What is the most suitable bit rate to record my vocals?Record your vocals at 24 bit or higher for best quality. The session sample rates must be 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz. And keep your recordings around -3dB.

Beats and instrumentals should be in stereo files and keep the levels and effects as it is. Make sure the files don't cause any distortion and clipping, make sure to label and name your stems accordingly to avoid any delays. All files should be exported from the same starting point of the project 0:00. So they will be fully synced and lined up properly.

Why should I have my song mastered?Whether you plan to release your music on the radio, CD, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Youtube Music, Tidal, Deezer or publishing anywhere on the web, mastering ensures that your music plays back properly in every format and it's a vital part of musical success.
What is mixing?Let's say you made some music, and you sang, now it’s time to make that arrangement feel like a song, rather than a loose affiliation of parts and tracks. This is where the mixing engineer comes in. It’s their job to balance all the tracks and do whatever it takes to make them feel like a solid, cohesive song. With tools like EQ, compression, panning, and reverb at their disposal, mix engineers reduce clashes between instruments, tighten grooves, and emphasize important song elements. Azim will be they adding all sorts of crazy effects when necessary—reverb, delay, modulation, pitch fx, anything that serves the material.
What Is Mastering?Mastering is the final step of the production process. After a song has been recorded and mixed, the mastering engineer balances the sonic elements and optimizes the track for playback on a variety of systems and formats. This final version of the track is known as the "master recording" and is what's uploaded to streaming services. It's also the mastering engineer's job to make sure your track sounds good no matter what system it's being played on—from tiny speakers in laptops and cellphones to massive sound systems. Mastering is also the final stage of quality control for your music. It's the last chance to make sure there are no errors or technical issues with your track before releasing it to the world. That's why mastering is such a crucial step in the production process.
What's the Difference Between Mixing and Mastering?Mixing focuses on enhancing each of the individual tracks in a session and combining them into one cohesive mix. Each of the elements should be clearly audible, and work together with the other elements to create a balanced sound. Mastering focuses on enhancing the final mix and preparing it for distribution. Instead of working with multiple tracks, you work with the final "two-track" mix to add the finishing touches and make it sound as good as possible—kind of like a coat of polish after a good cleaning.
