Q: Why would Vocal Tracks produced by an outside Third-Party not always match the sheet music I purchase from studioDH?
A: studioDH only guarantees the vocal and instrumental tracks produced by studioDH. studioDH has no quality control over vocal learning products produced by outside Third Party track makers, as the track makers do not consult with David Harrington to verify what they recorded is what studioDH publishes. When studioDH suggests outside Third-Party vocal tracks for a DH arrangement, it is only a suggestion (not an endorsement) with no guarantee that those third party tracks will match the studioDH sheet music, exactly. You can ask a track maker if they will edit their tracks to match the sheet music you have purchased from studioDH, but that decision will be theirs and they may charge an additional fee for their time to make the edits.
You may enlist David Harrington’s services to listen to the vocal tracks you’ve purchased from a third-party, and compare them with the sheet music you’ve purchased from studioDH. You will then be provided with a written (PDF) comparative analysis report which you can then provide to the track maker, or keep for yourself. The amount that studioDH charges for this service is on a case-by-case basis. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about a quote.
A: When studioDH indicates that an arrangement is contestable, that means that the arrangement (chords and form) are acceptable for barbershop competition (ex: BHS, LABBS, HI, SAI, etc.) (note: some exceptions may apply for SAI contest). Please note, however, that the actual performance of any contestable arrangement will determine how well the “arrangement” scores. Arrangements listed as contestable barbershop are not necessarily endorsed as being suitable for every group. Questions: Contact Us
A: First, determine how many copies of EACH TRACK (most group members receive copies of multiple tracks) you will reproduce for your group members, then select the corresponding number of copies – rounding up.
A: Mechanical Licensing Fees are collected to pay royalties to the copyright owner for audio recordings of a Work. The current cost of Mechanical License Fees is 9.1 cents per copy and you must pay for a minimum of 25 copies. The minimum cost is $2.28 per song.
If the song is not in the public domain, then the copyright owner of the song is also the copyright owner of the arrangement. When a song is in the public domain then the copyright holder of the arrangement (in most cases the arranger) owns the copyright to that arrangement, and is entitled to royalties.
A: The current cost of Mechanical License Fees is 9.1 cents per copy (up to 5min in length) and you must pay for a minimum of 25 copies. The minimum cost is $2.28 per song.
The Harry Fox Agency, which collects these fees for other copyright holders, charges a $16 processing fee per song licensed. This $16 fee is included in the studioDH listed price. Additionally, studioDH charges a 3% fee which simply covers the credit card charges we incur by processing these fees for you. studioDH makes no money filing these fees for you.
When the copyright holder is David Harrington, we only charge the standard Mechanical License Fee rate of 9.1 cents (min. 25 copies) with no other processing fees.
A: You need to purchase a copy for every physical copy of the arrangement you will print (ex: the number of members in your group). The minimum number of copies is the number of parts in the arrangement.

A: An instrumental track is sometimes referred to as a MIDI track, and the parts play back with the sound of an instrument (piano, string or trombone, for example). These tracks are delivered in the mp3 format. Each set of Instrumental tracks includes 1 full mix, 4 part alone, 4 part predominant and 4 part missing (3 total tracks), or if the tracks indicate they are Part Left, this means that you will get a total of 5 tracks (1 full mix and 4 Part Left).
Part Left means that when the track is played through stereo speakers or headphones, the Part Alone plays through one speaker (left side), and the other three parts play through the other speaker (right side). So, if you adjust the speaker balance all the way to the left, you’ll get one part only. Then, if you adjust the speaker balance all the way to the the right side, you’ll get the other three parts only. This works well in a car, for example, and you can mix as much of each part as you’d like! Now, if you have stereo speakers for your computer, you should be able to adjust the speaker balance by using a knob on the speakers (depending on the kind of external speakers you have), or you can adjust this from within the computer sound control panel. If you have one internal speaker built into your computer, you’ll likely not have a left/right speaker balance option, and the Part Left tracks will sound like equal balance tracks. In this case, you’d need to use headphones to hear the part separation.
