If you’re using pro tools, It would be ideal to get the tracks in the order listed below with the tracks color coded.
Please commit any pitch correction, and/or any effects that you’re 100% attached to. But… . Leave reverbs and delays active just in case I need to clean up the audio before the effects.
If you’re not using pro tools, please export wav files at your session sample/bit rate, and number the beginning of each file name (01, 02, 03, >) so they will drop into pro tools in this order. Also include the tempo, and/or a list of tempo changes with bar numbers.
Drums (Dark Blue):
Kick, snare, hat, toms, overheads, room, etc
Electronic Drums (Light blue)
Kick, snare, hat, toms/fills
Electronic Drum Hats/Cymbals (Yellow/Gold)
Percussion (Lighter blue)
Synth Bass (Purple)
Acoustic Guitars (Light Green)
When possible, please combine multiple mics/amps for each part.
Synths/Keys (Light Blue)
Horns/Strings/Additional Instrumentation (Orange)
SFX/Transition FX (Light Purple)
Background Vocals (Dark Red)
Vocal FX (Pink)
Please order tracks in the order that they appear in the song. For example, a synth part is in the intro, so it would be the first synth track, and then a new synth comes in for the verse would be next, then a new one for the chorus.
Delete all muted clips/regions.
All aux returns should come after the tracks that are sending to them. Fx returns and master at the bottom/far right of the session. Please also have the latest rough as the last track in the session.
Feel free to send files using any file sharing site of your choice. I can also provide a dropbox upload link if necessary.
