How To Prepare Your Stems For Mixing

  • All stems must be in WAV format

  • Make sure there is no limiting or compression on your master bus when bouncing stems

  • Make sure there is no clipping on your individual tracks or master output

  • Make sure any 'normalize' feature is turned off in your DAW when bouncing stems

  • I highly recommend sending your stems without reverb & delay so I can have more control over them

  • You should combine stems into groups of similar sounds (synths, leads, bass, percussion, etc.)

  • All stems must be named accordingly

  • Must compress all stems into a .zip folder

  • You can use the free service WeTransfer to send the .zip folder to bigzmastering@gmail.com

  • Never hesitate to contact me before you send your stems so we can make sure I have everything I need to make your track sound great!
