One Song at a Time
This allows the engineer to mold and shape the sound of each instrument independently of the others
The recording 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 deciding on the songs appropriate key signatures (the key that you will sing in). We also decide tempos and refine the style and feel of the songs.
All the pre-production is done, and now we can all enjoy making your song together. Under the watchful eye of Chief Jody Gray, you will record your scratch vocal and the rhythm track.
Adding 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!
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. By taking the time to learn the songs and practice vocals, you will be ready for your big moment in front of the microphone.
We combine the recorded elements and process them to create your finished master.
This is the final part of the record-making process and adds the final polish to your finished master mixes.
