Prepare your files

Only send the tracks you want in the mix

Send tracks in WAV format with all tracks bounced from the beginning of the session

Have no effect or equalization on any tracks unless it is a must for that track, such as certain sound on a keyboard.

Bounce tracks at unity gain (0)

Name all tracks properly like Lead Vox (vox=vocal) Snare Top, Bass, Kick, GTR1, etc

Label exported folder something like “Song Title”,98 BPM,  24 BIT 44.1K

Have vocals tuned at the studio you recorded it or let me know ahead of time that vocals need tuning, there is an option for vocal tuning in the mix packages.

If you have a reference track send that as well

Bounce an mp3 mix of everything as a guide to check and make sure everything is there.
