The Pennyland Music Recording & Production
Studio is a small custom-designed well equipped state-of-the-art
studio perfect for solo artists, duos and trios††
Studio uses state of the art recording hardware and software to produce
professional results you will be proud of. Additional services are available
- such as advising on arrangements (or even writing your own arrangements for
you), producing backing tracks in your preferred key and style, and mastering
the final production using sophisticated post production software techniques.
If you donít have the backing track for the song you want to record but know
which version you want to use, we can usually get hold of one for you. We can
even make small key changes to suit your voice if itís necessary.
Itís perfect for amateur, semi-professional and professional artists wanting to make their own CD compilations. Thereís someone who will listen to what you want to do and advise you on how best to do it. Pennyland Music Studio is not just a ďproduction lineĒ where you come in, record your tracks on to a CD and then leave with the first mix so the next customer can follow straight afterwards. Weíre here to spend time with you helping and advising. On the other hand, if you know exactly what youíre doing and precisely how you want to do it because you've done it several times before (as many clients have), and you just want to record some tracks with no post production, thatís OK too. Itís your studio time so it's entirely up to you how we proceed. However do please prepare in advance Ė time flies by extremely quickly in a recording studio so make sure you have your lyrics sheet with you and ready if you need it along with your backing track(s). When you book your studio time itís usually a good idea to send your backing tracks to the studio in advance so they can be set up on the system before you arrive. This will save valuable studio time because you will be paying from the actual time you reserve in the studio until the CD is produced at the end of the session not just the mic-recording, mixing and post-production time so itís much more economical to plan well in advance.
How much studio time will I need?
Finally, do ensure you come prepared† with your backing tracks, lyrics, and for a video, your storyboard ideas and preferences.
Finally, please arrive at your scheduled time
because this is the time from which the clock starts ticking and from which
you are charged.
