#5 ORGANIZE Create sub-folders for common instrument groupings such as DRUMS, PERCUSSION, BASS, ELECTRIC GUITARS, ACOUSTIC GUITARS, KEYBOARDS, LEAD VOCALS, BGVs, etc Organize the song by placing the tracks in their relevant folders and place those folders in the main song folder.#6: INCLUDE FULL INFORMATION: Please include with each song: tempo information, time signature, key signature, and any other applicable information.#4: RENAME and CLEARLY LABEL ALL TRACKS: Please make sure that each track is clearly labeled, simple labels are best.I need to know at a glance if "Jimi Outro" is a vocal, guitar or kazoo track... If you are creating files on a Mac using OSX, make sure that the file permissions are set to "read/write" As a last resort alternative to sending audio consolidated from bar zero, you can provide small audio files with the correct placement indicated in the file name (for example,"Guitar 2 bar 84").
And with 64-bit architecture, you’ll have the power you need to handle projects of any size.
In the "Bit Depth" drop down, select 16 bit with normal "POW-r #1 (Dithering)" dither (no noise shaped dither please!
) (or optionally 24bit but this is not required - it's not likely that any audio source you're using has a noise floor lower than -96d Bfs and the ONLY difference between 8, 16, and 24 bit audio is the noise floor - NOT the "resolution").
This information should be documented in a text file and placed in the song folder with the audio files.
#7: ZIP EACH SONG FOLDER: Please place all of the tracks and notes in a new folder for each song, clearly labeled, and include the tempo information in the folder name, then ZIP the folder (on OSX hold the "control" key while clicking the mouse pointer on the folder and select "Create Archive of.." from the drop down menu.
