HOW TO EXPORT YOUR FILES FOR MASTERING
MIXING ADVICE & TIPS
It’s important to know how to prepare and submit your mixes so you can get the best sound for your songs. There are a number of audio mastering tips that will help you prepare your mixes for mastering. Here are a few things to consider.
Eliminate Noise on the Mix
As you go through your mix, eliminate any noise or pops that may be in each track. Use fades as necessary to cut out any spots that may just contain recorded noise. Cleaning up individual tracks when they’re not in use within your mixing sessions can help prevent the buildup or exaggeration of unwanted noise after mastering. If this is done in the mix stage, it will keep the overall noise level down when the mastering engineer begins to equalize and compress the mix.
If you’d like any equipment noise or hiss to be removed or reduced during intros, outros, or other quiet parts where any hiss/noise is usually more noticeable, please be sure to include a sample (at least 1 second) of ONLY the hiss/noise (with no music or other sounds) before or after the song.
It is strongly recommended to very carefully triple check the final mixes for any stray noises, pops, and clicks that may become more noticeable after mastering.
