About this pro

How does your service stand out?

We provide professional services in audio and video production as well as sound reinforcement and web development. Our goal and mission is to provide top quality media services and products at an affordable, reasonable rate. Glenn (the owner) has studied music and music theory since 1973, and has been recording, editing, producing, and running sound for live shows since 1980, plus a lot of graphics and animation. Always learning, polishing his skills in his spare time. Having grown up around a family of successful local musicians, as well as participating in similar musical ventures of our own, we have a direct understanding of the music and video business. Never being a "fan" of the inflated rates some studios charge gave us the drive and ambition to become life long students and professionals in the industry. All this love (and training) for music, video and graphics, lead us to create Cheapsk8 Studios, LLC.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

We enjoy the magic in capturing those special moments of sight and sound in time , and then manipulating them into a finished product, to be heard or seen by all. We take great pride in delivering great professional products without the inflated "professional" price tag that is often found in larger facilities. We are committed to quality and excellence in everything that we do. We offer a comfortable recording studio with a great compliment of analog and digital equipment, and great rates. We are easy to get to and are local to any amenity one could need.

    Great Studio!
    Went here for drum mapping. Glenn was very helpful and easy going throughout the whole process. He gave us the exact product we needed for a fair price. He also has many other services that we plan to use in the future. Great place that provides a great product.

    Awesome studio and pricing!
    Our band was recently in Cheapsk8 Studios recording studio and everything went great! Very nice sounding studio, well treated for sound. The engineer we worked with was very talented, and gave us some great suggestions for one of our songs. This studio keeps its word. We got professional recordings for a very reasonable price. A+++

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We like to "get to know" a little bit about a new client, and about the project to be worked on or created, and what they are looking for from the studio.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Six years of private music lessons, and over 40 years of learning and doing anything and everything related to: music, audio, video, graphics (including web development), electronics and computers.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We have a few pricing plans at Cheapsk8 Studios to help fit all budgets and circumstances.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
The owner and engineer comes from and entire family of professional musicians, which inspired him to also be a musician. He took at home lessons from a professional music instructor for over 6 years (from 8 -14), which taught him how to read music notation, the importance of timing, and proper pitch control. Played the coronet in middle school as well as picking up the guitar, which he still plays today. He has also been a student of "life", always learning all he could about capturing audio and video, as well as editing and production of audio and video. Electronics just seams to come as "second nature" to Glenn (owner), and he has a great understanding of basic, and semi-advanced electronics.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked with so many different types of customers through the years that this would be a very extensive list to type. :-)
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We recently recorded an acoustic band that one of their songs was dedicated to a friend who was tragically killed while riding his motorcycle. They recorded 3 songs at our studio, in one day! We had the finished product to them within less than 2 weeks, and they could not of been happier with the finished product.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The best advice we can give a customer at this time would be to have a good understanding of what their project/s is and what they need from a recording studio, editor, or web developer. They should also have a good understanding of what it takes to make a great recording, or great looking, responsive website.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
A customer should think thoroughly about the requests they have, their projects needs and requirements, as well as the amount of time that could be involved with meeting the needs and/or request/s of their project.
