THE STUDIO, AND HOW WE DO THINGS

Professionalism and quality is a standard  at Shugga Beets Productions. 

It’s a core value that is instilled in both the production and it’s owners. From day 1 appointments will be made to meet the clients in person to discuss all formalities involved in rates, your studio time, and how the process will be carried out legally and properly to officially determine your music, is your music.

A Service Agreement  will be went over with you by the sound engineer and signed by the end of the session if you wish to receive our services, further recording sessions will be scheduled and everyone will end their day highly satisfied!

This ensures that all material you perform and release after it is recorded is copyrighted to you and whoever else signed the service agreement. This also ensures the sound engineer gets paid from the sessions attended.

Not only does this save us space, but it's just as easy (if not, easier) to utilize our digital audio workshop as our mixing board.  Workflow is the key our quick yet effective execution here, and Ableton Live is all about it.

With Session View, we can mix any project of yours with ease, and just a few clicks of a mouse.  While at the same time having Ableton's arrangement view open to keep an eye out for out of place transients, and so much more!
