How far is the studio from Providence? Boston? NYC?
20 minutes outside Providence
1 hour outside Boston
3.5 hours outside NYC
Can you put bands up for the night?
Yes I can, but actually in my apartment in Providence, not in the studio. I have an attic apartment that can suit most bands. I can put you up for $30 a night.
I hear it's in the woods, are there places to eat nearby, etc?
Yes, Lincoln Mall is actually only 10 minutes away. There you'll find any basic amenities you should need. I do have a fridge, coffee maker, and drinking water available at all times.
Honorable eateries in the area, all within 10 minutes:
Five Guys Burgers and Fries
We need gear, can we use yours?
My gear is here for a reason, and it's part of what you're paying for. I'm happy to let you use it, but if you need something, please let me know in advance so I can make sure it's here.
Will we be tracking live or individually?
This depends on what you're going on. If you want a live feel, no metronome, and a faster recording process, go live. If you're looking to get very detailed with overdubs, want more space in the mix, and are steadily using a click, I say we should multi-track. Each process has it's benefits and drawbacks. Regardless, we'll find what works best for you!
How long will my project take to track?
That really depends on how well you and your band are prepared. Some bands might be able to knock out 10 songs live in one day. Others may choose to spend whole days on individual songs. If you're looking to move quickly, come in prepared, and we'll track it live.
Do you take credit card?
We don't take credit card, only cash, paypal, or venmo.
When is payment due?
Payment is due at the end of each tracking day.
Can we bring friends?
Sure, just depends how many. The studio is not huge, so it can become packed quickly. Also more people, more distraction, more bodies in the way for me, it'll most likely eat more time. One or two is generally fine for an average sized band.
How many mix/masters revisions can we do?
I'm always happy to make one round adjustments afterwards. If additional changes are needed it'll fall under an hourly rate of $25 an hour.
Did this place used to be called "blanketfort"?
Yeah that was the old spot. Blanketfort still puts out cassettes from time to time.
