How to send audio to a professional studio to mix and master?

Question

I have been using Cakewalk for 4 years now (started with Sonar Platinum). My mixing skills (or lack thereof) are amateur at best. I would like to send the Cakewalk audio to a professional studio to see how their mixing and mastering turns out. How do I do that?

Everything is in audio, no MIDI, all recorded with a click to make use of the grid and snap. 

Also, I used Melodyne ARA region effect for pitch correction on the vocals. 

When sending the audio to the pro- studio, do I just copy the files from the Audio folder in the project folder to a flash drive? And do I copy the Melodyne folder as well? Is it really that easy? 

My assumption is the studio will not have Cakewalk but some other software. Will the Melodyne pitch corrected vocals audio work for the studio if they do not use Cakewalk?

Best ask the studio what they want.

You will likely need to export all the tracks out of the project.

You should apply Region FX before export.

Here is another stupid question from me - by “apply Region FX before export” do you mean render Region FX? Which I have done that on the Melodyne pitch corrected vocals.

Yes

Rendering applies the Melodyne corrections and removes the plug-in from the clip(s).
