      (4)Bass and low-pitched instruments
      (5)Drums and Percussion
      This will make your files clearer to the buyers.

      Furthermore, please be sure to export your music channels in block formats, such that all files are of the same length as the original song, and please include any effects added in post-production. Finally, compress each sub-track into its respective zip file and you are ready to upload.
