FAQ – GIFT EXPERIENCES

Here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions about our Gift Experiences

Just ring us on 0131 556 4882 to book in for your experience. Please have your voucher number ready (printed on bottom right of the voucher). Go here for more information.

2- How many songs can I do?

There is no limit to the amount of songs you can record but we usually find that to make a good recording, it can take around one hour to record a song.

We record a few takes and then edit together the best parts from each take. The song then needs to be mixed and CDs printed.

If the session goes quickly then it’s a good idea to have back up songs ready.

3- I’m not a trained singer..is that a problem?

Not at all, all you have to do is enjoy singing. We will help to make the recording go smoothly and ensure that it’s a good experience for you.

4- Can I bring other people along to my session?

Every voucher includes two participants to take part. The maximum that can take part is six people.

You can bring four extra people along to watch for no charge. But we don’t recommend putting yourself under too much pressure by inviting too many people along.

Yes that’s not a problem and we have a selection of instruments on hand. It can take a bit longer to make a recording with instruments as opposed to singing to a backing track.

Yes as long as they quote the number on the voucher anyone can use it.
