If you do not have a mask, we have them available for $1.00 each. 
  • Only recording artists and anybody involved in production are permitted inside the studio. Do not bring guests (friends, family, spouse, children, etc.) as they will not be permitted to enter.

About Mastering

We cannot complete mastering on the same day as the recording. 
Many factors are involved in mastering (number of songs, number of musicians, number of instruments, client requests, etc).

In general for up to 4-5 songs, the process could take up to a week or more. For more than 5 songs, the mastering process could take several weeks. The timeline will be discussed with you when we begin the mastering process.
