Sizzlin' Studio Special
If you need to create a new recording or transfer old ones, Jasir Productions is an excellent choice for high quality digital audio.
For live concerts and recordings made in night clubs, churches, theaters, office buildings, etc., our thirty-plus years of experience in recording events on location will help you produce great results.
My standard rate is $50 per hour for tracking or mixing. I am pleased to allow clients to book ten hours of studio time for $400. Your session can be booked Monday through Friday for any hours between 10:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. A five hour session in this time frame can be done as well, provided that we allow time for a thirty minute break. Sessions starting at 4:00 p.m. are available at the regular rate. To take advantage of this $100 discount, the session must be paid for at least two days in advance.* I don't require that the person paying for the studio time be the artist or company who attends. In other words, someone may buy a block of time as a gift for someone else.
One of the best features of recent renovations is the installation of a comfortable and acoustically excellent recording booth. I originally created the booth in preparation for tracking drums on a client's jazz guitar project. It works great for vocals. In fact any solo instrument will record well in this new space. The studio is also equipped with an 88-key controller (the M-Audio Keystation Pro 88) and an excellent set of acoustic and electric piano samples. A Yamaha PSR-550 keyboard with a very good palette of XG sounds is available. There is also a Peavey TNT 130 instrument amp, excellent for bass. There is space enough to comfortably record a five piece band, and drummers are welcome to use the studio kit. The drum kit is always mic'd BEFORE a session starts, so the band doesn't have to wait around twiddling their thumbs for that process. There is also a pair of Gon-Bops timbales, a conga drum, and a few pieces of hand percussion (shakers, etc.). See below for a link to audio clips, including clips demonstrating the drum sound.
Another feature, very useful to movie producers, is the monitoring system set up for discrete 5.1 surround sound. Using Logic Pro and a fair investment of mix time, a good surround sound mix can be generated for the creation of an AC-3 file. There are six sets of high quality headphones, two of them wireless. But clients are welcome to bring their own headphones if they have a set they particularly like for tracking or mixing.
Other production services include high resolution transfers to digital audio from LP's or 45 rpm records, audio cassettes and even the old 8-track cartridges. In fact my 8-track player has discrete quadraphonic outputs. There is also a Sony HandyCam. Clients are welcome to bring Mini-DV tapes to record video of their session(s). Video can be sync'd with the audio recording system, so when performers are recording overdubs they can watch video of the performer(s) who recorded the first track. I have found this to be very useful for getting better timing in the music during overdubs. In a band setting, the drummer is usually the best candidate for the video, since we tend to flail our arms around more than other musicians.
Telephone contact is 901-385-0236 (Jeff Rust). If you call while a session is happening, the voice-mail will answer; please leave a message, and I will get back to you soon. Below is a quick list of some of my credits as a producer and a link to some sounds recorded in the studio.
*NOTE: Payment for sessions may be made with debit or credit card via PayPal. A 2.9% processing fee applies to card payments .
