Payment

Payment is due before we begin any work on a project. Our PayPal account is fully verified and can accept payment by credit or debit card, or your checking account by online transfer.

 

Uploading Tracks

Once payment is confirmed, we will send you a link where you can upload your track via our Box.com account. If possible we prefer separate stems of your tracks - this way we can balance out our own headphone mixes prior to recording the drum tracks. Please make sure your files start on the downbeat of the session and let us know at what tempo your session was recorded.

 

***Please also provide your session’s sample and bit depth (typically 44.1k/24bit)***

 

Scratch Tracks

If you are sending any kind of scratch/reference tracks please make sure they are as accurate to the click as possible. It can be difficult to record drums to an existing track when all of the elements are not in sync with the click. Typically we assume if an artist or band sends us scratch tracks that they will be re-recorded to the drum tracks. If the stems/tracks you are sending us are FINAL cuts please let us know and we will certainly work with them.

 

Tracking the Drums

Once we have recorded the parts we will send out an mp3 of the rough mix for your approval. If there is anything not to your liking on the first pass we will fix the problem and resend another mp3/rough mix to you.

 

Pricing begins at $250.00 per track and includes up to three revisions; beyond that revisions are charged at our standard hourly rate at $75.00 per hour. Please note that we need to know about any revisions within 24 hours of submitting the mp3/rough mix to you - otherwise we will assume that the tracks have been accepted for final approval. Revisions received beyond this 24-hour window are billed at our standard hourly rate.

 

Final Approval

Once we have your final approval, we will send the complete tracks

as .wav files via Box.com. finish your record!
