The most frequently asked questions and answers in the forefront of productions

  • LOFT

    Everything about the recording studio in the LOFT here

  • Recording: All together in one room or as separate as possible ?

    Both work well, and both have different advantages and limitations. We can best discuss this in advance.

    Simplified, you can say that anything that sounds balanced together without using amplification in a room can also be recorded easily in one room without needing much acoustic separation. In most cases, this even works completely without headphones.

  • How much time should I calculate for a production ?

    Of course, there is no general answer to this question; it depends on many factors:

    • Number of tunes
    • Difficulty and demand
    • Preparation
    • Lineup
    • ...

    Basically, the better the preparation, the faster it goes. This is not only noticeable in the recording, but especially in the editing (cutting, correction of intonation and timing, etc.).

    Very many jazz productions take 2 days of recording, 1 day of editing and 2 days of mixing. Some productions are much shorter or longer - a big band production is more time-consuming than a duo.
    This is best clarified in a personal conversation.

  • How much does the production of a CD cost ?

    This is the same question as "How much time should I calculate for a production" ;-)

  • Discount

    If you look around a bit, you will notice that our hourly rates are already calculated very favorably. We do not offer flat rates, discounts or the like.

  • Revisions - I still have a few small change requests ...

    No problem. Our mixes can be accurately restored at any time. We charge revisions at the normal hourly rate.

    It is recommended to collect all revision requests to save time and money.

  • Dates

    At the moment we are usually booked several months in advance, but sometimes we can still find short-term slots.

    If, in addition to recording, editing and mixing are also required, it is best to arrange these dates directly with the recording dates - especially if you are bound to a release date.

    A time gap between recording and mixing is useful to be able to select the best takes.
