Frequently Asked Questions

Bespoke Piano Recording

How much does it cost?

Our Prices start from £40 GBP per individual track for a straightforward recording of pre-exisiting sheet music of standard length (up to 10 pages), but any music is possible, even without the sheet music. - when you contact us for a quote, we will work out approximately how much time it will take and then provide you with a price. That price will not increase unless you specify changes that you didn't mention when originally booking.

Can I request tweaks to a track once it's recorded?

For MIDI recordings, yes, notes can be changed, tempos altered. For audio recordings, unless you specified something originally, and we missed it out, the only tweaks that can be done are to the post processing of audio (e.g. EQ, limiting) Any "new notes" would class as a new recording. If you are giving us 'free reign' on a new track (you may have written, for instance) - we usually provide a couple of recordings for you to choose from. Please note, if you have a definite idea what you want, the safest option is to either send us a demo with a rough outline, or better still, the sheet music/score to work from.

Can we visit and/or book your studio?

- We are an online service, and our instruments and equipment are kept at various locations across Hampshire, and some work is outsourced to our colleagues. We don't currently offer a standard recording studio for visiting clients. We can, however, provide a small mobile recording service for small ensembles. Please email for more information.

How do we book a "session"?

To book a session, we require payment in full up front. This can be made either using a bank transfer (BACS), or we can take credit or debit card payments with paypal (with 5% surcharge). Once the price and Job has been agreed, you will be emailed an invoice. Once payment is received, you will receive a receipt and be given a date by which the track(s) will be completed.

What is your turnaround time?

We aim to get music recorded within 7 days of receiving payment. You will be kept up to date with any changes. If you are desperate for the recordings, please let us know when you book, and we will do our best to get them done as quickly as possible, even if it means working through the night! (which we invariably do!)

Are your tracks covered by a UK PRS license?

Yes, we have a full PRS license to produce music by a third party for permanent download.

Once the recording is made, do we own it?

Yes, you will own full copyright in any sound recordings we provide, (provided you have paid for them!)

What file formats can you deliver?

We can provide files in any file format required (e.g. 16 or 24 bit 44.1 khz or 48 khz wav files, or higher, mp3, flac etc)

Can you provide the final tracks on an Audio CD?

Yes, for a small fee to cover our postage costs.
