Music Production

Since founding Offbeat Recording Studios & Music Production in 1992, Producer Iain McKinna specialises in recording and producing singers, songwriters & solo artists who've needed varying degrees of  help in putting their songs and music together. You can find out all about our music production services on this section of the site.

As we can only take on a limited amount of productions every year, it's important that Offbeat is the right fit for your music, and vice-versa. You will need a budget of at least £1200 for the full production of a song. 

You can listen to a variety of productions on the music player below. If you like what you hear, please send your demo (however rough) along with what you wish to achieve as well as your plans to promote your music to

Music Production

The Offbeat Music Production service run by Producer Iain McKinna is ideal for Singers, Songwriters and Solo Artists who require professional help with their recordings.

Maybe you just want tracks with your own unaccompanied performances. Or perhaps you're a singer or solo artist who requires full musical backing for your songs.

You could even be a lyricist who needs all the music to be created around your own vision for your ideas.

The Offbeat style of collaborations with artists, to produce music for a huge range of projects, has been consistently tried and tested over years.

Remote Production

We've recorded artists remotely since 2002 with creative people from as far as New Zealand, Australia, Africa Russia, Europe and the USA.

We've worked very successfully this way with Singers, Songwriters and Solo Artists using file sharing technology and with Sound Whale, Zoom and Skype.

There are so many possibilities that Offbeat has explored working like this. We can bring in session musicians from all over the world to bring a wealth of talent for your music, if required, wherever you are on the Globe.

Session Musicians

As well as working on your songs and being able to provide instrumentation in house, we also have access to session musicians who we have worked with over the years from all over the planet.

They also have their own recording facilities and can hook into the Offbeat studio on projects we work on with you for your songs and compositions.

Whatever instrumentation your music needs, we can find the right people for your project

Remote Production at Offbeat

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.
