Preparing your tracks for Mastering
Preparing your track for mastering is an important step in the music production process. Here are some tips to help you prepare your track for mastering:
Mix your track to the best of your ability: Before sending your track to be mastered, make sure that your mix is as polished and refined as possible. This includes making sure that each element of your track is balanced, and that there is no clipping or distortion.
Leave headroom: Make sure that there is enough headroom in your track before sending it for mastering. This means leaving some space between the loudest part of your track and the maximum level (0dB). This will give the mastering engineer some room to work with during the mastering process.
Remove unnessesary processing: Before sending your track for mastering, make sure that you remove all limiting that you may have added to your mix. This will allow the mastering engineer to work with a clean slate.
Export your track in high-quality WAV format: When exporting your track, make sure that you export it in high-quality WAV format. This will ensure that the mastering engineer has access to the best possible source material for the mastering process.
Label your files clearly: Make sure that you label your files clearly, with the correct file name and format. This will make it easier for the mastering engineer to work with your files.
