Sending a Pro Tools Document - Some Doubts

Hello guys, it's not so long that I work with pro tools and I need your help. I must send a pro tools document to Canada for a voice recording. The sound engineer wrote me:

May I have the 3 songs delivered as follows:
ProTools session with all tempo maps and cues, containing stems of the following:
drums/percussion
bass
guitars
keys
reference vocals or other vocals


It's all clear but I don't understand what he means for "CUES". Does he refer to the songs metric or something related to the monitoring?

Thank you very much

Ask him! I'd interpret it as markers for verse/chorus etc, this is what "cues" means in SSL speak...but he might mean something different. Just clarify it - I'm sure he won't bite! most people would be glad you clarified it!

"Cues" == "Markers"

Curiously .. you would think a Protools engineer would know a session file contains them
(along with whatever "ruler" events are present in the session).

One thing to be very careful of when you send it to them is to do a "File->Save Copy In"
to a new folder and make sure that you check "Copy Audio"

That makes sure that everything is in one self-contained folder.
