WHEN AND HOW DO I PAY FOR MY SESSION?

For longer sessions, or full length records, we recommend you book your time at least a month in advance. Shorter sessions such as EP's, demos, or singles can be booked with less advance time. Just fill out a booking request on our contact page, and we'll get back to you by phone or email as quickly as we can. 

WHERE IS THE REC ROOM LOCATED?
We have two locations. Studio A is located in Summerville, Georgia. Studio B is located in Cleveland, Tennessee. Both locations are easily accessed and work can be done from one studio and transfered to the other seemlessly, if schedules require it. 

Studio Preparation

Guitar/Bass

We DI all guitars and bass, unless you request we mic your rig in one of our isolation booths. We request a heads up on this to ensure our rooms are 100% ready for you to come in and begin recording.
We can provide guitars and basses in house but we do ask that you let us know ahead of time.
Please put new strings on your instrument. We do not provide strings, so be sure to bring an appropriate amount and be ready to go when you arrive. 

Drums

Replace your kit with brand new batter and resonant (top & bottom) drum heads. Bring TONS of sticks, and make sure to take care of any sqeeky thones, pedals, or stands with WD-40, or a similar lubricant. Wipe down and clean all cymbols, and replace any cracked or brokwn cymbols

​Vocals

Eat healthy foods, drink plenty of water and green tea, and be well rested when arriving at the studio. Please have typed lyrics for yourself and your engineer ready when it's vocal time. This makes your engineers job a little easier as they can follow along while recording vocals and make sure evey word is sang crystal clear!  



Artists/Musicians

Please have a clear understanding of your ideas with all members involved, and have them well rehearsed before entering the studio. Establish the tempos to each of your songs using a  metronome .  If your songs change tempos multiple times, that's okay, Just make note of all the metronome BPM's. Preparing to record to a metronome with ensure all musicians will be comfortable performing in the studio. This will save you time and money
