HOW THE REMOTE SESSION WORKS
Step 1: Email your WAV tracks along with any chord progressions or notation with your desired requirements for style and sound... You will then receive a quote based on number of songs and expected turnaround.
Step 2: 50% deposit sent via Paypal secures the session, recording of your low end begins - based on instructions, experience and instincts - and in due course, (asap), you will be sent an MP3 rough mix to review.
Step 3: Any revisions are finalised for your approval. When you're completely happy and on receipt of final payment, your professional bass track will be sent to you in Wave/WAV format... :)
