Answers to common questions
What is “post-production”?
This includes cleaning up and comping takes, tuning vocals, adding panning, EQ, effects and automation. A mix will be delivered for your review and modified based on your feedback. When you are happy with the track, we create a final distribution-ready master.
What is “comping”?
Comping (short for “composite”) is the process of building up a recording by selecting the best performances from multiple takes. The fewer takes required to get a good performance, the less comping time required.
How much time do I need to record my EP?
There is no hard-and-fast rule. However, you can reduce the amount of time required by being prepared for your session. See our post Are You Ready For The Studio for more details. If you can solidly play your songs through without having to stop, you’re on the right track.
Post-production is usually one-to-two times the recording time, based on the amount of comping, the complexity of the arrangement and how “produced” you want the record to sound.
