Remote Music Production Services
Remote Music Production in Scotland and beyond
Our recording and music studios are based in Edinburgh, but using files sharing technology makes music production possible well beyond Scotland – in fact, anywhere on the planet that has an internet connection.
We have been working as a remote music production service using applications like Dropbox (free for up to 2 gig) with artists throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe, USA and as far afield as India and New Zealand.
This works using any music programmes (known as DAW, or digital audio workstation software).
We can work from rough demos of your ideas initially, or complete produced files using any music software programme.
Sometimes it can be as simple as providing a vocalist, guitarists, bassist or keyboard player… or indeed any instrument you may require for your otherwise complete production.
Or we can work on a complete production from scratch using ideas from a demo of your ideas. Maybe you have written your song on guitar or another instrument and you require a full production with musical accompaniment. Whatever your musical requirements we have a fully equipped music studio and the musical skills to translate your ideas into a fully fledged production.
<h3>Examples of remote music production at Offbeat</h3>
The second example was from a song written by Sir Chris Evans. He sent us his guitar tracks originally and we then constructed the production around that using session vocalists Steve Balsamo and Brian Rice and violinist Seonaid Aitken. The rest of the instruments were played by Offbeat producer Iain McKinna.
These are just two examples of remote music production but working this way can work in just about any combination.
Here’s how to help us get the best out of your work if you are sending over a remote music production that has been originally recorded in your own music software platform (DAW).
- When sending tracks, or mixes always start at the head of bar 1, even if the musical parts don’t occur until later in the track.
- Include any tempo information, including tempo changes. As long as the tempo is set and all tracks begin at the head of bar 1 then everything will sync perfectly.
- Also provide any clock information if it deviates from the normal 44.1k setting. On film projects this would be 48k.
Of course you may not need our remote music production service but you are welcome to come to the studio yourself to work on your productions.
