In the Dropbox folder there will be different file types. They are as below
Mp3 Files - These are not for release and are just for reference or personal use. Please do not release or distribute these files.
16 44.1 Wav Files - These are the CD Quality files
If you are getting a CD made (and are not getting a DDP Image made by me) these are the files you would use.
24 44.1 Wav files -These are the files that will be sent out to your different forms of digital distribution (DRM, Distrokid etc).
If any aggregators or distributors will not accept files of this quality - send them the 16 bit files instead
24 48k Wav Files
These are the files that will be sent out to use for any videos or visual content - Music videos, Sync deals etc
In this folder there will be A/B Side bounces and a PQ sheet with all the track info and timing on this.
Please submit all of this to your label/Cutting house
I like to be quite involved in the vinyl process to ensure that my masters are translate well to the format and to ensure you get a great sounding record
I may want to make recommendations on the cutting engineer you use to make sure the vinyl is as good as it can be and avoid issues in the cutting process.
And I will always like to hear an audio bounce of the test press to sign off before the record gets manufactured. Otherwise I can not guarantee the work that the cutting house has done will be satisfactory.
Again, please remember to download and back up your files.
The files will stay in the dropbox for around 6 months if you need to re access them - but please only use this if absolutely needed.
After 6 months they get moved to longtime online storage and there could be costs involved with retrieving old masters from long time storage.
