How It Works

Pre-production with Producer/Engineer Jody Gray

The record making process always starts with Pre-Production planning.

This is where we work with you to plan your song or project in detail from start to finish so that you understand the process completely and we can address any concerns or issues well before you start recording.

Our approach to Pre-Production is to give you expert guidance based on decades of experience, care, and attention.

Another part of the Pre-Production process is meeting with you to decide on the song(s) and set appropriate Key signatures [The key that you will sing in]. We also decide tempos and refine the style and feel of the songs.

Production Session:

This is where the fun begins.

All the Pre-Production is done, and now we can all enjoy making your song(s) together.

Under the watchful eye of Jody Gray, you will record your scratch vocal and the rhythm track.

Next: Jody will add instruments such as Drums, Bass, Keyboards, and Guitars, small percussion both electric and acoustic, adding solos and overdubs. We also have a roster of musicians that play various instruments other than the above selections or styles. There will be an additional charge if you need a musician for hire outside of the realm of what we can provide.

You’re welcome to bring in your musicians as well!

Next: We Record Lead and Background Vocals.

This should be very relaxed, and there will be lots of time to experiment. Jody will be on hand every step of the way to encourage and guide you through your vocal sessions.

Note: We always recommend that you rehearse your vocals ahead of time. Preparation is everything in the recording, and if you take the time to learn the songs well and practice your vocals, you will be more relaxed and ready for your big moment in front of the microphone.

 Once all the recording is finished, and vocals are done, we can start mixing. Mixing is the process where we combine all the recorded elements and process them accordingly to create your finished master, and this will be two of our experienced engineers.

Mastering is the final part of the record making process and adding the final polish to your finished master mixes.

Only when you are completely satisfied, we will supply either a final CD Production Master or a CD Image File. Both of these formats can be used to duplicate your final CD at home, or, they can be sent to a replication plant to produce your glass master for pressing CDs for commercial sale or promotional services.

To get this package, we ask for a 50% deposit 14 – 21 days before your actual session so you can be put on the schedule and the remaining deposit the day of your first session.







Audio Book Recording





The Book Comes Alive In Audio

We offer professional recording for audio books, e-books, narrations that are converted into high-quality MP3 files, ready and compatible with all the Audio Book marketing websites,,, iTunes, etc.

Audio Books are produced for the Listeners!  It’s the Listeners that we must impress.










The most important factor when recording your audio book is how much-unwanted noise gets onto the final recording. You want as little as you can get. The recording environment plays a large part in this.

The main advantage of using a professional studio with proper recording rooms over a home studio is there will be very little unwanted noise in the recording, making a more intelligible, pleasant and engaging listening experience.

Our studio recording booth is sound-sealed to significantly reduce or stop outside sounds getting recorded at the same time as the audio that you want, and that’s what differentiates them from your home environment.


That is why it’s vital that you do it in a professional studio in an isolation booth with the right microphone and an experienced engineer.

If you have any questions about recording your audio book, please give us a call. We have years of experience, and we’ll guide you through the entire process step by step.

How Long Does It Take To Produce A High-Quality Audio Book?

It’s very difficult to estimate the exact time.

It will depend on the number of words that are being recorded and the experience of the voice over talent  who will be speaking those words.

Below is the audio book process it will give you an idea of what takes place from start to finish.

Recording- The voice of a single professional voice talent.

Editing- The cleanup of the spoken words

Mixing/Mix-down- Without music or sound /With music or sound at the intro, between chapters and at the end.

Recording TIPS


Focus on the Message and Emotion of the Song

If you can memorize the lyrics more power to ya! The message and emotion(s) of the song sound more natural. Mean what you say when you sing!


Be Well Rested

If your vocal session is scheduled when you’re tired and you’re fatigued you will  have poor results. No screaming or talking too much the day before.


Make Sure You’re Comfortable With Your Headset Mix

Headset mix makes a big difference in how you sing and perform! Being in a professional studio will allow the engineer to get the right volume for the instrument levels, add voice effects or remove effects.

The engineer will adjust the sound, eliminating any distractions so your session will sound its best.
