have produced/recorded this in. For example: If you record vocals, guitars, etc. in 24 bit with a Sample rate of 44.1kHz, Do NOT export your files in any other bitrate or Sample rate. Any audio source from plugins (omnisphere, serum, Native Instruments, you name it) are exported in 24 bit. Not in 32 or in 16. We do advise to export in 44.1kHz with 24 bit. If the song is not intended for a movie nor dolby surround system, there’s no need for high quality exports. Because the final quality will not differ too much if the sound system is not specifically for cinema or movies.
* DO NOT FORGET TO BYPASS ANY BUS CHANNEL PLUGINS LIKE LIMITERS, EQ’s, etc. (If the sound is not specifically something you created on purpose)
* DO NOT FORGET TO BYPASS ANY MASTER CHANNEL PLUGINS LIKE LIMITERS, EQ’s, etc. (We cannot work with files which are already too processed to work on.)
* ALWAYS leave at least 7-10db of headroom.
