USING OUR ONLINE / REMOTE MIXING SERVICE
+ As our engineers won’t be working with you in person, it’s important for us to gather as much information as possible about how you’d like your song to sound. So please send us your ideas, i.e. “I’d really like this to sound like a Diamond Head song”, or “I’d really like this to sound like a AC/DC song”, “give it a long fadeout”, “the vocal needs a slap back echo” etc…
+ If you have a rough mix, then send that along too and tell us what you like and don’t like about it.
+ Sending a commercially released reference song is also very useful.
Instructions like these will immediately give us a better idea of what you’re expecting and we are always open to suggestions.
In most cases, the turnaround time is within 15 to 20 days. However, Sound Pressure Studios and its engineers are very busy, so in exceptional circumstances it may be longer. If this is the case, you will be notified and given the option to cancel your mix and receive a refund.
HOW TO PROVIDE YOUR FILES
While making your order at the end of the order form you’ll find a link directly to www.wetransfer.com secure upload server in order for you to upload and send us all your audio files.
It is your responsibility to ensure the multi-tracks provided are ready for mixing.
Please do not assume any tuning or timing issues will be automatically resolved. However, if a small amount of vocal tuning is desired you can provide this information. If our engineer suspects the amount of tuning or editing will seriously intrude on mix time you will be informed.
Large amounts of tuning and editing will be charged for and will delay turnaround time. It is in your best interest to do any tuning and editing in your time so that Sound Pressure Studios engineers can maximize time spent mixing your song.
+ We accept WAV or AIFF files at 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz; 16 or 24 bit.
+ Please supply us with mono or stereo files, clearly named and without audio clipping.
+ You will need to provide multi-tracks that are consolidated or bounced from the start point of your song (bar 1 beat 1 or start time code). All files must be of the same duration, sample rate and bit depth.
+ We cannot accept DAW sessions (i.e Pro Tools, Logic, Reason, Ableton).
+ There is a 128 multi-track limit. A track cannot share different sounds, for example a backing vocal track with a guitar solo in the middle. If you need to bounce files to save on tracks, we suggest backing vocals and harmonies as a good place to start. Please ensure any bounces of this nature are in tune and in time before you bounce.
+ Please ensure you have uploaded all the correct multi-track files that you want to be included in your song.
+ We request that multi-track files are supplied dry, without reverb or effects. However, if you feel a specific effect, processing, or creative element (such as filter sweeps, delays etc) is an integral part of the sound, please provide the processed version plus a ‘dry safety’ version. This will not add your overall track count. Please label both versions clearly and mention this in the information you provide.
+ Print any midi/virtual instruments – we can only accept audio files.
+ Make sure you allow plenty of headroom when printing your multi-tracks to avoid clipping or distortion. These artifacts cannot be removed in the mix process.
+ In addition to as much written information as possible, you’re welcome to provide a rough mix and commercially released reference song. A commercial song is only a guide and results are completely dependent on the quality and style of the multi-track provided.
Put all your project files, WAV / AIFF / OMF / TXT in a folder and then compress that folder to a ZIP or RAR file! If you don’t have any compression utility, please find below some freeware software providers:
