Pre-production


As the old saying goes…  “Its All About The Song(s)!”

Song choice, arrangement, texture and structure are very important for any single, EP or Album produced.

We are happy to help with Pre-production before you start recording your single, EP or Album. We suggest you come in for a rehearsal and have one of our Engineers/Producers sit in, record your rehearsal, listen to the outcome together and make suggestions.

We have a wealth of experience in the music industry, song writing and recording which makes us a valuable source of information to help make decisions about which songs to put on the EP or What order to release Singles, e.t.c.

We will spend time looking at the structure, arrangement and composition – adjusting parts to create tightness, deciding on tempos, and also look into ideas for “icing on the cake” such as extra percussion, keys, backing vocals and orchestration if it seems fit.

Every recording benefits from a pre-production session – it will also give the engineer time to get familiar with your band and your songs before recording starts. The more we know, the better we can tailor the recording sessions to your bands needs.

We recommend that you do some pre-production and song improvement and arrangement before considering any recording package.

It is $25+GST per hour  to dry hire our studio (without engineer)  and you can bring your own producer or engineer. Hiring our studio with one of our engineers or producers is $50+GST an hour. If you hire with one of our engineers then we also have a full set of  high quality backline you can use under their supervision, so all your band has to do is plug in and play. We record you, we all listen back, make suggestions, adjust as necessary… hey presto, some pre-production has occurred!
