FAQ

What is the difference between Studio time and (what we offer) Project Time?

Studio time is using an engineer who is not creatively involved in what you recording. The engineer is simply paid by the hour and focus is to deliver a quality recording. Project Based studio time allows you to work with a producer who consults with you about the vision of the overall project and is actively involved in assisting you in your creation.
