Silent Way's Ultimate Track Sheet

Version 1.3 (6/8/2006). See below for download instructions.

This bionic session track sheet will make your audio recording session better... stronger... faster! One convenient file keeps all of your session info with your project when it gets backed up or handed off. The next person to work on your project will be grateful.

The Ultimate Track Sheet has easy pop-up menus to help you fill in session info: format type, sample rate, bit rate and clock source. Of course, like all track sheets it also has spaces to enter date, engineer, etc. It's easy, powerful, and only a dollar! Here's a screenshot of the top section:

Next, for each track, you can select the instrument, mic and preamp. You can select from handy pop-up menus with about 250 instruments, 60 mics, 25 mic pres and 25 converters, or type in anything you'd like. You can also add to the lists. Menus look like this:

What else? Well, you can sort the sheet by any column with one click. For example, when you see audio files on your drive, they're usually sorted by file/instrument name. Wouldn't it be nice to sort your track sheet to match, and then switch back on the fly to sort by track number? With one click, sort by: Track Number, Input (stage/snake channel number), Instrument, Microphone/DI, Mic Preamp, A/D Converter, or Filename.

That's just the beginning... The UTS does it all!

If you need to email a quick list of instruments to another engineer, you can copy-and-paste it, or send them the whole file. And it is formatted for printing too. As you dig deeper, you'll find many advanced timesaving functions to help your project move through production stages.

It just requires Microsoft Excel to run, and it works on Mac or PC. Silent Way's Ultimate Track Sheet only costs one US dollar. Such a deal!
