It is IMPORTANT that you read the information below and then CLICK HERE TO BOOK YOUR SESSION

Before booking, you are strongly advised to read our Terms & Conditions which contains important information about your session, and our cancellation policies. By redeeming your voucher, you are agreeing to our terms and conditions.


 CONGRATULATIONS!
Congratulations! - You have the ticket to a fantastic opportunity to record yourself in one of our top professional sound recording studios. You are going to absolutely LOVE your experience.

All you need to do now is follow the instructions below to book your exclusive session and then get practising for your big day!!
 To Redeem Your Voucher
Your voucher is valid for 12 months from the date ordered, and bookings must be made by this date. The expiry date will be noted on your CD voucher alongside your unique voucher reference ID.

Unless the person who bought the gift experience has previously been in touch and booked a specific date for your event, you will need to decide on the following:
  1. The location of the studio you wish to attend. This can be any of our nationwide studios, not necessarily the closest to you.
  2. Have an idea of dates that you would like to attend (allowing yourself enough time to rehearse of course)
  3. The song(s) that you would like to record. Musicians / singer songwriters who are intending to record their own music just need to let us know their instrument configuration so we can prepare the studio for you.

You then need to complete the details on the form via the link at the top of this page. Your details and preferences will be forwarded to the relevant studio who will contact you direct to get you booked in for your exclusive session. We will send your backing track selection(s) to singers in advance within 5 working days of your form submission. Please let us know as soon as possible after receipt if the song, or arrangement isn't as expected.

Availability will vary between studios and you should expect to wait a few weeks for your session. Bare in mind that weekends and holiday periods are always the most popular time and you may have to wait longer for your booking. Please try to give us a few options for availability rather than just one day and set time as this may not be possible, especially with shorter sessions.

If you have any problems with making your reservation or have any other questions, please contact us.

 Choose Your Backing Tracks

SINGERS & SOLO MUSICIAN EXPERIENCES

You need to choose your backing tracks in advance and let us know your selection(s). We will email an MP3 of your chosen songs and lyrics for you to practise to and also forward them to your chosen studio in advance of your session.

Singers can view our general list of backing tracks available via the 'tracks' link at the top of this page. We have over 36,000 tracks to choose from, but please let us know if you don't see what you want as we can usually obtain most popular tracks, especially very recent ones that haven't yet been added to our list.

Musicians with our "Solo Musician" experiences may perform to backing tracks, record your own composition, or bring your own backing if you prefer. The backing track catalogue for individual instruments varies from the main vocal catalogue. Please use the appropriate link below:

Accordion
Bass Guitar
Drums
Flute
Guitar
Harmonica
Keyboard
Piano
Saxophone
Trumpet
Violin


You may have your own version of a particular backing track that you wish to use. If so, let us know when redeeming your voucher, and remember to bring it with you on the day (on CD as an audio track or as as .wav / MP3 File format on CD or USB memory stick).

As a rule, allow 1 hour to record and mix each song. If you are well rehearsed, you may be able to record more, so its always worth having an extra choice in mind just in case. Backing tracks of 1 per hour session are included with your package. If you want more to choose from, you can order these via the 'additional extras' link on our homepage for a small fee.

We have access to tens of thousands of backing tracks for all genres of music. We'll do our very best to find the best version for you. Sometimes however, we may not be able to find a backing track to a particular song, especially if it is an obscure or not very popular song. If you desperately want to record a song that we are unable to locate a backing track, we can arrange to have the track produced especially for you for a fee. Please contact us if this is required.

If you want extras such as additional backing tracks, souvenir CD's etc, you must let us know and order online at least 48 hours before your session so we have time to arrange this for you.

 Party's 

We strongly recommend you contact us to discuss your party requirements prior to booking online. We can give you advice and suggestions from experience to ensure your recording studio party goes like a song!

If you require a specific date for your party, its vital that you get in touch before booking so we can check and confirm availability in advance for you at our studios to avoid disappointment.

Consider song choices carefully for party's. Songs with a strong group sing-along chorus and straightforward melodies for the verses work best. Popular good examples include ABBA, Glee, High School Musical, Black Eyed Peas, Jessie J, Katy Perry, Spice Girls, S Club 7 etc..... You get the idea!!

