    Hello, I've been recording bass lines to send to my guitarist at his home studio to use on our final recordings for my bands EP. However when he listens to the recordings he says he's hearing alot of noise (like pink noise) and I know for sure there is none of that in the recordings I sent him, so it must be getting added to it somehow during the transfer by email, does anyone know how to fix this?

    No, noise is not being added by email attachments :rollno:

    Might be you didn't record at his DAW's set sample rate? It may be re-sampling when he imports it.

    You both Pick something and stick with it, maybe 48khz, 24bit.

    But you should be using Box or some other file sharing anyhow.

    Try downloading the file from your sent mail and see for yourself it it's corrupted.
    Chances are it isn't and it's a problem on your buddy's computer side.

    Theoretically, there might be some function in the mail transfer process that transcodes your audio file into something smaller.

    If that is the case, you can bypass it by zipping the audio with password protection. Then you'll know for sure if the 'noise' comes from the transfer or the source.

    I would like to do this but I am not exactly sure how.. I may also try a different audio program I'm only using Audacity at the moment (if you couldn't tell already, I'm not very experienced with recording haha)

    Why not just go to his house to record the tracks?

    Try

    Wetransfer.com

    It works great for sending individual tracks. And it's free.
