sup FP, got a question on tracking out beats.
When I sell an exclusive beat, i track out each track as a .wav file and give to customer. However when tracking out a 4-5 minute song with anywhere from 15-30 tracks, the file size can become almost 1 GB or more after compressing. This takes a long time for the customer to download and even longer for the upload.
My question is to save time and file size, would it be kool instead of tracking out each track for the entire 4-5 minutes off the song, to just track out say 16 bars of each track. This way the 16 bar wav.file can still be imported into any DAW and then copied, moved or edited in any way.
Let me know what you guys think and how you all are tracking out beats.
