West3 Productions can be used for a variety of recording applications. We specialise in:
- Voice / vocal reels - General vocal / backing and vocal tracking - Drum / keyboard programming - Audio editing and mixing
Since reforming in 2007, British rock band FM have recorded 90% of their vocals here for their four critically acclaimed comeback albums, along with keyboards and acoustic guitars.
Got a great song idea that you want to demo but don't have experience in recording / arranging?
We'll gladly help you turn your idea into a finished demo or, if you wish to take things to that next level - a fully mastered and broadcast-ready finished song. We have an incredible pool of exceptional musicians who can be hired-in to fulfil your song's full potential.
We favour recording using Cubase Pro 8 but can open and track sessions recorded in Logic Pro if required. If you don't use either of these platforms then we can still easily work with your standard WAV files produced by any other DAW. We have an extensive array of plug-ins including a full complement from the amazing Steven Slate.
FM Wildside (Extended Mix)
Vocal Reel Package: £98
Whether you're a seasoned pro or relative newcomer we want you to be relaxed and at ease when recording your vocal reel so you can concentrate on giving the best performance possible.
This package gives you four hours studio time. We would suggest picking sections of 4 songs that showcase the different aspects of your voice and vocal range. We will record these sections and when you are completely happy with your performance we'll edit them and mix them together to a very high standard.
Once you are happy with the finished reel we'll provide you with an mp3 or wav.
- To facilitate the recording of your vocal reel you will require backing tracks to record to. There are many sites which can help but we recommend Karaoke Version. Please feel free to contact us should you require help in sourcing backing track material.
If you are looking to update your voice reel or you are just starting out and hoping to secure the services of a voice reel agent, this package is a very cost-effective way forward. As with our vocal reel package we want you to deliver the best performance possible.
Here we offer four hours studio time for you to record a few short pieces of script.
Once you are totally happy with your vocal delivery the remainder of your session will be used to apply music / background effects as required.
Once your session has finished we will edit your reel together in a polished, professional manner including all music and effects. The finished reel will then be emailed to you ready to be added to Spotlight / CCP etc.
