Singer/Songwriter Demo Special

So you’ve got a way with words, a cool singing voice and a well-worn acoustic guitar… now what??

If you’re in or around the GTA, you should really drop by! Here’s why:

Back in September 2013, I began offering students and indie musicians a “too good to be true” afternoon flat rate at the new location in the Upper Beaches– you show up with your guitar and vocal chops honed, we hang out for the afternoon* and you leave with professionally recorded, mixed AND mastered versions of  up to THREE** of Your songs ready to be uploaded to your social media sites!

It’s an awesome way to spend the afternoon! 🙂

 

The “break-down”:

  • Your voice and guitar recorded by a skilled Engineer /Producer with over 20yrs experience using pro audio equipment including Neve-designed pre amps, Neumann, AKG, Rode, Blue, Shure and Audio Technica mics, Boutique compressors and EQs, Antelope Audio Mastering grade AD/DA converters and monitoring, etc. (In other words, no ‘rinky dink’ low budget USB mics, cheap-O pre-amps and audio interfaces!)
  • Coaching and guidance as needed throughout the session
  • A world-class final mix of  each song done with the same cutting edge audio tools used in studios around the world that easily charge twice as much or more!
  • A red book standard master of each song in either high quality mp3 (320kbps) ready to be uploaded to Your soundcloud, bandcamp, and personal web site etc. or a Hi Res WAV file for CD pressing or DVD EPK purposes (blu ray/HD quality audio up to 24bit/96k ( Mastering alone can cost anywhere from $75 to over $200 PER SONG at some studios!!)

The same industry standard analogue processing found in world class recording studios...at a fraction of the price!

For anyone that’s ever recorded in a professional studio (sorry, but ‘Garage Band’ in a buddy’s laptop-based bedroom “studio”  just doesn’t count!) or considered doing so and shopped around, I don’t have to tell you what a great deal this is… but it won’t be available forever, so now’s the time to take your tunes seriously!
