How do you deliver your drafts, parts or complete work to the final stage in making use of the music - such as mixing into video, mounting onto mag track or simply mastering for a CD album?
I often use my webserver for this, where the people can download the stuff directly - both partly finished drafts and also the finished material. In other cases I usually deliver it on DVD or CD, through mail or directly in their hand. As for drafts the server is great. I just mount a draft mix onto the video part I'm working on atm and publish a "web-quality" video file on the server and the guys watch it while on the phone with me. Not so personal, but very efficient.
For theater or movie use I usually deliver things split up into very small parts, such as instrument groups or even single instruments sometimes if mixing is going to be done by another guy. Also, the different parts are divided into "slices" where each sequence of music is separated from the next one and the one that came before. Small parts is usually favoured by the other guys since it gives them more freedom in using it - you know, fading in/out, taking out the drums if they like that better or mixing the drums in low if it gets in the way of the dialogue or background sounds .. etc.
The ways of delivery varies of course. One common factor for me is wav 24 bit 48 khz. Thinking of this made me curious to how you guys deliver your stuff? Anybody still into DAT for example?
