How to send files to a mixing engineer that will save time and money
#4 through #9 are the most important.
Remove sounds that should not be in the final mix.
2) Record your guitar and bass tracks with a DI channel along with the mic channel.
1. Having a recording of the clean, un-amplified signal also means that you’ll have the option of re-amping at a later stage. This is where you can send the previously recorded track out of your computer or console and into an amplifier, and then re-record this new amplified output with a microphone. This is a great way to play around with different types of mic or amp settings to help achieve the sound you’re after
3) MIDI and Virtual Instruments:
If you have these in your session, it is usually best to send the printed audio and the midi information
4) Correctly label your tracks so I don't have to guess what it is
1. Gtr DI 1
2. AC Gtr R
3. OH hihat
4. OH floor tom
5. Room Mono
8. Bass DI
5) Consolidate and export all tracks
from the same start time and at the same sample and bit rate they were recorded at, so they will line up when I put them into my D.A.W. Your D.A.W should save them to a designated folder for that songs session. Make sure your files are saved as .wav
6) Make a text file with all important information for every song. Include:
bpm (beats per minute, if it was recording to a click)
