When exporting your tracks for mastering, please give us the files as they were created. DO NOT DO ANY SAMPLE RATE conversion, as this can affect the overall sound quality of your mastering process. If you arranged 44.1/16 Bit and another at 48k/24Bit, i.e., give us each file as it was created. We will handle the files and process them accordingly for optimum quality. Note: In this day and age, we encourage all producers, mixers, and content creators to ideally work at 24Bit at the recording & mixing stages of production.
