If you’ve been considering using an online recording studio to record your new song, here are the 5 top reasons why we think you should record online with Sundown Sessions…
1) It’s Cheaper
You might be considering recording at a friend’s home studio or maybe buying the gear to record it yourself to save some money. There are actually three things that make up the real cost of a recording besides the price. These are Cost, Quality, and Speed. In the real world you can only ever get two out of the three. A recording that is cheap and fast, won’t usually be of high quality. If you want to track it quickly with great quality, it’s going to cost you. Here at Sundown Sessions we have worked hard to provide all three of these requirements for artists aspiring to record online. We have Quality world-class producer, session players, and mixing & mastering engineers. We can do it Quickly because the musicians don’t have to schedule a day to all be in the studio together. Lastly, we can get these incredibly talented pros much cheaper than you can. When considering the price, remember that it really means Cost, Quality, and Speed.
2) It Sounds Better
It’s great your buddy recorded your new song for next to nothing in his bedroom studio, but it may not have turned out the way you had hoped. If you are thinking of trying to go beyond making an album for friends and family, then you should consider the sound quality of your recording. Our session players have played with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Sarah McLachlan, among others. We can give you that major label radio-ready sound for a similar price of going down to the local studio, because we have much less overhead and some of the world’s best recording talent already works for us. There are no better reasons than that to record online with us.
3) It Takes Less Time
Experience means a lot when it comes to getting great studio sounds quickly. While you may have a clear idea on how you want your song to turn out, it is a different story getting there without an experienced ear to help. For example, most of us could probably build a custom deck on the back of our house with enough time to figure it all out. It’s probably best though to hire a knowledgeable contractor who can build it over a long weekend.
After you have a final master of your song, it’s time to think about getting it out to a wider audience. First impressions are everything. Listeners who hear your song for the first time are going to judge it in the first few seconds. If your recording sounds as good as anything in their song collection or on the radio, it will give you instant credibility. Top notch quality will also say to a label rep or booking agent that you are a serious artist and someone they should listen to. Record online with Sundown Sessions and you will get that pro sound, on top of the fact that we already offer a free service to shop your song to TV & Film supervisors!
5) A Great Producer Makes A Difference
So you have a great song that everyone loves around the campfire. It doesn’t mean that you should necessarily record it that way. Some musicians translate best with a minimalistic approach, but most songs really benefit from more extensive production. Good music production takes the approach and feeling of the song and amplifies it. Whether it’s the perfect guitar hook, a beat that’s right in the pocket, or a string arrangement, a great music producer knows how to bring out the depth and emotion of a recording. Have a listen to our Before & After demos to hear the incredible difference great production can make to your song.
