Prepare Your Files

Choose your DAW to see how to prepare your files


STEP 1: Bounce A Stereo Rough Mix (WAV or MP3)

If you haven't bounced a rough mix of your song(s) now is the time to do so. The rough mix is very important.
It speeds up the process by providing me with a blueprint of how you imagine your song(s) sonically taking shape.
Without a rough version the mix can be taken in a thousand different directions away from what you imagine.

Save the rough mix to your desktop and name the file using this format: Artist Name_Song Name (Rough Mix)



STEP 2: Remove Unused Clips

Removing unused clips can greatly reduce the file size of your session, making it faster to upload.

Open the CLIPS pane to the right in Pro Tools and click the downward arrow button and choose Select > Unused.
Your unused clips should now be selected in the clips list.

Click the downward arrow button again and choose Clear.
In the pop-up window that appears click Remove.





STEP 3: Freeze All Tracks (Requires Pro Tools 12.4 or later. For older versions skip to STEP 4)

Freezing the individual tracks will retain any plugin fx you used in the rare occasion I don't have the same plugins.

Select all tracks except the Master track.

In the top menu click Track > Freeze



STEP 4: Save Session Copy

In the top menu click File > Save Session Copy In...

In the pop-up window make the following selections:
Format: Session (Latest)

Click OK. A window will pop-up to name and save your session. Navigate to your Desktop and save as:

(i.e.) Michael Jackson_Billie Jean (Mix Prep)

Click Save. Your session folder will be created on your desktop.

*I prefer to have both processed (wet) and unprocessed (dry) files,
but if you only have one type it's okay to just send those.

STEP 1: Create Folders For Wet & Dry Files

On your desktop create a new folder and name it using this format:
Artist Name_Song Name_TempoBPM_Mix Files
ex. Michael Jackson_Billie Jean_117bpm_Mix Files

Open the folder you just created and create two more folders inside it. Name one folder "Wet" and name the other one "Dry".
That's it for now. You can open your song in your DAW.



STEP 2: Export/Bounce A Stereo Rough Mix (WAV or MP3)

If you haven't bounced a rough mix of your song(s) now is the time to do so. The rough mix is very important.
It speeds up the process by providing me with a blueprint of how you imagine your song(s) sonically taking shape.

and making it a significantly longer to complete.

Name the file using this format: 
Artist Name_Song Name (Rough Mix)
ex. Michael Jackson_Billie Jean (Rough Mix)
Save the rough mix file to the first folder you created on your desktop in step 1. 




STEP 3: Export/Bounce Individual Wet Tracks (Audio with FX)

First, make sure you name each track.
Export the individual track files in your DAW, leaving any plugins and fx you have used engaged.

Keep the same sample rate and bit depth as the original session.
File format should be WAV
Save the files to the "Wet" folder you created in step 1.




STEP 4: 
Export/Bounce Individual Dry Tracks (Audio without FX)

First, make sure you name each track.
Export the individual track files in your DAW with all plugins and fx bypassed/disabled.

Keep the same sample rate and bit depth as the original session.
File format should be WAV
Save the files to the "Dry" folder you created in step 1.




STEP 5: Zip and Upload Files

On your desktop, the first folder you created in step 1 should now have inside it the rough mix along with audio files in the "Dry" and "Wet" folders.

Right-click the first created folder on the desktop from step 1 and select Compress (Mac) or  Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder (Win). 
You should now have a zip file on your desktop with the same name as the folder:
Artist Name_Song Name_TempoBPM_Mix Files.zip

Guidelines

IMPORTANT: For Mixing, I require that you send along a rough mix of your song in wav or mp3 format or a comparable commercially released song for reference that has similar sound elements and best represents what you envision. This is critical, as it gives me some idea as to which elements in the song are most important to you. It also limits confusion and speeds up the turnaround time. I will not mix your song without a rough mix/reference.

 

Payment

  • To get started, You will need to pay a 50% down payment of the total cost below. You will receive a link to PayPal for this deposit once I receive and approve that your files comply with my requirements. The remaining balance is due upon completion. I will not send you the final wav masters until I have received full payment. Once full payment is received you will promptly receive your masters. This is non-negotiable.

 

Project Turnaround Time

  • There may come a time when your selected turnaround date may not be able to be accommodated for various reasons. If this ever happens, I will contact you before I get started to see if we can possibly reschedule.

  • If I have not received your down payment in a timely manner or your files are not in compliance with my requirements in a timely manner, your turnaround date may be pushed back accordingly.

  • After I have reviewed your files, if there are any additional services needed outside the scope of mixing and mastering, I will recommend them and we can discuss it at that time.

 

Mix Notes

  • TitanTraxx will do unlimited revisions per song for up to 90 days after the project is complete and sent to the client for review. Additional revisions beyond 90 days will be billed at 20% of the total cost for each song per revision.

  • IMPORTANT: If you are in a group/band, please designate one (1) contact person for your project who will handle all communication about mixing notes. I will only accept notes from that person.

  • All mixing notes will be communicated via Fidbak.audio which is a site that allows you to leave remarks on the waveform at different locations in the song.

  • When I send a revision, you have 48 hours to reply back with notes to me or the mix will be considered final.

  • If you are having more than one (1) song mixed, I request that you give me notes for all songs at the same time. This helps me avoid confusion and stay organized resulting in fewer revisions. After I’ve finished the first single, please let me do the first mixes on all of the other songs before you send mix notes. This will ensure more accuracy and a faster turnaround time.

 

Delivery

  • I will deliver the master files for digital/streaming in 24 bit - 44.1 or 48 Khz sample rate wav format. For physical CDs 16 bit - 44.1 Khz sample rate wav format will be delivered. I will also deliver any additional formats you selected.

 

Miscellaneous

The Client shall procure that neither the Client nor any of the Client’s Personnel shall be held out as an agent of or pledge the credit of TitanTraxx.This Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between the parties and neither party shall be bound by any other statement or representation made to the other. No variation or amendment to this Agreement shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by the parties hereto. In the event that any part of this Agreement shall be held to be void voidable or otherwise unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction then the balance thereof shall remain in full force and effect.

This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state of Texas. Except for claims for injunctive or equitable relief or claims regarding intellectual property rights (which may be brought in any competent court without the posting of a bond), any dispute arising under this Agreement shall be finally settled in accordance with the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service, Inc. (“JAMS”) by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with such Rules. The arbitration shall take place in New Orleans, Louisiana, in the English language and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce this Agreement shall be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof.
