Frequently Asked Questions
We answer your questions about what experience you can expect here at 3dB Studio:
- What are your rates? -This is a tricky question, with and equally tricky answer: We will do our best to produce a quality product based on your budget. We have many options available and will find a package that will fit your needs and budget.
- What kind of music do you record? -We can record any type of music. Our general focus is Rock, but that's not a limitation.
- What are your credentials? -Years of real-world experience and formal training. Each person on our staff has unique qualifications in their field of expertise.
- What kind of equipment do you use? -We are a predominately PreSonus studio. We have a great selection of very high quality microphones too! See the "About the Studio" page for more info.
- Where are you located? -We are located in south-east Aurora, in a nice, quiet neighborhood.
- I want to record with you, how do I start? -First step is to make an appointment with us. We'll get together in the studio and discuss your project.
- Why do you require a sit down first? -It's for both our benefit. If we're not a good fit for you, it's best to know that up-front. This initial meeting also sets all expectations for each other and helps us understand your vision for your project.
- Can I hear a sample of work you've recently done? -See that little player at the bottom of the web page? Click that:)
- What can I expect as we record? -You can expect to be treated like rock stars! We are professionals and will conduct ourselves as such. We will provide honest feedback during your sessions. We won't necessarily provide creative input (unless requested), but we'll let you know if a re-take is needed.
- How long will the recording process take? -That's another tricky question! It'll take as long as it takes:) Seriously, if you are prepared, it won't take long. If you are not prepared, it'll take a long time. There are also other processes that can lengthen or shorten the recording time and that can be discussed in the initial meeting.
- What is the difference between live streaming and a video production? -Live stream goes out as you perform...mistakes and all. Video production is when we take all the source video and edit it for the best product. This takes longer, but it's worth it!
