What should we bring to the recording session?
You should bring everything you would normally bring to play a live show. It’s also Highly Recommended that you have at least relatively new guitar strings and drum heads, and that guitars are correctly intonnated. If you’re interested in using any of the studio’s equipment for any reason, that’s always an option. Please check out the “Gear” page and let me know in advance if there is gear you’d like to use, so I can make sure that it’s available.
How long will it take for us to record?
This is almost impossible to answer. Every band is different, so every band takes a different amount of time to record. There are many factors that go into this, such as : How many songs do you need to record? Are we recording it live, or tracking each instrument separately? How well rehearsed are you? Is it a demo or is it a full length?; etc.
If you send me an e-mail, I’ll be happy to give you an estimate of how long your recording might take, based on previous experience, and based on what kind of recording you’re looking to do. Generally speaking, it almost always takes people a little longer than they initially think it would.
Where is your studio located?
The studio is located in North Philadelphia and is one space among many in a large warehouse building. An address wouldn’t really help you, so I’ll just tell you how to get there once you’ve booked a session. For reference it’s about 15 minutes from Center City Philadelphia, and easily accessible from I-95.
Do you specialize in recording any specific genres of music?
I have a lot of experience working with punk, hardcore, metal, and indie rock style bands, but I’m interested in and capable of recording any kind of music that you want to make.
If you have any other questions at all (Pricing? Scheduling? Recording Style? etc.) Please get in touch, and I’ll do my best to get you a quick answer.
