| The equipment
used in every PRS studio differs considerably so endless lists of various
equipment is, in our opinion not overly important or helpful, suffice to say
that no matter if it's Pro tools on a Mac or Cubase on a PC, the end results
are very similar - a professional quality product worthly of your musical
talent and something you can be proud of.
X Factor Standard Package. (Every Karaoke singer's favourite!) 3 hour recording session.* Record 2 songs. Receive a CD plus two further copies of your polished performances to take away. When ordering your session please let us know if you have your own backing tracks. If you do, and intend to use them, then we ask that you send us a copy (either electronically or by post) after your session is confirmed. This will give us the opportunity of preparing the backing(s) for your session and avoid any technical issues of incompatibility or data read issues. If you do not have your own backing tracks then we will do our very best to source them for you. (A small cost will be incurred for this service).
|If we supply the backing tracks to you, or even if you intend to use your own, you should spend enough time and practice them fully, (which we always recommend - even the London Symphony Orchestra rehearses!) We will send them to you in plenty of time, so factor this into your calculations for when you choose your recording day; giving yourself that time to practice.|
| Remember to
select songs that you definitely know that are in a vocal range that you're
comfortable with. If you need to strain to reach those upper notes, we can help
put you in tune but it will still sound strained. Likewise, if a song is too
low this will affect the voice in a similar way often robbing it of all
projection and tone. We can, in exceptional circumstances, alter the pitches of
the backing track but this will need to be discussed on a song by song basis.
Remember: Rehearse over and over the songs you want to record. The session
should be a place for getting your takes 'in the can', not for practicing. The
time you spend in preparation will help to improve results.
*Although your session lasts for 3 hours, 30 minutes (average) is required by the engineer to mix and master your performance(s) and burn CD's.
A typical session plan would be roughly as follows.
For those that have added up all the timings above, you will notice this comes to 2 hrs and 45 minutes. We have allocated 15minutes as a contingency.
