What is a Trackout?
A Trackout includes every single individual sound in an instrumental as
its own separate file. You receive a .zip file that has each instrument’s
recording so you can have better control of your final mix. If our song
has a guitar, piano, kick drum, snare drum, hi-hat, strings, and bass, then
you would receive individual recordings of each instrument in your
Trackout. You would have 7 different audio files, all of the same length
and each include their perspective sound.
The Trackout is used so your final song can sound it’s best. If you
wanted to remove one instrument from your final song you can with
Trackouts. If you wanted to change the volume of one of the instruments
or remove one you could. Mainly it is so your song will be able to be mixed
properly. You place each file in an individual track in your DAW and then you
can mix your song and have it sounding professional.
Is a Trackout necessary?
The best way to have a professional sounding mix is to use track outs. They are
used in a professional setting when recording. It is important for the engineer
to have control over every detail of the instrumental. When your mixing your
song you may need to turn down a guitar 2db, or even EQ the bass in your song
so it is best to have a trackout. If you are having trouble mixing your song our
engineers at Songwriter Vault can mix it for you.
