FAQ

  • Do you guys charge money to make corrections to my songs I recorded with you?
    If the corrections you require are "coach based errors" that could have been corrected during the time you paid for, then you will not be charged. (These are usually mixing issues such as "I hear some pops or clicks in my song", "the song is too loud/quiet overall", etc.) If you want changes such as a coach to remix it again, or anything that was not paid for during the recording session, you will then need to utilize our FIX MY SONG service. (These are usually requests to add beat edits, vocal effects, create an open verse, show mix, clean version, etc.). The time you reserve is what you're paying for. That is how we are able to keep our rates so affordable for you guys while having some killer, top of the line equipment and amazing staff members. This means that we do not typically go back into songs after the session is over & "mix them down more" unless there is a coach-based error, or the corrections are being paid for. During the time you reserve, the Enviyon staff member you are working with is all yours to utilize for whatever service you need. But they are going to follow your direction because you're the one paying for the time. For example, if you have a 1 hour session & you spend 55 minutes recording in the booth, then your engineer is realistically going to have less than 5 minutes to mix. Leaving just 5 minutes for an engineer to mix is not always going to yield you the best results for your art. Take our word for it, don't rush the process. So make sure you A.) book the proper amount of time you need, and that you B.) allow the engineer enough time to mix your songs to your liking. THE MORE TIME YOU GIVE US TO MIX, THE HAPPIER YOU WILL BE WITH THE FINAL PRODUCT, WE GAURANTEE IT!
  • Will I receive a copy of my music when I finish, or can you email me the songs?
    The days of leaving the studio without a copy of your music are over. Not only will you leave with your music in hand, but we will email your songs at your request at no extra charge on the same day. Doesn't get any better than this!!
  • What recording software do you guys use to record? And, do you have effects such as Auto-Tune, vintage sounds, etc?
    Although there are many recording software options, we primarily use Pro Tools. We have found that its common use by consumers makes it easier to import sessions our clients bring to us to edit. On a regular basis, we produce those same sounds that you are describing. We have all the latest plug-ins, and know how to make them work for you!
  • What is an Enviyon Coach? Why don't I see anything on your site about engineers?
    All of our Enviyon Coaches are audio engineers! But they're so much more! We train our staff to not only engineer your music, but to help guide you and your music where it needs to be, as well as getting the best out of you as an artist. Almost all of our staff members are musicians and/or producers. Therefore, we all push each other to bring the absolute best results out of every client. We realize that recording a song is a team effort, and every team needs a coach. That's where we come in!
  • If I recorded a song, and I didn't like the coach, can I get a free redo with the coach I want?
    Unfortunately, once a reservation/session is completed, the coach who recorded you is credited for that session. In the future, you should book your preferred coach by visiting https://www.enviyon.com and viewing our engineer calendar, which will show you the dates, times, and studios that our coaches will be working. Or you can get this info by calling to check their work schedule so you can book with them. If your song was mixed poorly, you may submit the "Fix My Song" form stating specific issues, and those errors will be corrected by a staff member at no extra charge to you.
  • Can your team produce clean edits, show mixes (only chorus, no vocals), and extend beats for other features that may want to get on a song I did?
    YES, YES, and YES! We can clean any song as long as we have the instrumental as well. Show mixes without main vocals must have the session files, or at least the instrumental if you cant get the sessions. If you're just using the complete songs, just make sure you know how long you need the entire show mix to be. (For example: 8 minutes of on stage time). Extending a beat is no problem, just tell us how long you want it. Check out https://www.enviyon.com/fixorsendmysong
  • I recorded in your studio a while back and I want to make corrections to my music. How much will you charge, and do you still have the songs I did?
    All music, vocals, and tracks are kept in our secured hard drives and can be accessed by one of our members. We keep the session files for that reason... in case you want to redo a part, but not the whole song. The rates are the same and the amount you pay will depend on how much time you need. Check out https://www.enviyon.com/fixorsendmysong for pricing info on these sorts of changes.
  • Do you guys offer mastering services for music?
    Yes! We offer both analog and digital mastering options for your music. You can check out our rates for this service over at https://www.enviyon.com/mastering
  • If my reservation starts at 12:00 p.m. and I get there at 12:15 p.m., what time does my reservation actually start?
    Your time begins, not when you arrive, but when the booking was originally reserved. You will lose studio time and we can not guarantee an extension of your session time due to other booked sessions. Be on time!
  • Hello, can we shoot a music video in your studio? I have my own camera man.
    If you cant have fun with your music, what's the point? Yes, we allow music video recordings in our studio and you only pay for the time you are there. This is no different from normal recording session rates, as long as you don't break anything! This applies only if you are using your own videographer. Rules: We do not allow any types of weapons on the premises. This includes prop guns, real guns, knives, etc.
  • What are the prices for the studios to reserve a room?
