Almost any kind of musical format is accepted, but for guideline purposes here are standard formats for mixes:
- 44.1k to 96k PCM digital audio files
- Analog Tape (1/2" or 1/4" with alignment tones of at least 30 seconds each)
- Audio CD
Please contact us for rates, terms, and to discuss your specific needs.
A couple of things to prepare for your session in advance:
A final sequence/tracklist with correct titles (if you're still unsure about your sequence flow then a working sequence is sufficient as a starting point)
Mastering notes/ideas/suggestions that could be useful during the session
Album or song references you'd like for your engineer to A/B during the session
Vinyl sidebreak, speed (33 1/3 or 45RPM) and catalog# if you plan on cutting lacquers. Remember, the shorter the side the better the cut
ISRC/UPC codes and final song and album titles if you plan on pressing CDs
Instrumentals: if you plan on mastering instrumentals or any alternative versions of your mixes like TV or performance tracks please deliver these files with the main mixes. This avoids unnecessary recall time since the signal chain is analog; this means that the additional passes can be printed through the console together with the mains during the same session.
