Audio: These are supplied as high bitrate stereo MP3s. WAV can be supplied for additional fee depending on quantity of order. Multitrack Audio WAV is not normally a delivery option but fees are negotiable depending on quantity or order.

How Much Does It Cost To Produce A Song

Charges vary depending on duration, complexity or simplicity or arrangement, density or sparseness of production, obscurity or popularity of song which affect resale value etc.

I have just completed Wilson Pickett's Land Of a Thousand Dances for a client and that came in at just shy of 130.00. I have produced an epic 17 minute Pink Floyd song 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond and there was not a lot of change out of 350.00 so it really depends. Even a song with just piano could be costly if it is complex yet a song with a four piece may come in at half that. Hard to say until I have heard what one has in mind.

I've Just Paid - Where's My Order?

Please note that we operate on a first in / first out basis. All items are processed in the order in which they are received.

As we do not use an automated delivery service at our website, all orders are presently handled by real humans. This is important to note particularly if your order is placed at 4:00 am GMT in which case, such an order would be processed about 5 or 6 hours later.

Why Can't I Edit the MIDI Demos?

All demos are time-base disabled for some obvious reasons. 'Some' song file demos contain enough data to recreate the full song again - we would prefer that you just purchase the full version. All PRODUCTION files i.e. full versions ordered are fully editable and are in sync with your sequencer's metronome. * Demo files are for listening purposes only. They must not be used for any other purpose.

How are HMS backing tracks produced?

First the original is played and beat calculated in Cubase.
The actual original is imported INTO the project being produced.
Hitpoints are carefully programmed so that Cubase follows the original tempo - variations and all ...
Once the hitpoint positions are verified, the tempo track is 'flattened' so the song maintains one tempo.
From there, one or two bars at a time are produced on each track starting with drums and other base tracks.
Finally, 'sweeteners' such as strings, brass, harps and other orchestral components are performed.
The process continues to completion before final processing like event length adjustment, velocity checking and deletion of doubles. The reference track is deleted AFTER 2 weeks if producing for custom for a client just in case there are any discrepancies or other issues.
