Welcome to Time Master Studio. We are a full service rehearsal and recording facility located in the heart of Damascus, Maryland. Our mission is to support a community of creative minds and allow them to flourish and hone their craft to the best of their ability. We would like to encourage everyone to join in on the wonderful ways music can change lives, and support the beginning of a new understanding of what it means to create something from nothing.
Whether you want to come in for rehearsal, recording, or come in with friends and just create, Time Master Studio offers an affordable and comfortable experience.
Time Master Studio specializes in band recording. We can track your band live with any degree of isolation, from complete separation to live room recordings. We use great microphones and equipment to capture "your" sound. We work with many styles of music including Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country, Classical and others. We have experience recording a large variety of acoustic and electronic instruments. We welcome experimentation if you have a special creative vision in mind. We can take a project from the "raw ideas" phase to a finished high end production. Quick demos or "Get Me Work" demos, as we like to call them are never a problem.
Singer/Song Writer Recording
Singer/song writers are another Time Master Studio specialty. We can record simple demos such as Guitar and Vocal or Piano and Vocal in a snap. We can also take songs to that high level with full arrangements using either live musicians or electronic accompaniment. We have a smoking hot selection of great session musicians on call. Time Master Studio has many years of experience and lots of patience to coax the best performance out of the artists we work with.
We can help rehearse your artist or band, making suggestions about performance, arrangements, form, technique and song choice, etc... Pre-production is often forgotten and/or neglected by amateur bands and artists even though it is an essential part of the recording process. Many times it's just not in the artist's budget to afford pre-production. We suggest pre-production for any serious recording project. It helps an artist to be fully prepared before hitting the record button and saves time in the long run. Also, this is a great time for us to get to know the client(s) and their material before recording.
If you are a band or artist that is serious about a career in music and have a lot of talent, Music Machine can produce your next record. We will only take on production projects in which we think the material is of exceptional quality. We accept unsolicited demos.
Our Studio is available for individual Artists and Bands that need to rehearse before a gig or who just need to get that extra hour of practice in. We provide all the instruments, mics and cables. To view available times, click here.
Many music students need recordings of themselves for the purpose of auditioning for bands, orchestras, college entrance or special music programs. Time Master Studio can help you record the perfect take to guarantee you land the gig!
These days, a poor-quality 3-song “demo” is no longer acceptable. Independent bands and artists are expected to have a professional sounding, commercially viable recording that they can present to record labels, potential managers, and fans. For artists who are looking to make a long-term investment in their own careers, a great mix is a must.
We can master your material and prepare your final cd for duplication. This includes:
- Song or title ordering
- Taking out extraneous noises at the beginnings and ends of cuts as well as fade ins and fade outs.
- Setting the "blank" time in between cuts.
- Leveling and dynamics - making sure the songs are all the same relative levels and are at the correct level for proper playback.
- Tone color and sweetening - frequency and ambience management to make the material sound its best on a variety of playback systems.
- Preparing the digital files for the cd manufacturer - includes adding "CD Text."
