FAQs

Frequently asked questions

How much is a recording session?


Recording is $40 an hour. There is a two hour minimum on ALL recording sessions with the only exception being at the request of the producer.




Can I book an hour of recording time?


No. Our producers will not be rushed into giving you an unprofessional product. All recording sessions are required that the artist and producer be present for two full hours so that no details are left overlooked.




Can you mix something that I recorded at another studio?


Yes, however the tracked out session files are needed for the producer to put a professional mix on the song. An additional fee is added to a piece of work not recorded in Janga World Studios due to our standard of quality.




Can you master something that I recorded at another studio?


Yes in most cases, if you have the tracked out session files. Any things not recorded at Janga World Studio carries and additional fee.




What is the difference between a mix and a master?


A mix in the concept of “chopping up” a song adding things included but not limited to effects, drops, and auto tuning. Mixing a song can be imagined as mixing a bowl of cookie dough, during a mixing process the piece of work becomes equalized meaning that the voice and instrumental come together as one easy listening tune ready to “be baked in the oven” A master is, “the baking in the over”, it puts the finishing polish on the piece of work. Mastering includes referencing a songs quality on seven different devices to be sure that the high pitches and low pitches of the song are the same throughout the entire piece of work. Mastering can take hours to weeks depending on the complexity on the piece of work.




Does my song need a master?


Remember when we referenced cookie dough? Sometimes you can eat cookie dough without putting it in the over, but if you put eggs in your cookie dough, you really shouldn’t eat it until it’s been baked. For a piece of work that includes singing or will hit the market as a high quality song (to be sold, on a album, or put on media outlets), we suggest you get it mastered. If you are just looking to put out content at a very fast pace, or creating a piece of work for something you don’t see longevity in a mix will suffice.




Can you download my song off the Internet?


No. All music needs to be brought on an external drive or emailed to wearejangaworld@gmail.com 24 hours before the session.




Do you do graphics for cover art, albums or logos?


No, we create info graphics for promotional purposes only on Instagram, FaceBook, Twitter and Snap Chat. For all detailed graphic work we will refer you to a trustworthy business.




Do you use ProTools?

Do you accept any payment other than PayPal?

Once I purchase a beat will it be removed from the site?


Only if you purchase exclusive rights. Any other leases will remain on the site and will still be owned by Janga World Productions.




What happens if I buy a lease and someone purchases exclusive rights? Will I still be able to use it?


Absolutely, by purchasing a lease you automatically receive a digital contract that grants you rights to continue use of the beat as long as the contractual agreement are not voided however you will not be able to upgrade your license.




What are track outs?


It means that ever sound of the beat (drums, snares, high hats, instruments, samples, vocals, etc…) will be separated in high quality WAV audio files also known as STEMS. This is extremely beneficial because now your audio engineer will have more control over the editing , mix and master process of the beat for the best sound possible.
