For those first timers to a studio - we are simply the best at calming those jitters - we're super friendly, helpful and understand how nerve-racking it all is - but we want you to sound your best. Read what others say in the 'Reviews' tab further down this page. You will definitely enjoy this experience...

The aspiring pop star/artist/performer for the day will be shown around our state-of-the-art studio by their exclusive producer, and offered a drink (tea or coffee that is - but hey - people do bring fizz in - providing you're of age of course). The chosen songs are discussed and it's off to the control room to sort the music out and discuss how the process works - headphones - backing tracks - all those things... Then it's off to the studio to sing. With the producers friendly guidance throughout, several 'takes' are recorded of your chosen track, and we'll then 'drop-in' for those trickier bits - even multi-track if vocal lines converge. We use Auto-tune or Melodyne to hone in the pitch and timing of those awkward notes with sublime ease (Melodyne is absolutely amazing) - but only if you want it (some singers choose to go au-naturale - which of course is fine). We'll be comping (or splicing if it were good old fashioned tape) the best bits of all your recorded takes together that will ultimately conclude with a thoroughly professional sounding performance.

With a Singer Gold Pro or Singer Platinum Pro experience, you first sing your song choice number 1 - we then mix it - you then sing your next choice, we mix your next choice etc. In between singing you'll get to watch first-hand how the producer performs pure magic on your track - and why those pop stars you hear on the radio get away with so much!

Once mixed, we'll master your tracks and save them to a brand new quality SD card (we supply) ready for you to take home and back-up for safe keeping. Friends and family will be gobsmacked at how professional you sound!

An HD video is included and you can use the files we film and save to a brand new quality SD card (we supply) for making your own video. The video files include the 'live recording sound' but you can dub on your mixed tracks using appropriate movie editing app, creating a pop video or voice/music/demo reel. Have fun! more >

An exclusive Personal music web page (see demo here) will be created where you can stream and download your music as MP3s, and includes a photograph we take of you in the studio. Perfect for sharing with friends and family - wherever they are!

FAQ

 

Where do I find the lyrics?

A good source for finding your chosen songs lyrics is azlyrics.com.

It's important to come to our studio armed with all the lyrics of your chosen songs printed on sheet paper (include copies for each singer participating). Up to 3 sheets of lyrics can be placed along side one another on our studio stands so please print on one side of the paper only to avoid noisy page turns that might be heard through your recordings!

 

Can I bring my own karaoke tracks to the studio?

You are more than welcome to bring your own backing tracks on CD, mobile device or USB memory stick. You can also buy your own tracks at various vendors, including Sunfly Karaoke & Ameritz.

 

Can we remove the vocals off an original recording?

Removing vocals from the artists original song can sometimes be done but the process badly effects the music and the quality ends up being sub-standard. We do not use or recommend this process in our recording experiences nor does it comply with copyright laws and other regulations set by MCPS.

Preparation

Lyrics

Singers should always bring printed lyrics for their chosen songs, even if they can remember them off the top of their head - it may be that we start recording at certain points throughout the song and not just from the beginning making a hard copy invaluable. Find lyrics with our 'backing tracks' search tab above. If you've decided to record a duet then two copies of the lyric sheets will be required as we normally use one mic per singer - and on different sides of the live room!

Marking your lyrics

It's a good idea to mark your lyrics against the original singer and track. Mark notes such as how many beats before the singing starts, and where abouts is the instrumental sections are when you should not be singing. If you have quite lengthy lyrics then you could also mark points where the original singer breathes between words and lines.

Rehearsing

Backing tracks do not have any lead vocals to guide you through the song. Make sure that you are well rehearsed so as not to waste your allotted time on practicing or too many re-takes. YouTube is a great source of karaoke tracks to practice too. Also take a look at our Backing track page for more song information. Take a listen to the 'Vocal tips and exercises' tracks in the tab below.
