1. Get in contact to discuss what you need and to obtain a quote. You can contact me via email, the contact form, phone or Skype. Those details are in the top bar at the top of every page.
2. Send me an MP3 or WAV of your guide track. If you have a guide bass line send me that too. If you don’t have a guide bass line then no problem.
3. It’s helpful for me to know the BPM so I can set up a click. Have a little think about any references you might want me to listen to. The more info you can give me, the easier the process. Of course, if you have no idea what you want don’t worry: it’s my job to come up with something great!
4. I’ll now set up your session in my DAW and have a listen. I’ll select the bass I think will do the best job (or you tell me what you want) and will record 2 to 3 takes as standard. I like to give you options so will usually play something solid and simple and then something with more flair and movement. The resulting takes should give you plenty to choose from. You can either choose one take or comp a bass line together from your favourite parts of different takes.
5. When I’m happy with what I’ve come up with I’ll send you a link via Dropbox to download the files. You can then import them into your DAW and give them a listen. At this point, you either have what you want or you will give me some feedback and I’ll make the necessary changes.
6. If you’re happy you will pay me at this point via PayPal. Please note that I charge the small fee that PayPal issues for transactions. At that point, we have finished the process. It is very simple really and I do this full time so have lots of experience and lots of time to do a great job. If you need the bass recording quickly that is no problem. My quickest turnaround has been 30 minutes when a client urgently needed a bass line before presenting a track to a record company that afternoon!
