Sing-A-Long helpful notes:

The studio can record sing-a-longs in a number of different ways to fit almost any price range.  However, here are some tips to help you get the best recording.

1.  Schedule a visit the studio in person prior to the time you want to record.  This will let you get familiar with the studio layout and discuss your needs with the engineer to determine what will work best for you.  You will be able to preview work the studio has done for others.  We can also offer some mic techniques that will help give you a better recording in less time.

2.  Know your material.  Do not plan to do what most people do at a karaoke club and come in with 23 songs to sing one after the other while reading the words.  Plan on doing one to three songs at a time and know them well.  You might be surprised to see what bad habits you have picked up from singing live without hearing yourself on playback.  You should have a copy of the words, if you think you might need them, typed on one side of a page only, (one or more pages) and double spaced with large type.  This will let you clip the pages to the music stand and see the words without moving the paper.  The sound of turning a page would be picked up by the studio mic.  It also makes it easer to "Q" yourself if you have a mental block.  One more point I would make is that if you ALL of you wordy and double space and provide a copy for the engineer and your producer they can follow along while you are singing and make timing or other notes which will save you time locating problem areas that might need to be fixed.

If you are not having to look at the words you can turn down the lights in the vocal booth and visualize your song and put feeling and expression into your vocal.  If you are reading the words you will never be able to put the feeling into your work and it will sound that way.

Even though we have a large TV monitor available, DO NOT read the words off of the TV monitor.  Most of the time they will not be in sync with the music, or depending on how fast you read and comprehend you may not be able to sing them in time.   Knowing your song is very important.

3.  Aside from knowing your song, Pitch and Timing are the most important aspects of any vocal or instrumental project.  If you have pitch and / or timing issues we will let you know and offer some simple suggestions to help you improve them.

It is better to have one song done Wright that you can be proud of than to have 12 songs that sound bad.
