INFO:  
 

I've been recording in my small basement studio in Upper Darby, PA for about seven years now, starting recording my own music, some friends, and I'm looking for more folks to record. This is a very casual setup - like I said, it's a basement studio (in my parent's basement, this is the real deal here!). I'm a huge audio nerd and I know a ton about recording techniques, mixing, and producing, and I know my equipment really well. My personal style is definitely toward the indie rock kind of thing so I'd love to get more of that in here, but I'm really up for most anything. I've got experience with many forms of rock (indie, progressive, metal, math), as well as acoustic singer/songwriter, ragtime, and more. I can do up to 24 channels simultaneously. That can be any number of setups:

  • Full band recording at once
  • Individual parts recorded separately (start with one instrument, add another and another)
  • Record the basics together (drums and guitar, drums bass and guitar, etc) then add more from there (overdub).

Or any combination of that. I'm a multi-instrumentalist as well and am experienced with writing and adding guitar, bass, drum, or other parts, so solo artists can come in and leave with full-band instrumentation on their songs. When a session is done I can send you rough mixes, but I'm happy to get things mixed and sounding awesome over the following couple days.

I do have a "you break it, you replace it" policy (which unfortunately means there has to be a simple, basic, no-fine-print contract for this, which you can download here). I've been majorly burned before) - everything in my recording space has come out of my own pocket and I don't have spare funds to replace things. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at jesse.gimbel@yahoo.com

 

 
 

 
RATES:  

 

My rate is $175 for a day, $100 every third day (three days is $450, 6 days $900, etc). I'd also consider audio/instrument gear trades (eg. tube amps, good microphones, good outboard gear). So send me an email, let me know about your project, what you're looking for, etc, and we'll set something up!

Mastering is $150 for EPs/6 songs or less, $200 for 7+. Rates for bigger projects can be discussed. I discount for material recorded here.

A day here means as early as works for both of us (generally around 10:00 or 11:00am, going until a logical point to stop for the day. Generally people have stopped around 3:00 or 4:00pm, but we can go later. Louder things have to stop around 6:00 or 7:00pm because this is a residential area and I want to be respectful to the neighbors.
