What is the difference between online mixing and mastering?

Mixing is about blending all recorded elements into a cohesive track, comprising 90% of the process. It involves EQ, compression, gating, adding effects, and more. Mastering, the final 10%, enhances the final mix with compression, EQ, and limiting, ensuring a polished, radio-ready sound that unifies the album.

How do I export and send my stems for Mixing and Mastering?

Export vocal stems as dry mono audio files without effects, panning, or plugins. Instrumentation stems should be stereo, with levels and effects intact. Avoid drastic compression or EQ that may cause distortion. Label and name your stems to prevent delays. For bit depth/rate, select 16 or 24, matching or lowering the original recording bit rate. If using Pro Tools, send the session instead of stems.
