RECITAL RECORDING TYPES:
 Stereo Audio Recording
Includes full resolution, edited WAV audio files delivered via digital download. These recitals are recorded in stereo format
using the hanging stereo microphone systems installed in MSM performance venues.
 Multi-Mic Audio Recording (Multi-track)
Includes a multi-microphone setup, full resolution, edited WAV audio files plus WAV audio files of each individually-recorded
microphone track, all delivered via digital download.
This package is available for recitals that take place in Myers Recital Hall, Bossi-Comelli Studio and Miller Recital Hall and is
intended primarily for jazz or contemporary ensembles that require a multi-microphone (or close-miking) setup. This package is
subject to studio, equipment and personnel availability.
•
Multi-Mic recital recordings that take place in the Bossi-Comelli Studio are subject to a $50 setup/break down
surcharge.
 HD Video + Audio Recording Package
Available in Miller Recital Hall and Mikowsky Recital Hall only, the single-camera video and audio recording package includes
edited HD MP4 video files plus WAV audio files delivered via digital download.
•
PLEASE NOTE: Recorded recital video files will only be held by the studio for 30 days following the delivery of the digital
download link. Students must download and review all material to their home computer within 30 days.
EDITING & FILE FORMAT:
FOR ALL AUDIO RECORDINGS:
Individual pieces and movements will be edited into separate files and named using the printed program available at the recital, as
long as there is a discernible pause between movements and pieces. Movements that are not separated by pauses will not be
individually tracked. All audio files will be delivered as full-resolution .wav format at 24-bit/48kHz.
FOR ALL VIDEO RECORDINGS:
All video recordings will be edited into individual video files for each piece or song cycle in its entirety (not into individual
movements) using the printed program available at the recital. All video files will be delivered in full-resolution, 1080p .mp4 format.
RECORDING VENUES & EQUIPMENT:
Myers Recording Studio can audio record student recitals that take place in Greenfield Hall, Pforzheimer Hall, Myers Recital Hall,
Mikowsky Recital Hall, Miller Recital Hall and the Carla Bossi-Comelli Studio. Myers Recording Studio cannot record recitals given off
campus or in Room 707.
HD video recording services are offered in Miller Recital Hall and Mikowsky Hall only. Myers Recording Studio does not offer video
recording services in any other halls at MSM.
Myers Recording Studio does not provide any audio amplification support or equipment for student recitals.
RECORDING DELIVERY AND ADDITIONAL COPIES:
You’ll receive an email at your MSM email address to let you know when your recordings are ready to download. It generally takes
5-7 business days to edit, master and produce recorded recital media. During the peak performance period of March through May
however, production will likely take longer.
•
By signing up for a recital recording, you consent to having all digital, file-based audio and/or video recordings delivered via
a download link sent directly to your MSM email address.
Myers Recording Studio has committed to delivering the highest-quality recordings possible to the students and community at
MSM. Therefore, all recordings are delivered digitally in full-resolution format. Physical media such as CDs and DVDs are available
for purchase at an additional cost by completing a Recorded Media Copy Request Form following your recital, available in Room
312.
•
Due to copyright and licensing restrictions, Myers Recording Studio can produce a maximum of 3 CD or DVD copies of any
session, recital, or MSM performance.
RECORDING CORRECTIONS:
It is your responsibility to listen to and review your recordings and notify the recording studio immediately of any problems. The
studio will make any possible corrections, subject to studio approval, within 30 days of your initial receipt of materials, free of
charge. After 30 days, you will be charged a $20 fee for corrections you request.
LATE REQUESTS & CANCELLATIONS:
Recital recording requests that are received and honored with less than four weeks’ notice will incur a $70 late fee.
Recital recording cancellations must be made directly to the Recording Arts Office in Room 312. Notifying the Scheduling Office
that you are cancelling your recital does not mean that you have cancelled your confirmed recording service with Myers Recording
Studio. Students who cancel their confirmed student recital recordings with less than four weeks’ notice will be charged a $50
cancellation fee.
Transcripts and student records will be withheld if there is an unsettled account with Myers Recording Studio.
MSM AUDIO RECORDING POLICY:
All concerts, events and student recitals at MSM are audio-recorded and engineered by the Myers Recording Studio facility and its
staff only. Personal audio recording is strictly prohibited. Violation of this policy can result in school sanctions.
MSM VIDEO RECORDING POLICY:
Students can use the services of MSM’s Recording Arts Department to professionally video record recitals that occur in Miller
Recital Hall and Mikowsky Recital Hall, or, elect to personally video record an MSM student recital in any venue using a single
camera on a tripod or a smartphone/tablet. Personal video recording of student recitals must be done in accordance with the
Equipment & Venue Policies and Personal Use Terms of Agreement outlined in the Recital Confirmation Packet.
