Frequently Asked Questions
What is Tunedly?
Tunedly is an online music recording studio, that connects songwriters and other music creators with world-class session musicians, and music publishing services.
How long is your turnaround time?
This depends on the capacity of your project. Single instruments usually take between 2-3 days, while full song productions with 5+ instruments and multiple vocalists take 2-3 weeks. These estimates apply to Professional productions. Demo productions take a minimum of two weeks.
How do I know your session musicians provide studio quality recordings?
For Professional productions, all of our session musicians are vetted. Many of our session musicians have advanced degrees from highly respected music schools, won Grammy awards or were part of Chart topping productions in the past. With Tunedly, you can be sure to always receive studio quality, highly professional music production services and you will always know who exactly is part of your project. You can even choose the musicians yourself. For Demo Productions, you will not be able to choose your musicians from our roster and we may outsource parts to applying new session musicians as part of their vetting process.
Do you offer free modifications?
Pro Productions come with one free modification per instrument track (e.g. if you have a song with 4 instruments, you get 4 modifications, one for each instrument).
How do I communicate with the musicians?
You can leave messages directly on the project management page to all musicians involved in your project. You can also live chat or even video chat with your project manager. Simply discuss a time that works for you and your project manager through the project management message board and you can discuss your project and jam live with us!
I am not very experienced in music, can I still use Tunedly?
Absolutely! Our clients range from full time professional songwriters and music producers to beginners. At all times, your dedicated Project manager will be with you, guiding you through the process. You can leave messages, chat or even video chat with him/her if you have any questions.
What if I only write lyrics, can I still use Tunedly?
Of course you can. Some of our clients are lyricists with limited music knowledge. Our roster of session musicians and in-house production team can help you to create a melody for your lyrics.
Will I give up any rights?

What is the difference between a Demo Production and a Professional Production?
