Your mixed, exported or bounced audio files should have a few seconds gap (around 1 bar) at the start and end of your song. If you have the choice please do not send mixes with fade outs. If this is what you want it can be added at the mastering stage. Export your files to a 24 bit stereo interleaved WAV or AIFF file. Do not add any dithering and try not to over compress or EQ your mix buss. Mix buss compression can be an important tool in creating the right "feel" for you mix or helping "glue" the mix together but don't over do it, 2 to 3dB gain reduction max! If you need help or advice with this please feel free to contact us HERE
. Also, assuming we have not done your mix for you please make sure that any peaks in the song do not exceed -6dBFS (Absolute maximum -3dBFS). Don't worry if your mix sounds quiet when compared to commercial releases, concentrate on a great mix. Our mastering process with look after the final level for you. Again please contact us if you need any advice.
