How It Works
Send us your song or project
We will call you as soon as we hear from you and request that you send us by email or mail a work-tape of your song and a copy of the lyrics. This can be just you and a guitar or piano singing the melody or just you singing a cappella. You DON’T have to be a good singer; we just need to hear the song so that we can chart it for the musicians.
Then we schedule a pre-production meeting with you and the pre-production producer who will be charting your song and communicating unique ideas for the song to the musicians.
Once we get the work-tape we will choose a session date to record your song (we do one to two sessions every week) and send you a contract for you to read and electronically sign. Once we get your contract back, we will take your deposit (50% of total bill). We take cash, check and all major credit cards including Paypal. We can take non-cash payment over the phone.
Once we get your work-tape and lyrics, we will chart it, and the session leader (the musician charting your song) will give you a call and go over production ideas. During the pre-production meeting, we’ll explore all possible options for your project with you and notate all of that on the chart. This step is very important, so please make sure to communicate ALL of your ideas to the session producer.
You will choose what vocalist you want to sing your song. If you need help with this, we will suggest the vocalist(s) that we think would sound best.
We will track the main instruments of your song in the next available tracking session. This step is where all the elements of your song come together based on the pre-production meeting. If you require vocals to be added to your project, this is where your singer will come into the studio. Sometimes singers aren’t available to sing the day of tracking, so we will schedule the vocals at the singer’s earliest convenience.
All of these raw element go to mix at this point. Once your song is mixed, we will send you the mixed track for you to review. If you have any changes you would like to make to the mix, we remix it at no additional cost to you.
Once you are satisfied with your song, we collect the other half of your payment and send you a high-quality file of your song via CD in the mail or via our secure FTP server.
Included in every package:
- Production mix to radio standards

We do not time-limit or charge by the hour these types of sessions. It is our belief that creativity will flow with a healthy exchange of ideas.