We will send the backing tracks and lyrics for you to distribute accordingly.

Ensure every participant is familiar with the songs, and for children's parties we strongly recommend that you ensure they practise together before the big day and have an idea of who will sing which lines. This will ensure we get the very best out of the party and get as much time recording as possible.

 
 Musicians / Bands

If it's your first time in the studio then there's a few things to take note of which will help you get the best from your session:

  1. Decide on the songs you are going to record and rehearse them well before you arrive at the studio. Stick with your song choice.
  2. Discuss your songs, band set up, and the sound you would like to achieve with the engineer before starting to record. Bring some reference material demonstrating the sounds of individual instruments and overall mixes tat you like the sound of. Your engineer can work with you to help you get the sound you are after.
  3. Make sure your instruments and amplifiers are well maintained, free of squeaks, rattles and noise. Change guitar strings a day or so before, and drums should be tuned and new skins will help achieve a good sound sound. If you dont have decent cymbals, try to borrow some, it will make a massive difference to the final mix.
  4. Don't try to record too many songs. Be realistic, it will take you at least 2 hours to record a song as a band, and you also have to edit, mix and master them too! Better to have less songs that sound great than rushing through your set with average results.
  5. More often than not you will all record together first and then when the drums are correct, you may well re-record the other instruments one at a time and add overdubs such as doubled rhythm guitars, leads guitars, percussion and backing vocals. Your engineer/producer will suggest various ways to record that is not only the most practical, but suits your style and ability.
  6. Bear in mind your studio time includes time to set up, so make sure you arrive on time and promptly get your instruments, especially the the drums set up so the sound engineer can get to work.
  7. Keep quiet during the mixing process. Listen carefully and contribute ideas to the producer. It's your songs and if you chat throughout you will inevitably miss something... and annoy the producer no doubt!
  8. Don't be TOO rock n' roll ! Recording is hard work and requires a lot of concentration to detail. Don't turn up over tired with a hangover, and avoid drinking alcohol during your session.
  9. Enjoy your experience. have fun and learn from the session. If you are not sure about anything, ask the engineer for advice. They will be more than happy to help you.
 Upgrade
Need more time? No problem, we can upgrade your voucher and / or add additional studio time, but you will need to do this BEFORE your session so we can book the additional studio time for you. You can do this online or call us to book over the phone. If ordering online, please quote your name and gift reference in the "Additional Information" box

If you would like any additional extras such as additional backing tracks, souvenir CD's, additional CD copies you must order online or call us to pay for them at least 48 hours before your event.
 
 Our Top 10 Recording Tips
  1. Make sure that you are well rehearsed so as not to waste your allotted time on practicing or re-takes. Groups should have already worked out who is going to perform which parts of the chosen songs prior to arriving at your session. Ideally, you should get together before to practise too!
  2. Be sure to know the song(s) you are going to record without the lead vocal. Less experienced singers sometimes can have difficulties singing the lead vocal without the guide. All you will sing to is the backing track often with vocal harmonies for accompaniment which can prove to be a lot more tricky than singing along with the original version!
  3. Bare in mind that the session time includes not only your performance time, but time taken in studio preparation, mixing, mastering and final CD production for you to take home there and then. To ensure your event flows smoothly, we will often mix and make CD's for party's after the event and send them on to you a few days later.
  4. A one hour session goes very quickly, and you will need to be well rehearsed to get the best from your vocals. If in doubt, book an extra hour.
  5. It is quite normal for less experienced singers to feel a little nervous at first - Try not to worry - we're very friendly and will help you get the very best from your session. After a couple of run through warm ups and there will be no stopping you!
  6. As a rule, it takes longer to mix and master a song as it does to record the vocals! Use the time allocated wisely.
  7. If you are well rehearsed, you should on average expect to record and mix one song per hour session. Don't worry as we will keep you on track.
  8. Avoid bringing too many friends, family and fans! Longer sessions can prove tedious for spectators and guests can be off-putting to all involved. The maximum number of spectators that we allow is four.
  9. Practise, Practise, Practise.
  10. Relax and have fun at your exclusive session, and who knows, you may be our next superstar!
