How to send your audio files
Supply continuous audio files
Prepare a single continuous stereo audio file of your tracks in the correct order for each side of the record. These files should include appropriate gaps between the track (normally about 3 to 4 seconds).
We will not alter this audio in any way, and the lacquer will be cut directly from the supplied continuous files.
Along with the audio files, provide a list of Visual Track Marker points (known as VTMs for short). These are the points at which the lacquer and records will be marked to indicate the start of a track, and make it easier for the listener to skip to the start of a particular song on the record.
For example, if your Side A continuous file consists of 4 tracks with the following lengths; 1.30min / 4 sec gap / 2.45 / 4 sec gap / 3.30 / 4 sec gap / 2.30, then the VTM list should read as follows:
Provide individual tracks
We can accept individual song files and tracks. We’ll set up and create the continuous audio files and VTM points.
The new audio files will be emailed back to check and approve. There is a cost of £35+vat for the service.
