    Here's the latest word... the guidelines are essentially done. The committee members are proofreading them for mistakes, etc.

    It's about 40 pages, so it's a lot of work.

    Should be soon.

    Thnx for your continued interest.

    They're done + in the hands of NARAS. They're proofing it. Should be soon.

    But as I said in the OP, the PT guidelines are near identical. The DAW guidelines are simply reworded to be more DAW universal.

    So, if ya want the content... simply download the PT guidelines.

    LE + SE... not sure I understand what you mean. Have you read the PT guidelines?

    They're already LE or host based DAW friendly. The guidelines in no way favor TDM or card based systems.

    Ahh.... you mean a 2 pager instead of a 36 (!!) pager.

    The answer is yes. AND it also exists already.

    Here's the link to PT guidelines short form.

    Hi,

    just saw this by accident : The DAW-Guidelines are available for download now at the Grammy-website.

    Thanks Charles and the other guys involved for doing this!


    Best,

    Marco.

    Thanks, tannoy!

    I looked earlier today + they weren't up.

    And a big THANK YOU to all the contributors: Chuck Ainlay, Carlos Alvarez, Judson Coplan (Apple), Vincent di Pasquale, Frank Filipetti, Trevor Fletcher (Criteria/Hit Factory), Scott Garrigus, Gil Gowing (Digidesign), Don Gunn, Bob Hunt (Apple), Jim Morris, Tom Morris, Roger Nichols, Greg Ondo (Steinberg), David Rosenthal, Eric Schilling, Ron Taylor, Steve Thomas (Cakewalk), Alex Westner (Cakewalk).


    Here are the DAW Guidelines for Music Production:

    Full Version (PDF)

    Short Version (PDF)


    A lot of work + research went into creating these guidelines + making them useful + applicable to nearly all daws.

    They're specifically designed to apply to Cubase, Digital Performer, Logic, Nuendo, Pro Tools, + Sonar. But they should also apply to nearly every daw out there.

    Please let me know if something in them doesn't make sense with your platform.

    Thank you for downloading them.

    We hope they help you as much as they've helped all of us who use them.

    Hi Charles,

    Great work on the guidelines!

    I was wondering though, are there any guidelines concerning track naming? You know, kick, snare, guitar, reverb, etc.) Everybody seems to do it different.

    There must be a way that would suit every DAW user out there?

    Hope this isn't a lame question, it being my first post and all.


    Cheers,
    Rainier

    No there aren't. One of our guiding principles was to leave room for personal working style.

    As you can see from the guidelines in a number of places we do request that the tracks be labeled clearly, etc. But we felt that what some1 should actually call their tracks should be left up to them.
