Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Printing the music for delivery, part of Producing Music for Advertisements.
Since the director has approved our last revision, bouncing or printing the…approved music for delivery is the final step of the composition process.…At this stage we will print the final stereo mix of music in the format that the…client has requested. So, just to review that, let's pull back…up that Music Brief. And what we want to deliver is a music…only, so no voice-over, stereo mix without automation.…In addition to a music plus video reference delivered as 48k AIFF files with…a 2-pop at the head. And I'll explain what a 2-pop is and I'll…show you how to make that. Now, it says the dub mixer may request…discrete stems in the same format. They haven't yet.…
I'll talk a little bit about that. But let's start with the music only stereo…mix without automation. And so what I've done here is, instead of…an ox track, I have all of my music tracks dumping into an audio track here in Pro…Tools so that I can easily print that to a new track in real time inside this session.…This actually is really helpful when I need to print stems or individual tracks…
Note: While the composition of the music for this course takes place in Pro Tools, a majority of the content will be about the creative process and translates to almost any DAW.
