What is a session and how do sessions work?

Live-streamed remote 30 minutes recording sessions.

musiversal provides remote recording sessions which are delivered by our employed session musicians. Every session is held over livestream, using Zoom for the visual feed and Audiomovers for a high quality audio feed.

You must use headphones for a good session experience.

During the session, you'll be able to meet and chat to the musician, direct the recording and do multiple full takes, as well as any overdubs if time allows.

Here's an example

How long is a session?

Every session is 30 minutes long, which we've found is plenty of time to record the equivalent of 2-3 full takes of a typical 3-minute song. If you didn't have enough time to record all the takes you needed, your unlimited subscription means that you can book in another session whenever you're ready.

How it works

1. Book your session
All you have to do is choose the instrument you'd like recorded on your track, then select one of our musicians to deliver the session.

2. Send your materials
Once you've scheduled in the session date/time, we'll request for you to provide some information about your track, as well as to send us your music files. You must do it up to 24 hours before the session, in order for the musicians to prepare for your session.

3. Receive your session links
You'll receive the video and audio livestream links 24 hours before your session is due to begin, so that you have enough time to invite your friends and colleagues to join the livestream.

We will also email you with the session links 1 hour before the session starts.

4. Enjoy your session
The magic moment arrived. The 30 minutes where a musician is making your music come to life, and you're connected through live-streaming technologies.

5. Receive your files
You'll receive all the files directly in your own Google Drive folder (and notified about this by email) no later than 24 hours after the session.
