FAQ

Whether it's for a voice overdub or a full album, we want your recording experience at Echoplant to be an enjoyable and rewarding one. If your question isn't covered in the FAQ, please don't hesitate to contact us.

How do I book a recording time?


Contact info@echoplantsound.com, including all pertinent details about your project (size, length, type) to confirm availability and cost. A 50% deposit will be required to confirm all studio bookings. Your deposit secures your desired time in our calendar, preventing other clients from booking those dates.




What are your rates?


We at Echoplant are excellent problem solvers and are happy to help you, regardless of budget or project size. Contact Matt Di Pomponio or email info@echoplantsound.com to learn about your different tracking and mixing options. The fact that we don't post rates doesn't mean that they're sky high, it's just that there are too many variables (i.e. location, time, engineer, project type) to display in a simple rate list. Please do not hesitate to drop us a line (including project details) to get a quote.




What happens to my files once my project is done?


You will receive your files upon final payment. Once your project is completed and your digital files have been provided to you, we then transfer responsibility for keeping an archive of the files to you, the client. Recording projects take up a lot of space so it is strongly recommended that you bring your own external hard drive. (We can tell you approximately how much space you’ll need based on your project size.)

Many artists play to tracks these days and for that they require stems, which are submixes of the parts of the song they want to play to. Stems are an additional cost, dependant on how many/how long it takes to print, because they are crafted separately from the completed song mix.




Where do I park?


At Studio B: There are 3 parking spots directly in front of the studio. If additional parking is necessary there is plenty of parking 30 yards away on Tyner St. At Studio A: On the street or in the back driveway off of Thomas St.




Do you have instruments I can use?


Yes, we have a constantly growing arsenal of instruments. Most of them are listed here. There is a fee of $50 per day to rent drums (to cover wear to the drum heads.)




Are you accepting interns?


Yes, we are accepting interns. Please forward your resume and cover letter to dipomp@echoplantsound.com.
