How to prepare your song for mixing

October 26, 2020

 You have spent time, passion, energy, and even money on your song as a recording artist; don't throw it all down the drain with the mix!  Here are some tips to maximize your mix.


Tip #1 - Start with a high quality recording!  If you are recording yourself and inexperienced, read articles, look at Youtube videos, and ask lots of questions.


Tip #2 -  Bounce/Export all the audio files as individual tracks.  This gives your mix engineer more flexibility and quality control over the final product.


Tip #3 - Bounce/Export all the individual audio files "dry" (this means with no effects on them)


Tip #4 - List a couple song references that you want your song to sound similar too in terms of overall sound or effects.


Tip #5 - Be clear with your communication and expectations.  Uncommunicated expectations are seldom met.  And don't be afraid to ask the mix engineer questions.  Most engineers that I know welcome and prefer when you ask him or her questions, as opposed to assuming.
