A vocal reel with Vocal Demos will be made up of 4 snippets of songs (around 30-40 seconds each), chosen by you, which will be edited into one 3 minute reel. You will also receive the 1 or 2 of the tracks in full, separately.
BEFORE THE SESSION
First things first, you'll need to choose your songs and find your backing tracks (more information on where to get your tracks on our TIPS/FAQS page). If you want bespoke piano or guitar accompaniment to match your sheet music's cuts and keys, these can be arranged at an extra cost. Help and advice on tracks can be given along the way, and I'll need them sent to me before the session, so that I can maximise recording time on the day.
We also need to decide on a location. I'm based in Sydenham, so you can head out to me in Zone 3, or if you'd much prefer to stay at home (and live somewhere in London that isn't too noisy - train tracks, noisy neighbours etc) then I can come to you.
Sessions with Vocal Demos do not have a set time limit, though around 2 hours is usually enough. I only ever do one session per day, so there's always plenty of time to run over or re-record any sections we're not happy with.
If you come to me, which is the most popular choice, I'll be set up and ready with a full kettle boiled - so we can have a bit of a chat then get going!
If I come to you, I'll arrive and set up my equipment in about 10 minutes (giving you time to siren, gargle, whatever you need to do!) then we'll set levels/play with mic placement and get started on the first track! When we're happy with the tracks, I'll pack up and be on my way.
AFTER THE SESSION
Following the session, I'll set to mixing and mastering your tracks, and editing together the reel. These will be sent to you as a mp3s and well as a video showing your headshot, giving you the choice of what to upload to Spotlight etc.
