Jay paid $55 @TheHorse and walked away with an hour’s worth of recorded material that sounded like this:

Jay probably doesn’t want the world to hear his second rehearsal with a new band in his new favorite recording studio – He probably wouldn’t want all of his friends hearing his imperfections as he tries to figure out a new song.  All musicians want to be represented properly.  But wait!  What if his material could potentially sound awesome?

Well then you listen and tell me otherwise…I would like to hear your opinion.


Now please let me explain further:

So we set out to build the best green room we could…commercials, video shoots, B-roll footage, we’ve done it all – but then I realized more could be had…What if we set up some awesome microphones into some waaay cool mic preamps and then recorded a few (in this case it was four channels) tracks into the computer. Set it and forget it.  If the mics sound good, and levels are ok – you are able to get a lot of basic tracking done for DIRT CHEAP, as my new friend Jay just found out.

He purchased two hours of rehearsal time in our Green Rehearsal Room @ $15 per hour.

Then he purchased our flat 1-hour recording fee of $25.

This is a whopping $55.00   I prove a point, I then took the 4 track rehearsal recording and took it into our Studio A, and somewhat randomly chose a small snippet and mixed it on the console.  Then I had our mastering engineer work a little magic.  What you hear is potential greatness.  They used the first hour to prepare the material and rehearse – as the levels were already set, they dove in and knocked out multiple tunes.

*Note – you can get a much better sound if the vocals are overdubbed at a later time, instead of sharing the room with the other microphones.Travis Clark in the Live Room
