Available services include recording, editing, programming, mixing, mastering, pre-production, consultation, and full production packages. If you know what you want and are ready to book time just send me a message and I'll get you all set up.
Want to come by the studio to discuss your project and check out the studio? Message me and we can set up a time. Pre-project consultations are always completely free and you're never under any obligation to book studio time. The way I see it, you deserve the opportunity to make sure I'd be a good fit for your project before you book your studio time.
Every project is different, so if you have any questions about your particular project's needs don't hesitate to send me a message and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have. If you require a service you don't see here or if you have specific logistical or budgeting requirements you need to meet, just ask and I'll do my best to accommodate your needs.
MUSIC PRODUCTION PACKAGE
The whole package. This bundle includes studio time for recording, editing, and mixing / mastering services at BLUElight Audio|Media - everything you need for professional results. We work together to take your project from a creative vision to a fully realized product that can compete with the big boys and hopefully take your music to the next level. Music production packages are charged a flat rate. $500 per song for independent artists, which includes two full days of studio time per song. Additional time can be added if needed.
ENGINEERING / GENERAL RECORDING
This includes recording session setup and tracking services. I take the utmost care to capture great sounds and performances for your music - This service is ideal for artists who have already made mixing arrangements and just need quality tracking and production. Engineering/tracking services are charged a per-day rate. $250 per day or $40 per hour.
MIXING / MASTERING
If you've already recorded your songs elsewhere and need professional mixing services, bring them in! I love to work with artists to fully realize the vision you have for your songs, and an experienced mixing engineer can be just the ticket for achieving a more exciting, professional-level sound for your music. All I need are your audio files on DVD or hard-drive, and after a meeting to discuss what you're looking for you can leave the rest to me. I also offer à la carte mastering services if needed. Mixing and mastering services are charged a flat rate. Please contact me for a quote as all projects' needs are different.
Pre-production can be one of the most important aspects of making a great recording. The pre-production process can vary quite a bit from project to project, but it generally consists of the producer (me) working with the artists in one-on-one and/or rehearsal environment to tweak arrangements and lyrics, give advice about parts and performances, making demo recordings of the songs, and generally helping the artist to prepare for the recording process. Pre-production can be done at the studio or I can come to you. Pre-production services are charged an hourly or per-day rate depending on your project's needs. $250 per day or $40 per hour.
Editing services include rhythmic drum editing, sampling, vocal tuning, and overall tightening of performances. This is ideal for artists who are producing themselves who need editing work done for their projects but don't have the time or resources to do so. Bring in your tracks and I can help you tighten and tune the performances to achieve a more polished overall sound. Editing services are charged a flat rate. Please contact me for a quote as all projects' needs are different.
On top of producing, engineering, and mixing, I offer consultation services. This is ideal if you are self-producing your project, just getting into recording, or just need some outside perspective on your project. Need help getting drum or guitar sounds? Having trouble with Pro Tools? Want to learn how to better utilize effects processing or tune a vocal track? Need advice on a mixdown? Message me about consulting services and I'll be happy to help. Consultation services are charged an hourly or per-day rate depending on your project's needs. $250 per day or $40 per hour.
