How Much Time Does It Take To Record A Song?2019-10-09T18:12:33+00:00

As a rough guide, the important recording of a fundamental 3-ish minute song by a four piece band (taking account of setting-up and sound-checking; however, discounting added instrumental parts/harmony vocals etc.) would take at minimum of 6-8 hours using the overdub technique and at least 3-4 hours using the live approach.

What Is The Length Of Time To Record And Mix A Song?2019-10-09T18:11:38+00:00

The typical time for mixing a major, or large independent record is 2 to 3 weeks. Yet it almost ALWAYS relies on the budget as well. Normally, a day perhaps a little more per song. If vocal adjusting and editing is needed then add a few days to that as well (for the whole record).

Do you need to write your own music to be able to go into the studio and record?2019-01-23T19:09:16+00:00

Well, you don’t have to write your own music to record music, but it sure helps a lot if you can write great songs. The music business is driven by them. If you’re a great singer/entertainer, there are many avenues to get songs to record ( i.e. publishers and songwriters) but finding hits is not an easy feat so if you can write them yourself and record your own music, the road becomes a little easier… emphasis on “a little”.

Do you provide studio musicians when recording? If so, what are the costs?2019-01-23T19:16:37+00:00

Yes, we have a pool of talented recording musicians that we’ve been working with for many years. Each player can range from 100-150 dollars per song. Lee plays many instruments, keyboards primarily, and doesn’t charge extra for recording those music tracks.

What is involved in a typical music recording session?2019-01-23T19:17:23+00:00

There is no “typical” music recording session. They are all different depending on what a particular artist might need. It would also depend on what part of the process you are involved in with respect to recording music tracks.

What is the difference between a Demo, an EP and an Album?2019-01-23T19:18:16+00:00

Well that question could have a few different answers but I’ll try to explain the traditional definitions. Back in the day when the album was king, you could get about 46 minutes on an album, maybe 23 minutes per side “max” because of the physical limitations of vinyl. With the advent of the CD format, you could get a lot more material on an “album” although most record companies wouldn’t allow this because it would have cut into profits significantly. A music album today? I guess it’s whatever collection of songs someone chooses to call an album.

 

An EP these days it seems can contain as little as 3 songs but would usually have at least five. The term doesn’t really make any sense in a streaming, download driven marketplace other than for marketing purposes.

 

A demo is a very broad term and hard to quantify anymore because there are so many demos being released as “MASTERS”. It use to have to do with unions and signatory agreements with labels but there are so many non union music recordings released these days that that definition of a “demo” seems to be fading away, in my opinion.

 

There are also demos for artists, producers, labels and any other entity one may try to get to publish their music. Generally speaking, these would be music recordings done much cheaper and quicker than master recordings for mass consumption; although, I’ve heard many publishing demos that sound like “full blown” records. Knowing who you’re pitching demos to has a lot to do with how far into the production process these recordings should be taken.

 

I guess a book could be written on it but I’d rather write a song.
