How to prepare files for mixing:

File Format:

- 24bit and keep your sample rate as you recorded it.

- .wav

- make sure no track is clipping/distorting


Naming of files:
 

1. Name each file starting with the type of element it contains
 

2. Create 6 folders and name them: “vocals”, “drums”, “bass”, “guitars”, “fx”, “keys” and move the appropriate files into their respective folders.


 

3. Zip all the folders into a new folder that contains the artist name, song name and bpm: Artist X – Song X – 120bpm

When exporting please bypass all plugin instances that you may have applied when creating your rough mix. Exceptions:

- Keep plugins that are a crucial part of the sound design and define the character of a sound, e.g. AutoTune vocal effects or extreme filtering to completely change the tone of a sound
 

- Keep filter automation


- Keep all plugins on sounds that are sound effects in themselves, such as booms, sweeps, or risers
