Q:

So if I buy an 8 hour session, how does this work? Do I call and see which dates are available? Also, can I choose the TIME of the session: ie: 12PM - 8 PM?

Rich M.  asked on  Feb 19, 2012

A:

Yes, call and request what date you want and if avail we can lock it in. Our studio is open Mon thru Sat noon till 10pm. Closed Sundays.

Q:

This is Maury, and thank you for your answer. But to elaborate, all I want is to take out Bing's voice from my CD, and let me sing the same song as you record me doing so. (P.S. If Michael Bauble and Harry Connick have an audience, surely a baritone voice like Bing's has an audience too...) How difficult is that, and what additional (?) does that require?

Maury S.  asked on  Feb 19, 2012

A:

Hi! This isn't an issue of an audience.And thank you for explaining your needs further. If you have the layered tracks without vocals we can do this very easily. Otherwise we cannot strip out the vocals of a regular mp3 because it effects quality of the song because it's already mastered. It won't sound proper because the vocals will be much louder than the music. We can try it for sure if you would like but I can't guarantee you will be fully satisfied.

Q:

Are the Groupon details good for weekend sessions? Also - we're an a cappella quartet - we have all our music learned and ready to go. If we figure on maybe a few takes for each song, how many songs do you think we could record in a half-day session and a full-day session?

Steven K.  asked on  Feb 19, 2012

A:

Hello. Treehouse is closed on Sundays. I can not answer the question on how many songs you can do in 4 hours. It is different per artist and all depends on how fast you and the producer work together. I thought A Cappella meant no music? So if you come in with no music and need to just do vocals, it would go a lot faster than having to track music.

Q:

: I have a baritone voice similar to Bing Crosby,and all I want is to bring his recording and after you listen to it, record my singing the same song So no "writing" of new music is involved. Also, can one organ/synthesizer play a piano sound while pressing a button that gives drum brushes sound as occompeniment. Is that feasable? (P.S. I only want to record 2-3 songs, which 4 hours would be suffiecent time).

Maury S.  asked on  Feb 19, 2012

A:

Hello. I am not sure I understand your question. Are you asking if we can create piano sounds and drum sounds? The answer is yes. However, if you are looking to record 2-3 songs in 4 hours, do you plan on playing the music? Or are you asking the producer to learn these songs and perform them while you sing over them. OR are you bringing in the songs of Bing with his voice stripped off and you will just sing over it? Sorry, I am just unclear on your question and want to make sure I am clear before I respond further.

A:

Hi Maury. I just spoke to my producer. This is a special situation and will not be valid for this groupon. This groupon is for those who have their material ready to go. We will not be performing or creating music on anyone's recording. If this is a service you do want, we can provide it for you but it will not be at the groupon rate or through groupon. I'm sorry.

Q:

Typically how many songs could a 3-piece or 4-piece band finish at good quality with the 4 hour option?

Andrew L.  asked on  Feb 19, 2012

A:

Hi there. I would say probably 1. If you have all of the music done and nobody messss up one of the takes possibly 2.

Evangelia L.  from  Merchant  replied on  Feb 19, 2012

A:

Again, this is very hard for me to answer. Recording is all relative to each individual artist. There is no way I can determine how many songs you can finish in 4 hours having no knowledge on what you will be recording, style of music, how prepared you are to record etc. It all depends on how fast you and the producer work together.

Q:

Can I record narration voiceover for a documentary or audiobook? Will you edit? Add sfx?

Betty S.  asked on  Feb 18, 2012

A:

Hi! Yes you absolutely can! The only thing is that we haven't done sfx before but I spoke to the producer who said he's willing to try. Hope that helps!

Q:

Can you fit a full big band? 5 sax, 4 bone. 4 trumpet. Piano bass drums guitar Joe v

Joe V.  asked on  Feb 18, 2012

A:

Hi there! We actually have a piano in the studio. We can fit a big band, we actually had a band with 16 members come in and record 5 songs and it was a lot of fun. However, we had to track and set up each group of instruments separately so it took some time. I am not confident we can get you all loaded in, tracking etc in 8 hours time. Again it depends on what you are recording, if its one song it may be doable but more than that I think will need more time. I would hate for you to buy the deal and not be happy because you didnt get what you hoped for in 8 hours. However, because you found us on Groupon, I am happy to work out a discounted day rate for multiple days so you get done what you need to. Or you can buy the day rate, and then schedule more days separately with me and I can schedule it all in one block of consecutive days. I am very flexible with whatever you would like to do, I just want you to leave happy, so I needed to be honest with you that a big band may take up more time than the 8 hour deal offers. You can always email me at evange@upinthetreehouse.com and we can discuss what you are looking to do and I can give you cost and see if it fits your budget.

Q:

Hi, I spoke with Evangalia earlier today regarding my quartz crystal singing bowls and the e-mail address I have is not going through. I believe I am probably spelling her name incorrectly. I would like to send her the information we discussed. If possible, please forward this e-mail to her and ask her to reply with the correct address. I am sorry for the bother. Your efforts are very much appreciated. T Love, Energy Therapist tblove@embarqmail.com

Q:

If I choose the 8 hour package do I have to use it in one day?

Angela L.  asked on  Feb 18, 2012

A:

Hello. Yes you have to use the groupon 8 hour session in one day. If you need to schedule more time outside of the groupon we would love to have you back. We can't offer the same deeply discounted rate but we can definitely work in your budget pending your needs.

Q:

Do you supply music as well?

sandra g.  asked on  Feb 18, 2012

A:

Hello! Unfortunately not for this groupon deal. That would be a writing session and not included in this deal. You must come with the music and lyrics and everything else ready to go. We do provide writing sessions in blocks of 4 days. 2 for writing and 2 for recording if it's a number of songs. If that's something you are interested in we can definitely accommodate you but it will be a much different rate than the groupon deal. If you would like to speak further you can email me at evange@upinthetreehouse.com and we can discuss your needs and I can give you a quote. I'm out of the office for the weekend but will be back in Monday. I hope we get to work together!

Evangelia L.  from  Merchant  replied on  Feb 18, 2012

A:

Also, I should mention that because you found us on Groupon I will be able to give you a good discount should you want to come in and have music written to your lyrics. We are very flexible and want to work with you and make you happy so please email me and let me know how many songs you have and we can figure it out!
