Hey, glad to see all the conversation, I figured I'd weigh in. My name's Dane I'm the guy who started CT, I'm glad to let you know how it works. Weedywet, if you record a single drum track we're going to break even and split the pay with the drummer, the studio, and a little bit for an assistant to consolidate your files, rename the clips, and send you some pictures from your session. At most it takes our clients about an hour to get everything they want from us, usually it's just one or two takes and then any options they'd like to try.
We save a lot of cost on housekeeping tasks because of a custom app that handles all of the scheduling and booking with the musicians + studio + your availability when you submit an order. When we first started doing this it used to take hours to book sessions and communicate with everyone but now it works really well.
We can make money when we record more than one musician at the same time because we only pay one rate for the studio while knocking out multiple instruments. We work out of a BEAUTIFUL studio in Ocoee called Starke Lake Studios.
This startup is only 8 or 9 months old and it's evolving all the time. At our local studio, we're working to make local artist's music stand out but them having their friends play took more studio time, edit time, and didn't contribute much to their records compared to getting a pro. The reality for most of our local artists is that before CT they didn't have the budget for pro live musicians and they'd settle for what they had. At the same time several pro's I knew were short on work and looking at getting other jobs.
Music is something I love to do, and I believe as this grows it will make pro recording accesible to a whole new group of people who wouldn't otherwise have their stories heard at this level. Call/text if you've got any more questions 352-229-4867.
