And recorded the Vocals for the 2017 Czech Republic Eurovision song contest. To name but a few.

    My passion is recording. I love what I do. I hope to see you here soon.

    Recording Studio Packages


    Here you will find a number of studio packages, either for yourself or as a gift for friends and family. Currently we have two available and both are aimed at vocalists for demo purposes or as a present for family and friends.
    Package 1 - One Vocal Track - £50.00 
    My Image

    This package is for those who wants to record vocals over a backing track. It is an affordable way to create your demo CD if your looking to secure a gig and a great introduction to recording your first song in the studio if you’ve never done it before.

    Bring in your backing track (or we can source this for you) and record your vocals along to it. When the recording session is finished the engineer will mix the vocals to the backing track and add the shine to your vocals to create a track as if you were the original artist. A Wav or MP3 will be created of the session for you to take away.

    The package is a 2hr session. The 1st hour is for recording the vocals, lead and backing/harmonies if needed. The 2nd is for editing, mixing and creating a CD. You can watch and listen as the engineer mixes your vocals, the backing editing and adding necessary effects such as EQ, compression and reverb to create the finished track.

    Please check the notes tab for some tips.

    Also available as a RECORDING STUDIO GIFT VOUCHER .. call Neal for details

    Package 2 - Two Vocal Tracks - £70.00 
    My Image

    As above except you record 2 songs.

    Depending on your ability and experience you may find that we can record up to 3 songs within the first 2 hour session. This will depend on whether its purely a lead line to be recorded or lead and harmonies, either way bring 3 backing tracks with you and take advantage of the time.

    The package consists of a 3hr session. The 1st 2 hours will be recording the vocals. The 3rd is for editing, mixing and Wav/Mp3 creation.

    You leave with a Wav or if you prefer an MP3 file.

    Please check the notes tab for some tips.

    Also available as a RECORDING STUDIO GIFT VOUCHER .. call Neal for details

    Note 

    It is very important to come prepared. So make sure you learn the lyrics and parts before you arrive.

    • Make sure your backing track is in the right key for you.
    • We cater for all ages. We are fully CRB checked. However minors must be accompanied by an adult.
    • Please bring a memory stick too as we can create an MP3 for you.
    • Bring a friend.
    • Most importantly don’t worry we make it fun so you have a great time

    For all other types of recording we quote on an hourly basis. Please call Neal for details.

    Booking 

    Call Neal on 07766 555 218 or email [email protected] to check availability and price.

    Terms 

    Payment Terms:

    Payment via PayPal is preferred. Paypal accepts all major credit and debit cards and does NOT require you to have a PayPal account. Payment can be made before or at the studio on the day.

    Cash or cheque is accepted. Please make cheques payable to MiaCon Ltd.

    All recordings will remain the property of MiaCon until the final payment is made.

    Block bookings and day hire can be negotiated and you may be required to pay a deposit up-front.

    Note 

    Recording:

    To minimise the time spent recording it is best to come fully rehearsed, with everyone aware of their parts and the arrangement. This greatly speeds up the recording process and save you money.

    Mixing:

    We can provide a mix for you but you need to budget for this also. Therefore if you want to leave with a fully mixed CD please allow sufficient time in your booking to accommodate this. Please call me to discuss your requirements and I can roughly advise on how long this will take. The obvious thing to consider is if you are a band then editing and mixing multi tracks takes considerably more time than a vocalist singing to a backing track.

    The process includes:-

    Editing – Trimming audio takes. Tightening timing and or tuning if necessary.
    Mixing – Balancing the track with EQ, Compression, Reverb, Delays etc.

    The quality of mix will greatly depend on the time allocated for this. A basic mix may only include a selection of the best takes EQ’d and mixed together as the song. There may not be time to trim, repair timing etc. You must consider this when budgeting but we can fully discuss this at the time of booking.
