When sending your stems (individual tracks) to your mix or production engineer, follow a couple steps to save time and hassles.
1. If you have added any processing, look for a cue sheet or mix sheet export in your DAW and export all the track data. If there is none, Write It Down!
2. Turn OFF all processors and reset all gain structure to Zero
3. If your tracks even get Close to Zero DBFS, pull the faders down two db.
4. Be sure all tracks have the same start point.
5. Export Mono Stems
6. Do Not Normalize tracks
It really sucks when you and your client get a session built only to find you get to do it all over again...
