    IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO MASTER A TUNE OR GET IT MASTERED, WOULD YOU NEED A PROJECT FOLDER FROM THE ARTIST OR JUST WAV OR MP3 FILES????

    i have no idea, if some 1 could help, that would be great, thanks

    if the mixdown has been done well, then you would only need a final mixdown, preferably in wav form

    however make sure the artist leaves you about 4db headroom so you can master without worrying about clipping

    it is done from a wav do not send anybody your tune files.. no matter what bull shit they try to spout... if they insist then fuck em off because they are prob just trying to fuck you over or steel your shit..

    Most prefered is 16 bit wav peaking at -6db.
