Got questions? We've got answers...

What does Tunedly do?

Tunedly is an online music recording studio, that connects songwriters and other music creators with world-class session musicians, and music publishing services.

Do I retain all rights in my song?

If you produce a song with Tunedly, you retain all rights. Even if you hire a composer through Tunedly, you will own all rights of the song, including the composition. We operate on a strict 'work made for hire' basis.

Can I bring in some of my own tracks during mixing?

You are more than welcome to provide some or all of your own vocal or instrument tracks. Please note, we do require professionally recorded, studio quality files from you for best results.

I'm new to songwriting, can you help?

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 on the Tunedly app if you have any questions. Tunedly offers add-ons for lyric, melody and song compmosition.

Where are you based?

Tunedly is owned and operated in Los Angeles, CA. We have staff in New York, Colorado, Australia and Canada, as well as session musicians in almost every state and from around the world.

How many musicians do you have?

Tunedly currently works with over 100 session musicians, singers and engineers, allowing us to produce music in any genre and style.

Do you offer payment plans?

All music production and recording projects have to be paid in full upfront. If you want to record a full album, you can order each song, one at a time and spread out your payments that way.

Can you guarantee song placements?

Nobody can guarantee placements or contracts in the music industry. If anyone does, don't walk away... run! We guarantee that all parts recorded by Tunedly are of professional, studio quality and highest industry standards. We may sign your song to a publishing deal but you will have to submit it for consideration as a finished product. No amateur recorded home demos!

Can you help me write a song?

We can certainly help you write your song. Simply place a production order and our staff will help you with the entire process from writing to composing your music, if needed. If you don't have finished lyrics, a finished melody or finished chord progression, please be sure to add lyrics, melody and song composition to your order. For a fully produced out track that comes with everything you could need including support and face-to-face creative discussions - the same as you would get from working with a top Hollywood music producer - please add the 'unlimited production' add-on so that we can fully build out your track with hundreds of tracks and tuned/comped vocals resulting in a track that's to a high-end release standard.

How much does it cost?

Prices range from $250 for a single instrument all the way up to $800 for a full band production. Feel free to check out the 'Create a Project' page to get a better idea of pricing: https://app.tunedly.com/app/create-project

How many revisions do I get?

Every project comes with one round of free revisions, with small tweaks or changes after that being considered on a case by case basis to prevent misuse. Each project utilizes extremely talented musicians working on your song and Tunedly believes musicians should always be paid for their time and talent. Whilst we understand art is subjective, and we endeavour to work until you have a track that you're delighted with, we cannot offer never-ending revisions for no extra charge as regardless of the outcome we believe musicians should be paid for their time and talent and our low fees do not cover multiple changes per project.

How do I know your session musicians provide studio quality recordings?

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.

How do I communicate with the musicians?

You can leave messages directly on the project management page to all musicians involved in your project, and your project manager will keep you up to date with the project as progress is made. Please note that making music is a time consuming process and it is wise to have patience during the creative and production phases of your project. Once you have paid and submitted all required information to begin your project, you can trust that we are on it, negating the need to ask for updates every day on your project chat. Instead, use the chat to talk about your creative vision, what song references would be helpful, how long you want the song, the BPM, the key, the genre, or other general notes that will help the musicians get as close to your vision as possible. They are there to bring YOUR vision to life, so the more information you provide the better! This isn't a 'coaching' session for you, so we do not offer 'training' or help in understanding music (we recommend the wonderful service 'Studio' if you want to gain musical training from professional musicians, or even just watching YouTube videos about music production and songwriting). Remember, Tunedly is a service to help take over the incredibly difficult process of sourcing high-quality professional session musicians who will add to your song ideas, whether that's just an idea, or a fully produced out track you have made that you just want someone to play a real, live guitar for. No matter the type of project, Tunedly's role is to be a partner to help manage this challenging process, finding musicians, collating together everything from multiple sources, and putting it all together to mix and master the final track as per your brief.

How long is your turnaround time?

This depends on the capacity of your project. Single instruments usually take between 2-5 days, while full song productions with 5+ instruments and multiple vocalists take 2-4 weeks.

Can you help me with composing?

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. Simply include the add-on 'melody composition' if you need help with melody, and 'song composition' if you also want someone to write, arrange and compose the chord and structure of your song.

Do you offer refunds?

If you ordered your song after January 1st 2024, there are no refunds available on Tunedly projects. This is because regardless of the outcome, musicians must be paid for their work, and if someone does not like the final result (given all art is subjective) it does not take away from the fact that real musicians have spent countless hours working on your project, and it is unfair to expect them to work for free. We will however take time to understand your vision and do everything we can to ensure you are provided with a final result that you're absolutely delighted with. Our team are the highest quality professional musicians in the world and we are confident that you will be provided a professional level track, and that is the service we are offering. We cannot guarantee that you will be subjectively happy with your track, but we can guarantee that it will be a professional, quality and musically coherent final product.
