Preparing for mastering a single song
Make sure the mix does not have a peak limiter, maximizer, or any other sound processing on the master fader or stereo mix. The best end result is achieved by a mixing with enough headroom. Don’t worry if it’s not as loud as another mastered song you’re referring to. The final volume level will be adjusted during mastering.
If you or your mixer has mixed with a peak limiter or other volume processing, please send both versions with and without limiter for evaluation and reference.
Send the stereo mix at the same sample rate as your mix session. Do not convert the sample rate to another value that could affect the audio quality. For the binary depth, store at the highest possible bit rate. Regardless of the recorded bit depth (often 24 bits), set the bit depth of the mix/render/final bounce to 32-bit floating point. REAPER users also have an option for 64-bit floating point values. Logic Pro X users are always limited to 24-bit bounces. Most DAWs allow 32-bit rendering. This is because most DAWs process 32-bit (or more) floating point audio, so even if the recording setting is 24 bits, your mix occurs at a higher depth that should be maintained.
In the “Further Information” field you can enter other songs that you would like to have referenced during mastering. Note down some aspects you want to address with sound, or if you want us to eliminate all noises before or after the song, for example.
If your song has unwanted noises at the beginning or end of the recording, such as recorders, guitar amplifiers, background noises, etc., please leave a few seconds of this disturbance at the beginning and/or end of the song. This enables detailed and transparent noise reduction. Please, because that’s important, just a few seconds of noise without music.
Please listen carefully to the mix file you submitted. Make sure that there are no errors or problems that can be solved before mastering. Sometimes a DAW or a plugin can create a playback/bounce/export error that is not present in the DAW during playback, but only in the bounce. Checking the quality of the mix helps ensure that mastering does not have to be repeated due to a problem with the original file.
