BANDS - SUBMISSION GUIDELINES - DEADLINE: JULY
If you're sending in a track for consideration,
please adhere to the following guidelines from our Mastering
you have access to an audio editor, such as Sound Forge,
Cool Edit Pro, or WaveLab, please check each track to
make sure that it never reaches 0 dB. If it does, your
mixdown is clipped, which means it was mixed down at
too high a volume. For hard disk recording systems such
as Pro Tools, Cubase, or Digital Performer, simply lower
the master fader and re-render (export).
Please render your files as 24-bit, even if you recorded
at 16-bit. Mastering a 24-bit source yields a much better
result than a 16-bit source possibly can. This cannot
be overstated! If there is absolutely no way to provide
me with 24-bit files, your 16-bit source needs to be
properly dithered. If you need help, just let us know
and our mastering engineer walk you through each step.
Do not EQ, compress, limit, dither, or normalize your
mixes. Just to be clear, I'm only referring to the 2-track
stereo mixdown. Feel free to EQ and compress individual
tracks to taste, but once you mix those tracks together
into a single stereo file, please don't touch it.
use any samples from The Fixx or any other source that
you don't have permission or purchased rights to. Thanks.
