How to prepare your mix for LANDR

There are a few factors to consider before uploading your track to LANDR. Here’s a few tips for getting the best results possible:

Format: To get the most out of LANDR, it’s best to upload your track in either a WAV or AIFF format.  (Please avoid MP3s)

Bit Depth / Sample Rate: When exporting/bouncing your final mix (also known as a premaster) it’s important to set the bit depth / sample rate of the file, the higher the better – 24bit/96kHz or higher is recommended. The lowest we recommend is 16bit/44.1kHz. Keep in mind your upload limit per track on the website is 1GB. Also be sure not to add any dithering – LANDR will do that for you.

Headroom:  This is really important. If you don’t leave headroom, your mastered track will sound distorted and fuzzy – and not in a cool way. We recommend -6dBFS. To do this, you’ll need to lower all of your faders so your master output peaks at -6dBFS.

Leave the master fader to us: Please don’t add any plug-ins or processing on the master fader of your digital recording device; we know it’s tempting - trust us - we won’t lead you astray. You can find more details on our blog.
