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. DO NOT  leave the click track in this mix. We can do this through Google Drive or DropBox/ WeSendIt if the file is too large for email.

 

In this email please include the tempo 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. We can also do  a Zoom meeting to listen to play back and tie up any loose ends. confirmation, payment is due. I will do the full and final takes and send individual stems, clearly marked, in wav form either flat or mixed based on our previous decision..

 

Please let me know if you also want any percussion overdubs and we can discuss. I usually include a few anyway!

Let's work together

Thanks for contacting me! I will get back to you as soon as I am able.
