Fabulous fun!

We'll capture the best performance no matter how young, old or nervous our singing star is. We'll relax them into the studio surroundings, and show them how their vocal prowess can be transformed in to a spectacular performance using our top digital facility and highly experienced, friendly producers.

 

The Experience

The artist(s) for the day will be shown around our state-of-the-art studio by their exclusive producer. We'll shoot a picture of them so that preparation of their photo printed Souvenir CDs can begin. The chosen songs are discussed and, after a few vocal warming tips, it's off to the live room to start the recording session. With the producers friendly guidance, a few 'retakes' and 'drop-ins' where necessary (they'll be talking the talk too!) and then 'comping' the best bits together will ultimately conclude with a thoroughly professional sounding performance.

 

Music Web Page

An exclusive Music Web Page, just for you, will be created allowing streaming and download your recordings as MP3s, as well as downloading the high resolution picture we took for your CD print. Perfect for sharing with friends and family - wherever they are!

 

Souvenir CD and Video DVD

All tracks are mixed and mastered with precision before being duplicated to the photo printed Souvenir CD(s). If the recording artist has a Video DVD included with their experience then the footage captured from the live room camera feeds is made in to a Video DVD, complete with case. Add this to your order under Options in the shopping basket.

Backing tracks

We supply professional quality backing tracks for your singing experience or party session.

Whether it's a charting topping hit from the past, or a fresh tune currently being played on the Radio 1 playlist, we're sure to have the track. You can find karaoke versions of tracks (include the term 'karaoke') to rehearse with on iTunes, Spotify or YouTube.

 

 

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 a copy of the lyrics for each singer participating). They'll be placed on a music stand in front of the singer and cannot be turned so only print on 1 side of the paper.

 

Can I bring my own karaoke tracks to the studio?

You are more than welcome to bring your own backing tracks on CD, iPod or 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.
