Q: How can I pay?
A: Paypal is the preferred choice. You can create a free Paypal account in minutes if you don’t have one, and link your credit card to that. It’s a safe, fast and professional system. Anyway, you can pay with debit/credit card as well by clicking on “Pay with a debit or credit card” during checkout. Payments via Bank Transfer are accepted as well (be aware they usually require some more time to be received).
Q: Do you ask for a deposit?
A: Yes. I ask for a 50% up front as a deposit. This model works perfect as we are both committed to each other. I am committed to you with a flat rate that’s not going to change and you are showing me you’re ready to go. It’s fair and works great for both of us.
Q: How does the payment work?
A: When you’re done, just write me a message with your needs and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. After the initial 50% deposit has been received, I’ll start working on your music. The final 50% payment won’t be required until your work is completely done.
Q: What genres do you specialize in?
A: I try to keep my musical tastes as wide as possible, spanning from country to metal. I am most experienced on pop and rock stuff, though. Said that, I tend to approach every song with a fresh mindset, instead of creating something strictly tied to genre conventions. Of course, we can talk about your tastes and ideas and try to point your song towards the direction you want it to go.
Q: How can I send you the tracks?
A: Zip up all the tracks in a folder with the tempo in the folder name, then use WeTransfer to send them to my inbox.
Q: What format should I send the tracks in?
A: Wav or Aiff files recorded at 24bit-44.1kHz work best, but if you do have 16bit files and/or different sample rates it will be ok as well.
Q: Should I send you the original session file?
A: No. Just export your tracks as consolidated files, all starting from the same point in the song. If you want to do me a favor, please name your tracks in a clear way.
For instance, use “SD TOP” or “SNARE TOP” instead of “take18_dup_new.wav”.
Q: What format will you send me the songs for revision?
A: I will send you full-lenght versions of your songs in Mp3 format at 128kbps for you to review it. As soon as the final payment has been completed, you’ll get all the high quality files.
