USEFUL INFORMATION

  • Prepare your files for mastering

    Before your session, we recommend that you consult this help on the specifics of audio files.

     

    We recommend that you check each file carefully and listen to all of them, including the stems.

     
    • Do not apply any limiters, compressors, or equalizers before your export.
       
    • Check that your files meet the following conditions:
       
      • Formats: .wav or .aiff
         
      • Resolution : 24 or 32 Bits ( without dithering )
         
      • Frequency: 44, 48, 96, or 192 k
         
      • Volume: -2 to -6 db (master volume only)
         

    If you are unsure about how to export your tracks, you must export your files with the same resolution and frequency as you used when you created your session in DAW (digital audio workstation).

     

    If you need more information , you can refer to the support and documentation of your DAW (digital audio workstation).

  • About archiving masters

     
    We do not undertake to store your masters. Once we have sent them to you, it is up to you to store and save them. We keep them for a certain period of time, for the purpose of revisions and retouching only. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to send them to you again after a certain period of time.
