Stem Mastering? When mastering music productions, it can be helpful to render the individual tracks (also called "tracks" or "channels") as so-called "stem." Stems are groups of tracks that can be edited together for greater control over the mix.
There are three ways to create stems:
Grouping in the DAW: Most digital audio workstations (DAWs) allow you to group tracks. For example, all guitar, vocal, or percussion tracks can be grouped. The group can then be rendered as a stem using the DAW's export function by selecting only the grouped track.
Using the Solo function: Another option is to use the DAW's solo function to render only the desired tracks as the stem. This means you mute all other tracks and solo and render only the selected tracks.
Using the Mute Function: Unlike the Solo function, you can also use the Mute function to mute individual tracks. This way, you can mute unwanted tracks and render only the tracks you want.
Grouping similar instrument parts means that each stem should contain only one type of instrument or group of instruments. For example, you might have one stem for Kick and another for Drums, Bass, Vocals, FX, Synth, etc.
No, it is recommended that you do not turn off your automation and effects when sending your files for stem mastering. These effects and automation are essential to your mix and can help the mastering engineer understand your desired sound. But I will let you know if something needs to be corrected and should be changed.
Set -3 / -6 DB as the maximum loudness target when mixing your music. Avoid sending audio tracks with more than 0 dB to avoid clipping artifacts. Creating maximum volume levels is the mastering engineer's job.
Use your DAW or digital audio workstation to export each stem as a separate audio file, either WAV or AIFF, with a minimum bit depth of 24-bit or 32-bit and a sample rate of 44.1kHz or higher.
Labeling each stem file clearly will help the mastering engineer know what each file contains, making the mastering process smoother and more efficient.
Please do not normalize the individual audio tracks, to let the song sound like your original song idea.
You will be asked to provide a download link for the sound files during the order process. I recommend using WeTransfer, Filemail, Send-anywhere or Terashare. You can also send your files directly to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, including the mixed version of your song will allow the mastering engineer to compare your mix against their mastered version.
If you already have songs with the sound or feel you want for your song, please send them along with your tracks. This will help me to understand what you want for your song and to mix and master it accordingly.
The mastering process typically takes 3-5 days. After the mastering engineer completes the process, you will receive your enhanced and mastered song. You can then communicate and check if you are 100% satisfied with the result. If there is anything you would like to change, you have unlimited revisions until you are satisfied.
To avoid problems, import your rendered tracks into a new DAW session before sending them. Compare and listen to make sure everything sounds right. This way, you can be sure there are no clipping, timing, or groove issues before submitting the tracks.
You have unlimited revisions until you are satisfied with the song mix. There is no additional charge for submitting new tracks.
Stem mastering is a technique that offers more in-depth and fine-tuning options to improve your mix. It involves sending up to 6 stems, or grouped tracks such as drums, bass, synths, or vocals, to a mastering engineer who works on each stem separately.
The mastering process adds punch and power to the low frequencies while balancing and adding air to the highs, resulting in a warm, analog character to all elements of your song.
Stem mastering is the ultimate solution to avoid a weak mix with unbalanced bass, kick, and muddy mids. It is important to avoid making compromises during the mastering process, as they can lead to these issues.
For those who strive for top-notch outcomes in music production, stem mastering and stem mixing reign supreme over stereo mastering. By employing up to six stereo stems or instrument tracks, these techniques provide a more extensive perspective of the mix, which ultimately leads to an enhanced end product.
Opt for stem mastering to achieve optimal sound quality for your music. With stem mastering, you can trust that your mix will be handled with utmost care and attention, leading to a polished, top-notch end result.
