Rates

Recording/Mixing

Our staff is extremely mindful of your time and strives for effective and efficient service. Comparing baseline prices for recording will rarely achieve your desired result or, in the long run, your desired budget. Plus, there are so many different ways to record and each takes different amounts of time. The best way to figure out what your album/song will cost is to develop a production plan with your engineer.

We understand that for last minute or short sessions, this is not always possible or sometimes does not make sense. In those cases, recording and mixing is typically $60 – $75/hr.

In all other cases, we prefer to meet or speak with the band/artist and discuss a production plan and develop a timeline and budget. Recording music is part creative and part technical, and those things can take more or less time depending on what your vision is for your project… we want to learn about what you want and give you your options.

Mastering

Music mastering is done as a flat rate of $50 for one song and $25 for each additional when we master on our own. If you want to be in the room while we master, it is $75/hr. To ensure quality, we don’t recommend mastering on the same day as your recording or mixing session.

Deposits

A deposit of $60 per 1-6 hour session and $120 per 7-12 hour session is due at the time of scheduling. Deposits are non-refundable upon cancellation/rescheduling.

Voice Over Recording

Voice over recording and post-production/editing is $60 per hour.

Podcast Recording with an Engineer

Full service podcast recording with an engineer is $60/hr for recording one of the main studios (A or B) or $55/hr in Studio C. Editing, mixing, and other post-production is $60/hr.

Do-It-Yourself

If you just want a quiet room to record your podcast and you are supplying your own computer/recording interface, it is $35/hr for our main studio (A and B) before 6 PM Monday to Friday. Evenings and weekends are $45/hr in Studio A or B. Studio C is $25/hr anytime. 2 hour minimum is required. We can supply you with table, chairs, microphones, cables, and headphones.

Format Transfer Rates

Due to the unknown condition and length of most legacy formats, our transfers are normally billed per labor hour. Rates are between $30 and $100 per hour. Physical repair, cleaning, materials, and data management costs may also apply. An estimate will be provided upon inspection of your project.

Large format open reel tapes and ADATs are flat rate. Call for pricing.

Audio Restoration

Audio Restoration is billed at $50/hr.

Open Reel Tape Baking

Baking is $15 to $50 per tape, depending on the tape size and reel size.

Deposit

A deposit of $20 per item is due before services are rendered.

Turnaround Time

This depends on the length and intensity of the project. If it is a single cassette or DAT, we might be able to have it for you by the end of the day. If you have 3000 open reel tapes, expect it to take some extra time. We will assess turnaround time according to the size of the project and our current queue. Average turnaround for a small or medium size project is around 2 to 3 weeks. We also offer a rush fee of $50 per tape, which pushes your project to the front of the line and in most cases, means around a 48 hour turnaround.
