We record auditions at Rarefied Recording
in North Park, and set up time is in fact part of the time we book. This means if you are auditioning with a jazz trio, your engineer has to set up mics on every instrument. This could include: drums, upright bass, piano etc. Along with miking up the instruments, there's setting up headphones and getting the right recording levels. Keep in mind that this process alone can take approximately 45-75 minutes. Plan accordingly!
