After a first time meet, Jean will advise on how you can make your recording sessions go smoothly and enjoyably. There will be no clock watching and every effort will be made to ensure an excellent result.

Jean Nicolson’s recording studio in Ayrshire.

The studio incorporates the most up to date computer based multi tracking techniques and is home to a range of high spec audio equipment and software.

Jean’s approach is relaxed, friendly and honest: taking you through the process step by step with no previous recording experience on your part required. If needed, Jean will advise along the way to ensure you get the best out of your recording session(s).

At the end of the day, a studio captures creativity and performance. Jean will make sure the environment is right for that to happen.

The studio’s expertise, knowledge and experience extends to solo singers/duos, singing groups, instrumental groups, (classical/easy listening/pop/jazz/folk/acoustic) rather than heavy metal/rock.

The recording studio is situated in Ayrshire. 15-20 minutes from Ayr, Kilmarnock, Cumnock, Irvine. Approximately 30 minutes south of Glasgow.

... ‘You are a jazz/folk/easy listening band/artist and would like

    some tracks recorded and mixed in the studio.

... you are a gigging singer/songwriter/guitarist and want to record your material.

    You would also like some help to develop the ideas in your writing.

... you are a singing amateur but are serious about what you do. You would like to record professionally, but are too daunted by the idea of a     formal commercial recording studio.

... you are a singer, but don’t have a pianist to record with (Jean is also a pianist)

... you are a performer, but find it difficult to get gigs because you don’t have any good recordings of what you do.

... as a songwriter / composer, you've hit a wall because you don't know how to add sonic interest to your compositions and convert your     ideas into a full blown music production.

... you already have the various elements of your track recorded, but need a fresh pair of ears to mix it.

... you would like some recordings of yourself as an ‘improvement’ guide. So you can listen to and evaluate your performance.

... you are the conductor or member of a choir (maximum ten/twelve in the studio) and would like to make a CD to sell at venues or for your

   own personal satisfaction.

... you are an instrumentalist/ensemble performing in a small venue. You would like a good quality stereo recording of your gig done on     location.

... you enjoy performing the spoken word and would like a recording of yourself reciting poetry or narrating.
