HOW TO PREPARE

 

MIX SESSION

- Make sure your performances are top notch and everything sounds just the way you want it.
- If any tracks needed to be cleaned up (spill, clicks, pops, burps) make sure this is done ahead of time. Otherwise editing charges will apply.
- We do not fix timing and pitch issues. If these need to be done see above.
- Be sure all files are grouped in their own folders (Drums, Guitars, Vocals, etc.) and each track is properly labeled (01_Kick, 02_Snare, etc.)
- Make sure your audio files are .WAV format and at least 44.1/16. MP3 files are a no-no.
- Leave headroom. If any type of compression has been applied on the individual tracks make a note of those settings
- Though most mix sessions are typically unattended, it's fine to have one representative in the room during a session. Choose him/her wisely.
- No illegal drugs are permitted.
- Money: A 50% deposit is required no later than seven (7) prior to a session. Balance is due before any work walks out the door.
- If you need to cancel or reschedule, 48 hour advance notice is required or you forfeit your deposit.

 

RECORDING SESSION

- Make sure you're tight and well rehearsed. This will save you time and money, not to mention a quality recording.
- Have your songs finished, then see above again.
- Unless doing a live recording leave all your friends/family/children/spouses/others at home. They will ultimately be a distraction and cost you time and money.
- Be sober.
- Money: A 50% deposit is required no later than seven (7) prior to a session. Balance is due before any work walks out the door.
- If you need to cancel or reschedule, 48 hour advance notice is required or you forfeit your deposit.

VINYL MASTERING

- Make sure your final mixes sound exactly the way you want them to. Though mastering can enhance your mix it cannot fix a bad one.
- Leave plenty of headroom. -4db is a good compromise.
- Make sure your audio files are .WAV format and at least 44.1/16. MP3 files are a no-no.
- Keep in mind vinyl's limitations. The side length for a 7" should not be more than 6 minutes and no longer than 20 minutes for 12". Longer lengths can introduce distortion.

For all other session types, please give us the details and we'll be happy to provide further suggestions and instructions.
