STEM MASTERING

Which Files Do I Have To Send?

We would need the Stems of your track (until maximum of 20 Bus/Groups Stems). All stems are required to line up correctly. All your processing including effects, reverb and delay must be ACTIVE as well as eq and compression. We also need your original mixdown and also a similar sounding track you like for have it as a reference. This could be a good example of what kind of stems we need.

  1. Kick Bus Stem
  2. High Perc Stem (Hi-Hats, Claps, Rides…)
  3. Low Perc Stem (Snares, Toms…)
  4. Rest of Percussions Stem
  5. Bass Bus Stem
  6. Synth Bus Stem
  7. Lead Bus Stem
  8. Keys/Melodies Bus Stem
  9. Fx Bus Stem
  10. Vocal Bus Stem
  • File Type : Wav
  • Bitrate : 24 bits/ 44,100 khz
  • Headroom : -6db / -8db

What Is The Turn Around Time?

Stem mastering is turned around within 7 days. If a certain date for your track is needed please let us know when sending your files and we will make sure your tracks are back to you mastered before your deadline.


When Do I Pay?

Payments must be made before work on your track begins. This ensures we as paid engineers, take the necessary time and care required to return you the very best masters. As soon as we get the payment done we will start to work on your request. Paypal is our preferred payment method but we also accept wire transfer.
