Please call us or email so we can discuss your requirements and talk you through the preparation of your project files for online mixing.
It’s great if you can send your consolidated / bounced audio files as .WAV or .AIFF files, ideally at 24bit rate and 96k, 88.2k or 48k sample rate.
16bit / 44.1k is OK but the higher the quality of the files you send us, the better job we can do for you.
We can work at sample rates up to 192k but this halves the i/o count down to 24 channels and is not recommended for most projects.
Consolidating your audio ready for online mixing
Please refer to the documentation that came with your DAW and look for the instructions on; consolidating audio files, export as audio files or bounce audio files. If you have any difficulties please don’t hesitate to call us and we’ll walk you through it.
The idea is to render each track in your project down to individual .wav files so that your audio can be sent to us with every track exactly the same length, with all your edits joined together, and any soft synths or VI’s bounced to audio. Although it might look like each track is already one audio file, in most cases, they will be made up from lots of takes and your DAW software handles linking them all together to look like one seamless track. It’s vitally important that when you bounce down your audio files you select all the files in your project, from the very start of the project file – otherwise we’ll end up with missing tracks that start part way into your tune.
Also – in most cases you SHOULD NOT apply any plug-in EQ, compression or reverb to any of your tracks. Before you consolidate or bounce your files, please disable all plug-ins!! After all – you’re sending the raw audio to us to mix – so let us decide what needs doing to it.
Want the sound of your mixes to match up with your favorite band? Just send us a list of tracks that you’d like us to reference to. This can be very useful in making sure we understand the direction you want to go in.
Again, any questions please give us a call and we’ll walk you through it!
