Well it will all depend on whether it’s speculative of a commission. But if speculative, then you’ll need to provide each track in a variety of different lengths. And you’ll need to provide stems as well.

Have a look at a music library site e.g. https://www.audionetwork.com/ and see what the common presentation formats are. The formats will be similar across all libraries.

If anyone is interested in what you are doing and requires something else, then they’ll get in touch.

But creating ‘stems’ is fundamental to any commercial interest.

Adam, it might be worth signing up to the Spitfire Audio Composer email list: https://composer.spitfireaudio.com/en
they have lots of articles about all manner of game / movie / soundtrack work.
Useful, and interesting, reading.
