If you have instrumental music you would like to record to, please bring it with you on a CD, flash drive or email it to The easiest way is to join a shared Dropbox folder. You can place your instrumentals in the folder, and we will have it ready for your session. Contact us to set up the shared Dropbox folder.

We also have instrumentals for sale or lease. Contact us to gain access to our available instrumentals.

Your instrumental can be any file format, but Wav or Aiff files will be the highest quality and what we prefer. You can also provide multi-track stems in Wav or Aiff. We can work with mp3s as well, but we encourage you to supply a higher quality format. Your final product will sound better, and you will be happier.

We encourage you to schedule a separate session devoted to mixing. That way you can listen to it and make notes about how you want it to sound. We can mix your music the same day, but it’s good practice to have an engineer approach your music with fresh ears.
