The preferred way (also the easiest, quickest and most cost-effective) is for me to take your brief (record a few dummy lines if required), and then self-record and self-direct from my personal studio. Afterwards, I will send you the files via WeTransfer – a free service that allows users to send and receive large attachments. This is my most common way of working.
The final way is to record at a studio of your choice. This method is potentially the most time-consuming and expensive for both the artist and the client, due to the additional costs involved in getting to and from, and hiring, an external studio. If you’re looking for a quick turnaround, the ‘preferred way‘ really is the best.
