Live Band Recording Day 20/03/16

Bristol Rock Centre will be hosting a live band recording day at our studio in Mangotsfield on Sunday the 20th of March.

Bands will have the opportunity to create a live recording of their band playing in our rehearsal studio at the very reasonable price of £50 per session, with an option to add video for an additional £20.

This is a quick, cost-efficient way for a new band to get some audio and video recordings ready for social media or to send to potential bookers, showcasing your band’s real sound in a live setting. For those studying music at GCSE or A-Level, this could be in ideal opportunity to record band pieces for a recorded live performance submission.

We have just 5 slots available so please get in touch to book your slot in. Email us on office@bristolrockcentre.co.uk or call us on 0117 379 0379.

FURTHER INFORMATION

  • Each session will last 1 hour and 45 minutes, we recommend that you aim to get 2 tracks recorded.
  • The recording will be completely live with the full band playing together – no punch-ins or overdubs.
  • The video will be 3 camera angles of the same take, synced to the audio track with some basic editing.
  • For an idea of the sound quality of the live sound recording, please listen to the track below – a 3 piece rock band recorded in December 2015 at our studio using the same format.
