Frequently Asked Questions
What Does It Cost?
Popular less complex songs are cheaper to produce. Obscure
densely arranged songs (like big band / show tunes) will be
pricey! If you want it yesterday - a 25% - 65% premium could
apply. Type of usage may require a different license. Once a
song is booked for production, we endeavour to deliver work
within a mutually agreed time frame. We shall not be liable
for any delays or losses resulting from our inability to
deliver due to factors that may be beyond our control (e.g.
power cuts, internet access problems with our ISP, physical
illness of performers etc).

How Long Does a Song Take To Complete?
We aim to deliver within 3 to 10 working days, subject to
current workloads although rush orders accepted with a much
quicker turnaround time but at a premium. Have more than one
song produced and batch discounts may apply!
See our service agreement.
Q. Do we send you score or printed charts for reference
A. Youtube link/s to the version/s you want is the best way
to submit a song for production.
Q. Do songs have proper gig endings or fade-outs?
A. YES! We do not use fade outs unless specifically asked to
Q. Do you offer custom backing tracks in Multi-track format?
A. We do not as a matter of course - supply our backing
tracks in that format but it is do-able at extra cost. Such
time doing this would be billed at our regular hourly £20.00
/ hour or part thereof.
Q. What is the cost per backing track and is there a
discounted price for a certain number of tracks ordered?
A. Discounts are normally only offered on songs purchased /
licensed from our stock library but on BULK custom work,
there may be some room for negotiation.
Q. Are you using real sounds or midi?
A. Please check out our demos as they answer the question
better. We can go into loads of tech talk but in the end -
it is what is heard that is more important than HOW we get
Q. What format would the tracks be sent in and would it be
send as individual instrument files or 1 working file for
use in pro-tools etc?
A. Again - normally - we supply our tracks as standard
stereo mixdowns at the best quality mp3 - roughly 256 kb/s
or better, 44.1 KHz 16 bit. Separate audio stems can be
generated at hourly rates.
Q. What is the approximate time frame to have a song
A. It depends on factors such as complexity of arrangement,
density of production and current work loads. Block booking
time for your project is possible but there may be a premium
for doing so. It is safe to assume about 3 working days or
better per song. We have been known to turn around on as
little as 3 hours!!!
