Recording Your Originals With a Full Band Sound!

   
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.
