1. How can I
music to you?
A. The fastest way is to send an
sub mix by email., or, via theuploadpage. IMPORTANT:
Start your mix from the "zero mark" of your
session! That way it
will be easy to sync the
percussion files later. Just drop them at the same point (the
0:00:00) because all files will be consolidated. Another option is to
send a 2 bar click before the start of the music. I'll keep them on my
files, so you can align them with your session and the percussion
tracks will automatically aligned also. And... a good way for me
to understand your music, is
to have different sub mixes.
One with all your rhythmic ideas
in it (guide audio tracks, plus midi or loops) to be
replaced for Live Percussion. And a second one without
parts, to be used
as a basic track for the recording session. If you have a chart for the
song, it will help as well. It can be a logic,
pdf, finale, or an image file (jpg, gif, pict...) Another 2
options: 1.Make your session
available online, so we can download them using FTP.
2.Send your files (MP3 or any other format)
there a better way to mix the
song submitted to you? A. Yes
! There is ! If you can mix the drum parts (or
will stay on the song, panned all the way to the Right,
and the rest of the instruments panned to
all the way the Left, it will give a little more control of what I
hear during the recording process. Also, if you have
a click recorded on the song, please mute it after the count
off, or, send it separately, either by itself , or on the "guide"
