How to Save
Money, by Saving Time
Have your material as well organised as possible before even
thinking about walking into a studio.
The clearer the picture of what you want a song to sound like, the
quicker it can be achieved and the less it will cost you in studio
For Music Projects
Things worth thinking about.
Is the song be an album track or are you aiming at radio airplay?
How long is the song?
Is it too long or too short?
Do you want harmonies? If so where and which harmony parts.
Does the arrangement work or could it be trimmed down or extended
for a better result?
Does it really need a guitar solo or would keyboards be better? Is
the solo to long/short?
Does the feel work? etc.
Careful consideration of these things beforehand can help save
valuable recording studio time and lead to a much better end result.
As well as music, we also record a lot of voice over artists
including, guided meditations, self help, sales and instructional
CDs. This includes audio production for Hay House.
