Rates and Services
STUDIO 92 HOUSE RULES
RECORDING SCHEDULE & TIME
1. Recording sessions start at the time you scheduled your session. In example, if you scheduled your recording session at 7:00pm; the rate you paid will apply starting at 7:00pm. You will be charged for that recording session starting at 7:00pm.
2. In the event you have to cancel a recording session or other scheduled service, you will be responsible for 100 % of cost of services scheduled if cancellation occurs within 24 hours of the scheduled recording session or service. You must give us at least one day notice that you will have to cancel or re-schedule.
3. If no one is scheduled after you, such as at the end of the day or on weekends, you may continue up to a total of 8 hours of recording per day. Keep in mind performers and engineers may become fatigued during long sessions, which could affect the quality of your work.
RECORDING MEDIA & STORAGE
1. It is necessary for every client to provide for digital audio file storage. Bring your own external hard drive(s) to each recording session.
2. After completion of a project, Studio 92 deletes all of its files to save room on hard drives for other projects, but offers transfer to an external hard drive if provided by the client. We recommend that all clients have their work backed up.
3. We advise you to take your hard drives with you upon departure from the studio.
4. In this age of digital recording, audio file and session file usage and storage have become major issues for studios and clients. Due to the unreliable nature of this digital world, Studio 92 will not guarantee the safe use or storage of digital audio files. We strive to do our best with audio file manipulation and storage, but there are many things out of our control. For example there are often "bugs" in operating systems and attendant software; hardware componets that suddenly become defective in hard drive power supplies and IC boards; glitches in the operations of complex computer functions, etc., that cause from time to time losses in data. Although such losses are infrequent, Studio accepts no liability for the usage or storage of any data or audio files.
ACCESS TO STUDIO & GUESTS
Studio does not allow individuals who are not involved with the actual recording to be in the studio. This includes friends, fans, girlfriends, pets etc. unless they are an important part of the recording. They can create distraction causing slower production and higher costs to the client.
1. The studio conference room is available for your convenience at no additional charge. The conference room has a conference table with eight leather massage chairs, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, TV, DVD player and game consoles.
2. You may bring your own food and beverages and store them in the refrigerator. You may order food to be delivered in which you must pay for directly. Studio accepts no liability for the usage or storage of any food or drinks.
3. Food and drink must be kept away from equipment racks, console and other music studio equipment.
1. Please respect our engineers, our building, and our time.
2. Expect to work hard. If you have recorded before, you already know how much hard work is involved. Recording is very rewarding and fun, but is also an incredible amount of work.
3. When you book time at Studio 92 you can do whatever you want with that time. Below are some suggestions, so you can make the most of your recording session/time:
- Know which songs you want to record (and preferably the order you want to record them in as well).
- Bring a list of the names of the songs you intend to record.
- Have the arrangement of each song figured out.
- Rehearse for the session. Know your parts cold. Studio time is expensive, but rehearsal time is not. Rehearse ahead of time before you get to the studio.
- Show up on time - make sure you get every minute you pay for.
- Don't bring your children, family and friends to watch you record; it's a bad idea. You're paying for this time and it should be considered work. In our experience, children, family and friends tend to be distracting to the band as well as the engineer. We suggest you bring a camera or a camcorder instead to document your recording session. It's a great way to document the process and you can watch it with your family and friends later. Video diaries are also a great and easy addition to your finished cd.
Preparing for your studio time: 5 Tips To Help Insure Your Success
Recording studio time is expensive, whoever's doing the work behind the computer is putting in valuable time. Making the most of the time you've got in the studio is really, really important.
Here's 5 tips to really keep in mind as you get ready to enter the studio, especially if you're a first-timer. Keep in mind, these all come from experience -- I've been there as an artist, and as an engineer, and everything I'm telling you comes from seeing it happen!
1. Have Your Songs Prepared.
This one goes without saying, but you'd be surprised. You should be able to play through every song you plan on recording, and play through it well. Time spent working out arrangements in the studio is valuable time you can be using to add overdubs and other little things to make your songs shine!
2. Hangovers Are Bad.
Sure, getting into the studio is a great time, and it's definitely cause for celebration, especially if it's your first album. But trust me on this one: lay off the alcohol, drugs, and late-night partying before getting into the studio. A lot of younger artists are more into the "scene" than they are making the actual record, and that's unfortunate. And remember, always respect studio house rules on booze.
Come to the studio well-rested and ready to work. If you're a singer, rest your voice, drink plenty of water (including room-temperature water when you're in the studio -- ice is bad for vocal cords!).
3. Stay focused.
Don't bring individuals who are not involved with the actual recording to be in the studio with the band. This includes friends, fans, girlfriends, pets etc. unless they are an important part of the recording. They can create distraction causing slower production and higher costs to the client.
4. Know Your Sound, But Be Realistic.
Make sure your producer/engineer understands what sound you want, but keep in mind, they can't exactly reproduce another album's recording conditions for you. Just because your favorite band's drum tracks sound a certain way doesn't mean yours can -- that is, unless you use the same drummer, same kit, same room, same mics, same everything.
Bring some examples of styles you'd like to see reflected in your work to your producer/engineer ahead of time, and let them explain to you how they can split the difference to help your project come out as close to what you want, and remember: individuality IS a good thing!
5. Know When To Quit.
Adrenaline runs high in a situation like a recording studio, especially when you're racing to beat the clock to save money. But knowing when to quit can be really helpful, too.
The longer you push your ears, and longer you physically continue to perform, you'll get tired and thus your performance will suffer. It's better to know when to walk away for the day, and come back the next day refreshed and ready to go. It's not failure, it's making the best of your time. Your producer and engineer are susceptible to fatigue, too; keep them in mind when trying to fit in a marathon recording session with your band.
Now let's make it happen!
