Mixdown & Mastering FAQs
What do I need to provide?
Please send 24bit WAV/AIFF files with minimum -3dB headroom. Naming them clearly will avoid any problems as well.
I have plug-ins on the master bus, is this okay?
No limiters on the master bus please! If you want plug-ins on the master channel to show what you’re after, then send 2 versions of the file, one with and one without.
How long does it take?
It normally takes 3-4 days for a master, 6-7 for a mix, depending on the queue.
Do I need to pay first?
Payment secures time for the work to be done. I will provide an invoice and from there, you can send the files.
How many stems should I send for a mixdown?
8 Stems for instrumentation is a good amount normally. Kick, Bassline, Snare/Clap as separate files, the rest grouped in stems for example: Percussions & Hi-Hats, Synths, Sound FX, Vocals etc. This obviously depends on the genre.
I have a lot of effects on my mix, is this okay?
Of course. If you want to enhance your effects, then send versions with and without them so we have options.
What is a reference track and why do you need one?
A reference track is any song you like the sound of and want your mix to have similar sonics to.
