You can see our packages, prices and how the service works here – freevocals.com/custom-vocals
1 – Decide
Which vocalist is suitable for your track? Which custom vocals package do you need? Do you need the vocalist to write original material or record from guide vocals/lyrics? Do you want to share the royalties from sales or buy out the vocal recordings? Just ask us for more information if you need advice and we will be happy to help.
2 – Deadlines
If you have a deadline for the vocal recording, let us know and we will advise if the vocals can be provided in that timescale. Every project is different and there may be a waiting list.
3 – Discuss
Fill out the contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reply within 24 hours. We can answer your questions and discuss agreements and recording fees. There’s no obligation to proceed until you’re ready and we’re happy to work within your deadlines. Please provide detailed instructions if you have any specific requirements for your project.
4 – Record
Original Vocals: We need your audio track as an .mp3, or .wav file. If you have any specific ideas or references for inspiration, then send them in your instructions but our vocalists can write for you from scratch if you need.
Specific vocals with guidance: We need the audio track as an .mp3, or .wav file with guide vocals and/or lyrics (Please provide guide vocals on a separate track) Note: you must have proof of clearance to use any copyright material, for example if you want us to record a cover of a copyright work.
You will be sent an invoice for a 50% deposit before our vocalists start recording: Payment is accepted via PayPal or BACS payment.
5 – Reasonable Changes
You will be emailed an initial mp3 demo for your approval. Then we can discuss any reasonable changes that you need and the vocals will be adjusted as necessary. Some examples of unreasonable changes would be changing the backing track, bpm or the key after the finalised instructions or requesting changes in dynamics or style that were not originally specified. Please be as detailed as possible with your instructions and listen to examples of the vocalists voice to make sure they are suitable for your track. Our vocalists only accept custom vocals projects that they feel confident they will be able to deliver quality vocals for.
6 – Final Take
When the vocals have been finalised, they will be sent to you by email as raw/dry 24Bit .wav files after the final payment is received.
