STUDIO SERVICES

RECORDING LABEL & DISTRIBUTION: The Perfect World LLC is always looking for quality artists to sign to their independent recording label and distribute product into major outlets both in retail and internet. Perfect World’s Record Label offers our clients a chance to be creatively and musically developed, produced and packaged by our exceptional team. Our management and legal team will also represent and negotiate our signed clients to mainstream labels and international distributors. 

PUBLISHING: Loose Arrow Music Publishing (LAMP) is another department that offers songwriters a chance to sign their songs to our publishing company to be recorded by other singers, bands and musicians. Carl Lucero (Owner) has a catalog of original songs that are published through LAMP. Loose Arrow Music Publishing is licensed through BMI International. LAMP is also signing songwriters to the publishing company that will support Perfect World’s record label. Our management team will also shop our song catalogue to major artists looking for new material.

ARTIST MANAGEMENT: Our management and legal team works alongside of Perfect World record label and LAMP publishing company to represent and assist our signed artists and see that their best interest is looked after in all aspects of the music business.

PRODUCTION: Perfect World recording studio services and fees are determined on a project by project basis. Typically we estimate the amount of time and resources that will be necessary to complete the project and propose a payment plan that is satisfactory to client. All projects produced by Perfect World require a signed contract identifying the fees, costs, timeline and final deliverables. Carl Lucero, owner has been producing since his first recording project in 1980 at age 13. Carl holds a B.A. in music. He formally studied music production, audio engineering and music business at Trevecca University in Nashville, TN, Middle Tennessee State University and Colorado State University-Pueblo.

CD/DVD DUPLICATION: Some CD/DVD duplication takes place in house and will not have to be shipped out to an outside duplicator. For extremely large orders we have several partnerships to get these jobs completed at a great rate. This makes it more convenient for the client and allows for more quality control over the final product. There is also a contract requirement on all CD/ DVD duplications.

IMAGING, GRAPHIC DESIGN & WEBSITE DESIGN & MANAGEMENT: We have the best Image, Graphic, Website and Photography Design team in Southern Colorado. Our team will take a brand new artist and transform them into a true believable artist with competitive visual and commercial success. We are a complete one stop shop for photography, artwork, logo & website design for the artists product merchandise, apparel and marketing materials.


 

FACILITY

Perfect World consists of a 2100 sf studio specially acoustically designed by Rains Engineering with custom built rooms from the ground up. We utilize Protools HDX format with a huge plug-in library. The main digital recording console is the incredible Harrison S 12 with 64 mic pres and 714 input channels. We also have a 1974 PM 1000 that has been fully modded into a Neve 1073 by Old World Audio. We have collected many unique pieces of gear over the years from 1940’s vintage tube mic pres to compressors & limiters from the 50’s as well as our modern cutting edge microphone locker. We love vintage and cutting edge equipment like our SSL 502 EQ’s. This versatile arsenal of gear gives us the ability to turn out truly one of a kind sounding productions. Our clientele reach a wide range from major recording artist & labels around the world to local artists that are in development.

We would be honored to work with you. Lets make music together…
