What I need from you...

After we've agreed to work together, please send the song as a stereo mix in a wav or mp3. We can do this through Dropbox or WeSendIt if the file is too large for email.

 

I will also need an email that includes the tempo, sample/bit rate, and a description with any references you may want to include as a reference point for my approach to your music.

 

Once I have received your track (as a single stereo mix in mp3/wav form), I will then send up to 3 full passes back to you to confirm parts, drum sounds, etc. After confirmation, payment is due. I will do 2 full and final takes and send individual stems, clearly marked, in wav form.

 

Please let me know if you also want any percussion overdubs and we can discuss.

Let's work together
