We all know how devastating the pandemic has been for the music industry. We employ most session musicians full time and hold all sessions remotely. We're actively trying to create more opportunities to revitalise the industry, safely. You're directly making a difference, while taking your music further than ever before.
Are you a talented & dedicated session musician, with a quality home studio, looking for a full time position? If so, you can apply to work with musiversal here.
With the 14 day free trial you get exactly the same unlimited benefits as you do in the full subscription membership. You can book an unlimited number of recording sessions with all of our session musicians and you can invite as many people along to your livestream sessions as you wish. Our mission is to empower music creators to make more music, whether you're on a free trial or fully subscribed.
The intention with the free trial is give you a taste of what value we're providing, with enough time to experience the recording sessions in order to empower you in your decision to subscribe or not.
When your 14 day free trial is over, you'll be automatically registered into the paid subscription, which costs $99 per month (this is a limited time offer and we'll be increasing the price of the subscription to $199 next year). You will automatically be charged $99 and payments will be charged monthly thereafter. If you do not wish to register for the paid subscription, you may cancel during your free trial by contacting us by email at email@example.com, or by instant chat.
If you cancel your membership during the free trial, you will not be registered for the paid subscription and therefore you will not be charged when your free trial is over.
Upon cancellation during the free trial, you will have access to musiversal's services up until the end of your free trial.
The moment you subscribe, you'll be able to book recording sessions with all of of our session musicians, as far in advance as you wish. That's right - unrestricted access, no limits.
Our mission is making music production 10x cheaper and easier, thus empowering music creators to make more music. We want to help you turn your unrealised tracks into the realest, best music you've ever produced.
Once you're subscribed, you can start booking in sessions and start recording, just as you did in your free trial. You can also invite as many friends, family, colleagues and clients to join your recording sessions as well, so they can watch the magic happen and follow your music journey.
It's a monthly rolling subscription, which means you're not locked in to a yearly contract and you can cancel at any time.
In a world full of noise and confusion, we've decided to keep things simple. That's why we only offer one pricing tier: unlimited access for $99 per month. This is an exclusive launch offer and next year we will be raising the price of the subscription to $199 per month.
We accept payments from PayPal as well as from all major credit and debit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, AMEX, Diners, CUP, JCB and Maestro.
To cancel, please contact us. You can do this by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or talking to us via the instant chat.
Your subscription will still be valid until the end of your monthly subscription period. That means your upcoming sessions will still be booked in, and you can still book new sessions until the end of your subscription month. After your subscription month expires, you will no longer be able to book recording sessions and any sessions scheduled beyond your subscription end date will be canceled.
If you change your mind after you've contacted us requesting to cancel, and instead wish to keep your subscription, just let us know and we'll resume it for you.
We employ our musicians full time and part time, on monthly salaries. We pride ourselves on paying above and beyond union rates as well as above the average salary of the musicians' countries of residence. Because our musicians are employed on a part time or full time basis, it means they can focus on what they do best: playing and recording music for you. That means they don't spend time doing sales or other admin work, and it's also the reason why we can charge just $99 for the musiversal subscription!
Every session musician has a professional home studio setup, with industry standard equipment - which includes instrument gear, microphones and software. You can find each musician's specific gear list on their profile.
Our session musicians are typically available for recording sessions any time between 11am and 8pm (BST) on weekdays. Individual musician schedules may vary by instrument and you can find these by visiting the musicians' profiles and starting the booking process to see the full calendar.
You can book recording sessions 36 hours ahead of time. So if it's Monday 9pm, the earliest session you can book is Wednesday 9am.
Remember that we'll send you your session streaming links 24 hours ahead of the session, so you can share the links with your friends, family and clients and give them enough time to plan ahead, and join you for the magic.
You can book sessions up to one month in advance.
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 Audio Movers for a high quality audio feed. Every session is 30 minutes long, which we've found is plenty of time to record 2-3 full takes of a typical 3 minute song.
The way it works is simple: 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.
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'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.
During the session, you'll be able to meet and chat to the musician, direct the recording and do a couple of full takes, as well as any overdubs if time allows. You'll receive all of the files directly in your email inbox within 24 hours after the session.
