Q: what is kollab?
A: Kollab is a marketplace for musicians, connecting producers and musicians all over the world. We help musicians find the right professionals to create music and finish their songs to a professional standard. You could also think of us as an online recording studio.
Q: how does kollab work?
A: Our professional musicians and producers work remotely, either from their home studio or an independant recording studio. This means they can record their parts for you without needing to be in the same town or even country. All files are delivered as HQ Wav files through our secure servers.
Q: who uses kollab?
A: Kollab is a service for musicians who are looking for professional session musicians, audio engineers or producers to help them finish their songs. We also get commission work from companies and individuals working on jingles, soundtracks, adverts etc. We have even had orders to record songs for birthday greetings and wedding gifts. Basically, if you need original music recording we can help.
Q: does kollab work with unsigned artists?
A: Yes - unsigned artists are a huge part of what we do, as we make major label talent accessible to anyone without having a huge budget. The digital age has made it possible to work with artists and producers who have experience at the very top of the music industry. We provide a safe, reliable platform to get radio standard performances and production.
Q: where are you based?
A: We are based in the UK, and are proud to be the first UK based musical marketplace and online recording studio. However, our artists and customers are based all over the world - that's the beauty of remote recording!
Q: how does the order process work?
A: You can browse our artists and view their profiles which will have biographies, credits, equipment, audio and video examples. Once you find a musician, producer or vocalist you are interested in you can message them directly about your project for a free quote. You can also send your quote to multiple artists or have us do this for you. Once you have found someone who is a good fit, you will be sent a private link to place your order securely on the website and the work will start. Your files are usually delivered within a few days for your approval, and you can request one free revision to the final delivery. Our artists usually keep in touch direct throughout the order process to make sure you get exactly what you want.
Q: how do I know i will get a quality recording i'm happy with?
A: All of our artists are professionals that have been vetted and quality checked before being accepted onto our roster. Many of them have major label experience and credits as well. Remember, we are not a freelancer marketplace like other sites you may have seen, where anybody can create a free profile and start selling. Such sites are a lottery and work is not vetted, so people who are serious about their music come to Kollab. Every single order is guaranteed by us to deliver professional, radio quality results.
Q: why should i hire through kollab rather than work with the artist direct?
A: The reason our service is so valuable is because we provide a safe platform for you to hire with confidence. As a legitimate business and registered company, we have to comply with strict data protection and payment protection laws, keeping your information and payments safe. As soon as you deal outside of the platform we cannot support you if an order goes wrong or does not get delivered. It's also worth remembering that our artists receive reviews for their work, so any order through Kollab will always be handles with priority so there is no chance of negative reviews. The last thing to remember is that we are a service provided by musicians for musicians - we are here to help you and work with you to create the best music possible, and with our industry contacts and expertise it makes more sense to work with us that without us.
