Session documentation

By April 1, 2008Mixing Tips And Tricks

When mixing your own material or delivering files to a mixing engineer it is helpful to make sure that your sessions are logically organized and that tracks and audio files are named correctly.¬† This ensures that you can concentrate on the creative side of a project rather than trying to figure out what track “Audio 02” is for example.

The Producers and Engineers wing of the Grammy Foundation deserve some thanks as they have created an in-depth set of universal guidelines which cover everything from logical session naming conventions through to printable session documentation sheets and labels.

By following these guidelines you can ensure that not only will you be able to revisit a project at a later date and know exactly what is happening in the session, but that someone else can pick and and continue working on your project without problems.
