The Recording Process // Pricing 
How Remote Recording Works

Every session is different, and every client should feel confident their vision will come through in a recording. To do this, Paul offers multiple recording packages for you to choose from. Each package will get the same attention and professionalism in the take, and each package includes a variety of microphones running. Sessions will usually include more mics than necessary to provide as many options as you may need in order to feel confident you can find the sound you want despite not being in the same room at the same time. Mic setup and drum sounds can be requested in your performance notes, or Paul can work with you directly to get the exact setup you want in the Deluxe package. For examples of Paul's playing, head to the Music or Videos tab.

Step 1: Pick the services you want

Recording packages are built for convenience and offer standard services artists may need. However, sessions are completely customizable by adding on services from the selection offered, or you may contact Paul if you have something in mind not listed below. Choosing services ahead of time aids in budgeting for your recording, and you will not be surprised with unexpected charges to your session.

When browsing through the selections below, note that Paul offers discounts for multiple songs and some packages offer different add-ons!
