Stem Mixing & Mastering
There are lots of great reasons to start using stems when mixing your tracks, but perhaps the most compelling is that it simply makes sessions easier to manage. Whether you’re mixing, mastering, remixing, or overdubbing, stems are a great way to save time in the studio.
STEM MIXING & MASTERING:
Please supply full bandwidth 24/32 bit stereo files of identical length/duration. Export your stems from exactly from the same time code position in your DAW timeline so they will synchronize when we put them into our DAW. This will invariably involve setting left and right locators when you bounce/export your files. When preparing your files, consider that ideal stems should combine/sum in your DAW and sound virtually identical to the stereo mixdown when combined and played together.
