What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?

Share

Ask friends and other musicians if they have used the studio or if they know anyone who has. Personal recommendations are a good start as musicians will not promote a studio who did an unsatisfactory job on their recordings. If someone has used the studio you’re interested in, ask if you can listen to the recordings they produced.

Overall, you are looking for a studio to suit your needs: rates within your budget, services of an experienced sound engineer, an excellent reputation for their sound quality and professionalism and helpful, friendly staff that will make your recording experience worthwhile and productive.

What kind of questions do customers ask you?

Share

How long will I need in the studio?

The professionalism of the band members and the sound engineer will also affect how much gets done in a day.

The number of days you need will ultimately depend on how many songs you want to record. Remember that recording and mixing always takes a lot longer than you imagine, so make sure to budget sufficiently for this.

A full album can take anywhere up to 14 full days studio time with approximately half of this time being spent on the mix down. For this reason, you as a band must be as perfect as possible with regard to your musicianship. Otherwise, you may end up paying for extra days to finish the mixing stage.

Do you know any Professional Photographers?

Share

Yes! We have strategic partners that provide the highest level of professionalism to our client referrals.

Do you offer any service after finishing the work?

Share

File Archive. For an annual fee of only $25, we will store your master recordings on a safe and secure server.

It is not uncommon to get a call from a customer telling us that their master recordings got lost or damaged.

It is very reassuring to know that you never have to spend thousands of dollars re-recording your project.
