Start to Finish CD Recording Packages
With a major record company contract, two hundred
thousand dollars to spend on recording not counting the design and manufacturing
and executives overseeing all aspects of the project from beginning
to end you can figure on making a good CD. Not everyone is in this situation.
Package is based on using original or public domain songs. Using currently
released commercial songs will require you getting a mechanical license
for each song.
A more common scenario is the cost conscious
expending much effort and resources to make it as cheap as possible.
They record and package it themselves or work with amateur engineers
and low budget studios getting ineffective results. These folks can
pay the most! Your CD is your calling card. It is a representation of
what you do. Your first impression can make all the difference and you
never get a second chance to make a first impression.
When doing it on your own costs can soar and
the cost and results can be unpredictable and who knows when it will
get done if at all. If you are serious, being ready musically and financially,
here is a solution dramatically reducing the difficulties and cost of
making a quality CD.
This package is intended for a well-rehearsed
band that will be spending their time getting a perfected performance
rather than learning or experimenting with a new song. It will be expected
that your instruments are in good shape with new or good drum heads
& strings, no squeaks, buzzes, intonation is on, etc. The package deal
is designed to meet your goals, within a specific amount of time typically
recording on consecutive days. Sufficient time is allotted to give you
a preset real total cost. We can't offer unlimited time at a preset
price. (If you cannot finish recording in the specified package time
or want to re-record parts later it will be done at an additional hourly
rate. This package and preparation makes possible a fine product at
a set cost.
On the complete start to finish CD recording
package we co-produce with you to help insure it all gets done. The
band will make the artistic decisions choosing the songs and arrangements
they like best and spend most of their time getting a great performance.
After all parts are recorded satisfactorily we will all listen to a
rough mix and take mix notes and comments from band members. The largest
amount of time will be spent in mixing and mastering without the band
present. The band will review the final mix prior to mastering. One
change/remix adjustment of any of the songs on Complete Start to Finish
CD Recording Package is included free prior to mastering. If you want
to go beyond that then an additional hourly rate goes into effect.
If you want to be in complete control, working
on new songs and arrangements or do a lot of experimenting and writing
then working hourly is the way to go and you can determine your own
