Creating Stems

A note from Brian:

“To mix your track I require the unprocessed raw audio from your original session. This is basically the audio recorded from each microphone, synth and sound module in the original session. Every single audio file has to be the same length, so when I load it into Protools all the different tracks are in time with each other. **Using time stamping and the OMF protocol can lead to issues at the importing stage**

I use Pro Tools as my “tape” for mixing and mastering.

Here are some videos on how to create audio stems from some different pro-audio applications. Professor Google has numerous videos similar to these, and there are several ways to capture the raw audio. As long as they are all the same length and have no processing applied then there will be no problems. Please download my ‘Mixing Information Sheet’ available next to the links at the top of the page. Pass this to the recording engineer and kindly ask him to submit along with the audio.
