Your cues are written, approved, and recorded, and now it’s time to deliver them to the music mix, video game implementation, or the final dub mix. It’s time to create stems! There are many questions to consider: How do you set your session up to easily bounce stems at the correct levels? What instruments should you group together? How do you keep all your stems organized and synced? 

We will be discussing these topics among others, and taking your questions in the livestream chat.
