FAQ's:
1. How soon after my session will the final product be available?
This depends on the scope of the project.  For rock bands and larger ensembles, please consult with DWP Productions in order to come up with a timeline. 
For college pre-screening, supplemental, audition, competition, and virtual recital recordings, we ask that you book your session at least 5-7 days in advance of your due date for videos, and 3-5 days in advance of your due date for audio only.  Of course, rush services are available, but there may be additional charges.

2. Which Package is right for me?
We have tried to come up with packages to accommodate every situation.  If you are unsure, go ahead and book the package that you think you need.  There is always the opportunity to discuss modifications or changes with DWP Productions before, during, or after your session(s).  Keep in mind that the packages are designed to include everything that you need for one set price - setup, use of instruments as needed, editing/mixing/mastering, etc.
We are glad to book hourly as well, but hourly bookings do not include setup, instrument rental, and editing/mixing/mastering.  When studio time is booked hourly, these services will be billed a la carte at the standard rate.


3. The rules for my audition/competition state that I am not allowed to edit.  Why do I need to pay for editing? 
When we talk about editing, mixing, and mastering, we are not necessarily talking about changing anything in the playing.  While editing very well could entail fixing a variety of playing errors, it can also be the process of adding EQ, light plug-ins, and generally working to achieve the best recorded sound possible.  It will still be the player's natural playing, just made to sound the best that we can make it sound.  Mixing and mastering are also essential in final products in order to create proper balance, levels, and tone quality.
