PROCEDURE FOR STEM CREATION
First export your final stereo mix as you would normally, at the same sampling rate as your session. If there is anything on the master chain. You can leave these on as this will give us a reference point as to how the mix was sounding at your end.
Create a folder on your hard drive and label it with the name of the song. Name the file ‘Your Song Name.wav’ and put it into the folder.
REMOVE ALL MASTER CHAIN PROCESSING.
Then without changing any levels, plug-ins, automation or anything else create your stems as per the below instructions and add them into the folder with the bounce of your full mix.
DON’T CHANGE ANY ASPECT OF YOUR MIX
Start the song at the exact same place at the beginning of the song. All stems should start from 00`00`00`00 irrespective of where the audio starts. So even if you have one stem where a noise plays on the last beat of the song, we would want the whole song in silence before that point. Basically, we should be able to sync all the stems you provide us with to 00’00’00 and it should sound correct.
CHECK YOUR STEMS
Load them into a new mix session. The combined separations should sound the same as your stereo mix file, but just more open and less compressed. Make sure your DAW does NOT normalise the stems when you export.
The better you like your stereo mix, the fewer stems you need. More concerns about your mix, make a greater number of stems.
Do NOT change the sampling rate from the original mix session! If your system is 48k, make 48k-24 bit files. If your system is 44.1k, make 44.1k-24 bit files, etc.
