Budgeting Your Recording Session

How to plan for a recording session: Budgeting your time and money in the recording studio

When you talk to one of In Fidelity’s engineers, you may find that we ask a lot of questions about your music. We do that so that we can help you plan your recording and help you get the best sound possible in the shortest time. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to recording. Some people want to capture a live feeling and some want a slick, studio-produced sound. Every recording and every budget is a little different. Some people have a couple hundred dollars and others have thousands of dollars. Some people simply need a clean recording to get club gigs and others are releasing their album through a label.

We suggest you meet with us before your session in order to plan your session time and prepare for your recordings. If you tell us your goals and your budget, we’ll outline your options and plan an appropriate session. We won’t promise you a radio-ready album for $100, but we’ll tell you what you can realistically expect and we’ll play you samples of recordings done on your type of budget. It’s nice to hear examples of the most polished work to come out of a studio, but it’s also important to hear things recorded and mixed in the style and level of the session you are planning.

Budgeting your recording session is a critical part of the recording process.  Let us help so that everything can go exactly like you want.