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.
Every session is 30 minutes long, which we've found is plenty of time to record 2-3 full takes of a typical 3 minutes song. There'll also be time at the start to get acquainted with the musician, and time to wrap up at the end.
Every session is held remotely over livestream. Of course, we understand that nothing beats the real experience of being in the studio. But we've done our absolute best to make sure that your experience is as close to that as it possibly can be, and it's definitely the safest way to operate during the pandemic. Our employed session musicians have a full, professional recording set up in their home studios, and we use the best quality video and audio streams out there.
With your subscription, you can invite your friends, colleagues and clients to join the recording session as well! Everything combined, our subscribers have said that the remote sessions are not only safe (a must-have during these times) but that the experience is just like being right there in the studio.
Unlimited. Sounds ridiculous, but it's true. Book as many recording sessions until you're heart's content, and your music fully realized!
Yes. You can book as many remote sessions with our musicians as you wish. You can even book sessions with multiple musicians at the same time! We really mean it when we say unlimited.
You can book a session no matter what stage you're at with your track. It can even just be an idea or a simple voice recording. Our musicians will help take your idea and turn it into a reality.
We’ll request more info about your track, such as the title, bpm and a reference track. We’ll also provide you with a link where you can send us your music files, which you'll need to send us at least 48 hours ahead of the session. 24 hours before your session, we'll send you the livestream links - which you can forward on to any guests who you'd like to attend.
When you book, we'll ask you to provide a few details about your track as well as request your music files. Specifically, we'll ask about the style of your piece, for a reference track and other details like the length, settings (bit depth/ sample rate) and BPM. In addition to your files, this is everything we need to know in order to fully prepare our session musicians to record on your track.
We accept WAV, AIFF or MP3 files. Please supply us with clearly named stems. You will need to provide multi-tracks that are consolidated or bounced from the start point of your song (bar 1 beat 1 or start time code). All files must be of the same duration, sample rate and bit depth.
All you need is Zoom (to join the video live stream during your session) and a good internet connection. You can download and install Zoom here: https://zoom.us/download
You will be able to listen to the high quality audio feed directly from the artist’s DAW. It’s like you’re right there in the studio - no sound compromise! We currently use AudioMovers software, which is well recognised and respected in the industry. To access the audio feed, you just need to click the link we send you, and it'll open up directly in your browser.
You can invite an unlimited number of guests to join your live recording sessions! We'll send you the session links 24 hours beforer it starts, which will include a Zoom link for the video feed and an Audiomovers link for the audio feed. So, your guests will need to have Zoom downloaded to attend the session (the audio link simply opens up in a web browser). We recommend that you and your guests join at least 5 minutes before the session is due to begin, to mitigate against any technical problems and to ensure that your session gooes smoothly without any undesirable interrruptions.
We believe in and recommend keeping clients informed with work in progress, similarly to David Heinemeier Hansson and Jason Fried' recommendations (2013 - Remote, Office not required). That sharing work in progress only strengthens the shared feeling of ownership and fosters a better collaboration.
That said, it still depends on your working relationship and your way of doing business. Our musicians are top professionals and you can count on us delivering on our end.
You may, and we recommend that you do! Every recording session is a really cool experience. Your music is being realised in front of your eyes, and played by incredible musicians. So, feel free to share any screenshots and recordings on your social media. If you tag us @wearemusiveral, we'll reshare to our own following and help grow your audience even further.
We strongly recommend that you do your upmost to be on time for sessions, ideally joining the Zoom and Audio links at least 5 minutes before you're due to begin. In the event that you're late, your session musician will have already started recording on your track. They're schedules are tight and we want to ensure we're providing maximum value for you, using your scheduled time to the full, whether you're present or not.
Yes. If you'd like to reschedule or cancel your upcoming session, please let us know at least 24 hours before the session, by contacting us at email@example.com, or by instant chat. If you do not inform us at least 24 hours before the session, we will assume that your session is going ahead as planned.
After your recording session, we'll send you stems of every recorded take in WAV or AIFF format (whichever you prefer). You'll receive all of your files directly to your email inbox, via Google Drive, no later than 24 hours after your session.
