This session is ideal for: live sessions, tracking sessions (and taking the stems), mixing days, production days, pre-production days, writing sessions
10am-5pm (Mon-Sun) // 5pm-11pm (Mon-Thur)
FULL use of all equipment on site
This is the "basic" session. You get the studio, the equipment, the facilities, and an engineer for the day. You can do whatever you want in the six or seven hours, but everything has to be done in this time.
That means that if you want to record AND leave with mixed tracks, you will need to leave at least an hour per track mixing time at the end of the session.
As an example, if you were to record two songs on the day, you would have to stop recording at 3pm to allow your engineer to mix. With setup times, you'll start recording at about 11am so that gives you 4 hours to track everything you need, which means you need to be really well rehearsed. There's usually time to re-do the lead vocal, but overdubs and layers may be limited. You tend to leave these sessions with a basic mastered CD, or uploads to DropBox.
This session is popular with live bands, or bands who will take the audio away to mix themselves as that gives them the full session time to record everything they need. You can also book this time to mix; book in two days where day one is recording, day two is tidying up and mixing!
The above track was recorded & mixed during a single STANDARD DAY recording session.
