We primarily record vocals, usually one at a time. Usually we record or program instruments straight into the DAW via a midi controller such as a keyboard.
We arrange using our resource of instrument libraries, and can engage session musicians if needed.
We record audio using numerous industry digital tools and techniques for songs as well as for audiobooks or other voice overs.
We do a lot of mixing on your project while tracking. However, we will still need additional time when you are finished recording and editing. We do the rest of the mixing on our own time but clients are welcome to be present. This is where we balance the level between instruments, add dynamic processing, EQ, effects, panning, detailed automation and whatever else is needed to make your song sound great.
Mastering is the process of adding the final touches to your final mix as a whole to make it sound its best on a variety of sound systems.

We produce produce uplifting music of many genres.
But we don’t record music that’s profane, vulgar, violent, satanic, or sexual. If you are not sure if your music fits these categories, contact us and we can further clarify.
Nor do we allow alcohol, tobacco or drugs in the studio. Food in the studio is fine as long as drinks are kept in a re-sealable container.
An $29 deposit (which will be applied toward the cost of your session) is required to schedule your first session. This deposit will be nonrefundable. If we receive a cancellation notice at least 48 hours before your reserved session time, we will work with you to reschedule at a more convenient time for both parties and apply your existing deposit for the new appointment.
Billing for the session at our established hourly rate starts from the beginning of your scheduled appointment, not from the time you show up (if later).
You are welcome to arrive up to 15 minutes before the session appointment without being charged for the time. This time can be used for setting up your instrument, warming up your vocals and/or getting yourself ready for the session. The billable session will start at your scheduled time and begins with studio set-up.
We do charge for studio set-up time, but not for take-down and clean up. Most instruments, including guitars, keyboards, basses, etc. (especially vocalists!) take minimal set-up time (typically about 5 minutes).
Live Drums: We do not currently record live drums.
As noted, changes and/or cancellations require at least a 48 hours notice.
If you miss your session without notifying us at all, you will be billed for the complete session appointment time you scheduled. You will be required to pay the balance due for that session before you can schedule your next session or receive any files from us.
Payment must be caught up at the end of each visit. Scratch or quick mixes, or other audio or session files will not be released by us until payment is made in full. A 10% monthly late fee will be applied on any remaining balance that goes unpaid past the due date.
If a project must be billed and can not be paid at the end of a session due to billing practices of an established business, then there will be an $25 billing service charge per invoice.
We accept PayPal, Venmo and cash. We do not accept personal checks.
If you are dissatisfied with any of our services, let us know at the time, or contact us immediately with your concerns and we will do everything possible to make things right.
We hold your project for 30 days after the last time the project was worked on. If you think you might want to return to the project after more than 30 days, it is the client’s responsibility to request a copy of the session/project within this time period. Although we do not intentionally erase any old projects, we can not be held responsible for storing your project beyond 30 days.
If you plan to work on a project over an extended time period (more than 2 months), you should bring a hard drive to store a backup of your project through the life of the project.
We strive to keep your projects safe while you are recording and mixing, so we run auto-save on all while we work. We backup each day’s projects to a separate hard drive. If your work is accidentally lost to circumstances beyond our control within 30 days of your last visit on that specific project, we will replace the work lost by crediting you back the studio time you used to create the project.
As the client, it is your responsibility to secure permission to use any copyrighted material in your project. We do not take any responsibility for any violation of copyright laws by you.
We keep your project private, so we will not post your songs or give them away (whether partial or complete) without your permission – because we want to be very careful to preserve the excitement of your future release.
If a third party is paying for your session, it is highly encouraged that you sign a contract with the third party which outlines, in advance, who has access to your project in its partial and complete states. If we are not informed to the contrary, we will assume the third party paying for the session has all rights to all of the mixes and session material that you worked on with us. Not having a contract in these situations can become very nasty if there are disagreements between you and the third party, so please consider a written document outlining the intent of the parties.
We appreciate your cooperation on these policies and look forward to having a fun time working on your project with you.
Our recording studio is in south Utah Valley, Mapleton Utah, which in between Springville and Spanish Fork, and 15 minutes from Provo.
