The number of instrument settings refer to the number of newly custom created patches for any native or 3rd party instruments (Exs24 Operator, Sylenth etc). This also includes any channel processing for that instrument.
The number of music-based midi files. This number does not reflect midi files that trigger drum patterns.
This refers to the number of channels that have any kind of signal processing. This could mean either standard .wav or .aiff processing or a bus or group of channels that have been merged and processed. Generally, it's any audio other than a direct virtual instrument, sends or master processing.
The number of sends for custom effects like reverbs, delays, stereo spreaders, exciters etc.
This refers to whether there is bespoke Mastering done on the mix bus of this template. This isn't meant to replace a mastering engineer but to give you a good idea how to get your track up to a commercial level.
This refers to whether we used any third party plugins or instruments or if only native-DAW instruments and plugins were used. In most cases, we only use native. However, there may be special occasions where we use 3rd party. All third party plugins will be listed here as well as on the product description page.
- None -Only Native plugins Used
What are Production Notes?
These notes that cover, at a high-level, not only the how but the why things were done. This helps the engineer understand the trick but also gives context. We try to include these in as many templates as we can but there may be times where the engineer that provides the file is not able to produce notes due to time restrictions.
This featured indicates that this template's arrangement has been standardized to work with any Logic Element, Remix Stem or any other Standardized template in our marketplace. We standardize the arrangement in the following way:
Intro = bar 1 to bar 33
First break = bar 33 to bar 49
1st chorus/bridge = bar 49 to bar 97
second break = bar 97 to bar 129
2nd chorus/bridge bar 129 to bar 161
Outro = bar 161 to bar 193
