Great demos at a great price - The process: I ordered 4 demos through the website, by e-mailing Jamie Graves (site owner) with attached lyrics and. Mp3 files, according to the guidelines on his site. Within a few days, Jamie called me to confirm and discuss the songs I submitted. He initially sent me sample demos for me to approve or disapprove. After I approved the samples, he scheduled recording dates for all the necessary singers and musicians involved. I then sent payment by check, although he also accepts PayPal. After the artists recorded the songs, Jamie mixed them. He then e-mailed them to me in. Mp3 format.
The price: Demos can set a songwriter back quite a bit. Of course, I wanted more than simply a signer and a guitar; I also wanted the bass, drums, and so on. So, naturally, I searched around for the best price with comparative quality before committing the money. The average price I encountered ran around $400 per song, which would have cost me $1600 for four songs. For all the features I mentioned earlier (singer, lead guitar, guitar, drums, bass, keyboard), Jamie charges $229, a whopping $171 savings compared to the average price. Factoring in four songs, I saved a total of $684.
On a different note, songwriters can purchase additional features. For example, those concerned about the free e-mail delivery of the songs can order a hardcopy CD, sent by physical mail. Jamie also offers performance tracks (a singer might want a performance track on which he or she can record his or her own signing voice), additional instruments, and song review.
Quality: I didn't want to severely sacrifice quality for a low price; otherwise, my own low quality records would have satisfied me. After comparing sample before and after clips on numerous websites, I determined that Jamie's demos were at least as good as those of his more expensive counterparts. I truly enjoyed the final versions of my songs; it was great to hear them break beyond the limits of my own skills.
Overall: I would highly reccommend affordablerecording.com to the serious songwriter on a budget in need of quality demos. The process is painless, and the ultimate quality of the songs pleased me very much.
