Important Notes:

Budgeting for studio time is only one component of your total project cost. It is often the largest component as well.

HOW LONG will my project take? - A general guideline you can follow for estimating studio time is; for a demo, figure 1 hour per minute of final product, and for an album figure 5-8 hours per minute of final product. This is for all tracking and mixing. It does not cover the costs for mastering and reproduction.More time spent does not always mean a better recording - practice, musicianship, and preparation are critical. Sometimes the best recordings happen on the first take! Every project is different, we'll help you estimate your costs based on your budget and your goals for the finished product. Project based funding may be negotiated.

Payment due upon invoice at end of session!
