Rehearsal recording

I’ll record you as you rehearse. You’ll take away a CD with a recording of your rehearsal (up to 74 minutes). (Additional CD copies available for a additional fee).

Karaoke / backing tracks – you can sing or perform a solo instrument with your backing tracks. This will be processed, mixed and mastered in-house, and you’ll leave with your finished recordings on CD. (Again, additional copies available for an addition fee).

Recording only

If you prefer, you can record in the studio, then take away the unedited tracks on CD or DVD to mix and master at home or in another studio.

Full recording session

As above, but I’ll process, mix and master your recordings until you’re totally happy with the results.
