Mix Delivery Guidelines

*** PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR LATEST ROUGH MIXES AS ‘.MP3’ FILES FOR REFERENCE PURPOSES ***

*** REMOVE ALL PLUGINS FROM THE LEAD VOCAL ***
(if any plug in or effect processing is key to the songs production  then please duplicate the track and remove all plugins as a backup for SAW. Name this track ‘Raw Vox’ )

 

If guitar + bass ''DI'' tracks were used to feed amp sims etc please provide these also.

IF BPM IS KNOWN - WRITE IN MAIN FOLDER NAME AFTER SONG TITLE
FOR EXAMPLE: ‘’HITS DI JOUR - 125BPM’’


 

 

What to do next:

 


 

  1. Label all your tracks properly ( refer to my label system below )

     

  2. Consolidate your tracks; each track should be the entire length of the song and they all need to start from the beginning of the session. This way when I import your multi-tracks into my session, they line up perfectly.
    *If you are unclear on how to do this, there are a ton of YouTube tutorials.

     

  3. Export your tracks:

 

Download the template ‘SAW SESSION Folder Hierarchy’ :

  • Provide a tempo map if applicable

  • ZIP or compress your folder
     

   4. Upload your session folder to our cloud:
