Are you a musician, artist or in a band that is working on a new music project? This guide is part of a series intended to help you get the best experience each time you are in the recording studio. The topic for this guide is what does want to bring into a mixing session in a professional studio. will assume you have recorded your own tune and are going into the studio to work with a professional mix engineer. This is an important question because there’s a good deal of confusion about this subject.
If you have recorded your own song you are likely using a digital audio workstation Pro-Tools, Logic, Reaper, etc. to create your multi-track recording. So you will have many distinct tracks with unique instruments guitars, bass, kick drum, snare drum, etc. Your mix engineer will require every one of those tracks separately. There’s a few ways this can happen. 1 method is to bring the whole Raz Klinghoffer session endeavor to your mix engineer and have him or her export the sound files they require.
However, if you are using software that is different from the engineer then you will need to export or leave each track separately to a distinct stereo/mono audio file .WAV, etc. You would do so by each individual monitor and rendering out just that track as a high-definition sound file. It is important to leave every track to the specific length of your whole tune so everything syncs up correctly when your mix engineer opens up it. So even in the event that you have got a vocal track that only plays together throughout the tune, the render of the track should still be the whole amount of time of your tune.
Another Important consideration is the electronic resolution you leave out your files to. This refers to the sample rate and bit depth most commonly 44.1 kHz and 16-bits. It is necessary to render out at the native resolution or the resolution where you listed your audio/MIDI. Finally it is important that none of your own unique monitors or your master track is clipping or entering the red and you do not have any effects on the master bus compression, limiting, etc. of your leaves. Using a clean render ensures that your mix engineer can do the best possible job for you. Simply copy all of your paths to a CD/DVD, USB stick or external drive and deliver them into your mix engineer.
