Here at A Sharp Recording Studio we understand that not everyone’s budget is the same. Some clients want an engineer, others have one or are a Freelance Engineer themselves.
We’ve had Recording Artists and Freelance Producer/Engineers that have tracked several songs in a day or taken days just for the rhythm parts. It’s all down to required results, time available and budget.
Whatever the project, we’ll try and work within your budget and offer discounts for those looking to book several days.
