What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
- We meet over the net or phone
- In some cases we do a pre-production meet up at the studio to get aquainted and discuss the project
- Tracking is scheduled (sometimes multiple sessions)
- When tracking is is complete mixes are done in unattended sessions. Tracks are shared via Google drive or drop box
- Mix revisions occur
- Mastering is final step
The exception to this may be shorter Hip Hop/Rap session for instance where all of this is condensed into one 2-3hr session.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Learning is constant in this business, and good taste rules (something that cannot be taught). The 10,000 working hour rule to master your craft certainly does apply and there is no substitute for on the job experience. Listen to professionals music examples, let your ears tell you the truth.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We work with independent solo artists and bands (3-10 people). We work with everyday people, those who just want to record their ideas from themselves, to those looking to break it big. We offer not only recording but producing and collaboration. We have been recording for many years and have a multitude of artists available to play instruments or sing in sessions on a for hire basis.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It is important for clients looking for a recording studio to feel comfortable with whom they are working with. Music is a very personal and artistic process, you are vulnerable with your music and we do what we can to make each project personal to the artist and make them feel at ease. Comfort with your producer, engineer and the studio itself is critical as that comfort level will come out in the music! South Sound Sound is clean, spacious and inviting.
