MiXiNG & Re-MiXiNG

 

       We do Mixing for Bands, Songwriters, etc. Your track will be mixed in a dedicated recording studio with proper acoustic environment.


Preparing Your Files for Mixing

There are a few organisational steps you need to take to clean up your session before sending your files off to us.

1.You’ll need to hide all muted, inactive, MIDI or any other track that you didn’t intend to play in the final mix.  Set up the files as clearly as you can by making sure the tracks are clearly labeled (i.e. El Guitar, Main Vocal, etc).

2.If you do have MIDI tracks, you must record the MIDI sounds to an audio track. (Alternatively you can ask us to do so if you don’t have good sound module).

3.If you have special effects that are part of your audio track, record the track to a new audio track.

4.Please be sure to mention the sounds you had in mind in the description of your order.  You may also include reference tracks from similar artists to clarify the “mix sound” you had in mind.


Cleaning up your session

1.Make sure to double check all edit points throughout your song and make sure there aren’t any noticeable clicks or clips that would make your edit obvious in the final mix.

2.Remove all plug ins and automation you may have applied to your song within your own session.  This will ensure that all of the files will transfer over to us correctly, and we’ll use our own plug-ins and automation techniques in our mix.


Consolidating your tracks within your session

1.When you have all your tracks lined up and ready to send to mixing, it’s important to listen to your project from start to finish.  Double check for errors in your song before consolidating your tracks.

2.Then, select all the tracks, first by clicking on the first channel, holding the shift button and clicking the last tracks, and then by clicking Apple (or control) A, and consolidate them by clicking: Edit > Consolidate (Pro Tools).

3.Now you should see all your tracks from the same starting point (0:00:00) in your project from beginning to end.


Exporting your tracks as wav files

1.To finally export your tracks as wav files, select all of your tracks like in step 2, and export your with the same resolution as the project.

2.Make sure to select a destination that you’ll remember at a later point, and click the Export button.

3.To check you got everything alright, create a new project, drop the exported  files to the new project and play to make sure everything sounds OK.


Congrats!   Now you have the files exported and ready to be sent to our A-DUB mix engineer.

1.  Zip the folder of the exported files by holding control+clicking the folder, and then > add to archive (On a PC it’s: right-click on the folder and > add to archive)
