SENDING MUSIC FILES
For optimal results please do not process your stereo mixdowns. This would include applying compression, EQ, or limiting to the final mix buss. However, you may add processing to the individual tracks within the mix.
Although its good practice to get a strong signal, don't let the audio clip at all. If your hitting 0db at mixdown, your pushing the levels too much. Getting your tracks to peak at a maximum of around -3dB gives the mastering engineer headroom to work with your audio.
Avoid any unnecessary sample rate conversions and/or word length reduction unless it is unavoidable and you have professional grade sample rate converters and word length reduction methods.
Please send files in one of the following formats: (AIFF or WAV) Please do NOT send MP3's or any other compressed audio. We want high quality audio from the start for your music.
