  • Make sure you have all audio tracks ready to mix in 44.1kHz/24 Bit WAV audio format and numbered consistently for easy identification.
  • Audio tracks should be aligned to the beginning of the song to facilitate time alignment of the tracks.

  • Check that all tracks are recorded correctly, without errors or unwanted noise. Please make any necessary changes or corrections before submitting your files.
  • If you want certain tracks to be mixed in a certain way (for example, if you want to emphasize a certain part or instrument), please provide clear and detailed instructions in the email.
  • Be sure to include any reference songs or previous mixes. These files can help the sound engineer understand your vision and preferences for mixing.
  • Make sure all files are named clearly and consistently so you can easily identify them (e.g., "lead_voice.wav", "rhythm_guitar.wav", etc.)
  • Remove any plug-ins from tracks unless they are effects you want, alternatively you can send both the version with effects applied and the version without effects.

  • Check that the volume of each track is adequate and not too low or too loud (about -6 dBFS is fine). The peak volume must never exceed the clipping level (0 dBFS) .

  • Upload files to a trusted sharing service (Wetransfer/Dropbox/Google Drive)
    • You deliver the final mix in an uncompressed format with no limiting. A 24-bit/44.1 kHz or higher WAV or AIFF file is a common format for mastering.
    • If you have specific preferences for loudness or final tonal balance, please provide detailed information.
    • Make sure the song has a short pause at the beginning and end to avoid unwanted cuts or overlaps.
    • If your song is part of an album, please provide a detailed list of the order of the tracks and the desired breaks between them.
    • If you want to fade in or out, specify your preferred fade duration and type.
    • Check that the volume of the mix is ​​adequate and is neither too soft nor too loud (about -6 dBFS is fine). The peak volume must never exceed the clipping level (0 dBFS) .
    • Upload files to a trusted sharing service (Wetransfer/Dropbox/Google Drive)


      • Before you begin, make sure you have a version of the final mix that is satisfactory in terms of balancing levels and dynamics. Make sure the mix has a consistent sound and reflects the desired sound for the song.
      • Create a series of separate audio "stems" for your song. Stems are groups of related audio tracks that can be mixed together during the mastering process. For example, you could create stems for vocal tracks, string tracks, drum tracks, and so on. Make sure each stem is a separate audio file in WAV or AIFF format at 44.1kHz/24 Bit or higher
      • Clearly label each stem with the name of the track group it represents. For example, "Vocal Stem", "Drums Stem", "Guitar Stem", etc. This will make it easier for the engineer to identify and work with the various elements of the mix.
      • Make sure all stems are of equal length and are aligned with the start of the song. This way, the sound engineer can mix them together without having to make alignment or duration corrections.
      • Verify that each stem has no effects or plug-ins applied. Make sure you submit the files without any EQ, compression, reverb or other mixing effects. Stem mastering focuses on the overall processing of the mix, so it's important to leave room for the sound engineer to work on individual elements during the mastering process.
      • Compress all stems in a single zip archive or use a reliable file sharing service (WeTransfer/Dropbox/Google Drive) to send the files to the sound engineer.
      • Provide the sound engineer with a reference mix or song that represents the sound you want to achieve. This can help the sound engineer better understand your preferences and adjust the mastering accordingly.

        Remember that stem mastering offers more possibilities to intervene on the mix than traditional mastering, allowing the sound engineer to work on individual elements. By providing the stems correctly and communicating your preferences, you will be able to obtain the best final result for your song.
