About this pro
11 years in business
I'm a guitar player, vocalist, and song writer for over 10 years. I've used Parka Entertainment Studios several times for a variety of musical services; audio recording of live instruments / bands / vocals, mixing, songwriting assistance and production. Parka consistently puts out professional quality sounds. Nick has a very efficient work ethic and has a good positive attitude. Parka Entertainment is a pleasure to work with and I'll be continuing to use them in the future!Apr 21, 2016
I have worked with Nick at Parks for a better half of 7 years and not only is he a talented musician, producer and engineer in his own right, he is one of the most hard working, patient, and fun people to work with. His knowledge and passion for music production is unparalleled and has incredible attention to detail. One of my all time favorite people to work with!Mar 15, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We are always willing to talk about our rates, and definitely try to help and match budgets as often as we can. With that being said, we do offer many different services, and our standard rate is $100 per hour for most standard recording projects. Rates can vary based on a per song, or per album basis, as well as per project depending on what is asked of us. The best way to lock in a rate or a one time payment is by calling us and explaining exactly what it is that you need. The hourly rate includes and engineer and travel expense of the RV coming to you. We do however require half of the agreed upon price of the project up front. And then full payment must be made in order to release all files. We accept all major credit cards and cash.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process starts by going over the project with the the client, and deciding on exactly what the deliverables will be. We answer questions like how much time we will need to complete the project, and what equipment we will need to successfully achieve the goals of the customer. After that we can schedule a time that works for everyone. In order to begin recording, an engineer will arrive at the meeting location with all of the necessary equipment and knowledge to record whatever was agreed upon! All of our recording vehicles are professionally sound insulated and acoustically treated for the best possible sound the room can get. And every project is paired with an engineer that is experienced with the genre, equipment and can handle all of the needs of the customer.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Our engineers have over 40 years of combined experience in almost every genre there is! Most have been educated by real life experience, combined with being mentored by another engineer. Our people are very creative, extremely knowledgeable, and best of all well equipped to handle anything thrown at them. We have never come across a project we couldn't handle.
