Abbey Road Studios in London has launched an online service in which users can pay to upload tracks to be mixed by engineers at the studio made famous by the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Radiohead. Prices for mixing will start around $800 for recordings with up to 24 tracks and $1,200 for up to 48 tracks. The studio will also offer mastering services for $140 per track.

Though artists using the service will get the prestige of working with Abbey Road engineers, they will not be working directly with engineers in real time. Accordingly, musicians will be required to provide a great deal of information and instruction along with their tracks.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
