•How far in advance should I book?
We recommend that you book your studio time one month in advance. We often have time available sooner so don't be afraid to ask what we have open.
•Can I see the studio prior to recording?
Of course! Just write us and we will let you know when we can get you in here.
•What are your rates?
Please write us to discuss our hourly rates. Every session is different therefore we usually customize rates depending on the project's duration and date flexibility.
•Can I book an hour or two?
We only accommodate sessions under 5 hours in duration to projects that have already spent time recording in the studio and just need to touch something up.
•Is a deposit necessary?
Yes. We charge the anticipated studio fee up front. The engineer fees will be billed at the end of the day or session. Any additional studio time used will be invoice at the end of the session. Deposits are refundable two weeks before the session begins.
•The piano, is it tuned & maintained?
The piano is tuned regularly and is well maintained so it might not need to be fine tuned prior to playing. If your project need the piano fine tuned to perfection for your session we require a 2 week heads-up so that we can have a technician in prior to the session.
•Can we bring in our own engineer?
Sure! We have enjoyed having engineers from all over the country work over here. In many cases, it would still be necessary to hire an assistant engineer at a nominal cost to ensure that the session runs smoothly. Please contact us for more details.
•How can I obtain a backup of my work?
Just bring in a hard drive and we can back everything up at the end of the session. Some projects are larger and some drives are slower and may need to back up overnight.
•Any tips before our coming into the studio?
If you're coming in to record multiple songs it'll help the engineer if you have a list of the song titles and bpm's if you plan to track to a metronome. be sure to check your equipment prior to your first day in the studio. no one wants to waste studio time chasing down a faulty cable, input jack, etc.
•Do i need to supply my own analog tape?
If you plan on recording to tape we do require clients to supply their own reels. let us know if you need help finding 2" or 1/4" reels.
•Can we get rough mixes along the way?
While we are fully capable of bouncing rough mixes, please know that rough mixes take time that will ultimately eats into your studio time. We can bounce rough mixes at a later date but we have to charge an additional fee for the time spent. If you do want rough mixes it's best to discuss this at the beginning of the day with your engineer so that time can be set aside at the end of the day for that.
