1. "How much is it going to cost?"
Prices of course, vary depending on the services provided.
For recording, digital editing and mixing the basic studio rate is 50.00/hr.
If a project involves only arranging and sequencing (no live vocals or musicians) there are no studio charges.
Songwriter demos' fees vary depending on the depth of production (simple trio to full orchestra) and talent
(how many live musicians and singers are to be hired). Generally speaking, the average cost for a finished songwriter demo is usually in the
550.00 to 700.00 price range. Once we hear the actual song to be demoed, a very accurate estimate can be issued.
Advertising music (jingles and bed music) involve a creative fee, and are determined in advance on a per project basis. Please contact us for particulars!
2. "How long will it take?"
Again, it depends on the individual project and the current schedule of the studio. Generally,
a working window of 10 business days is sufficient, although we've been known to turn a jingle in as little as
36 hours and an ad bed project overnight!
Once we have listened to the material and figured the logistics, a time line will be provided along with the estimate.
3. "How do I know I'm going to like it?"
We involve all of our clients very directly with the process. Usually, after the initial meeting and
agreement to proceed, we will call you back in to audition our progress by playing for you our concept.
At this time the production is sufficient enough that you should not have to make too much of a "leap"
to be able to imagine the finished results. This, along with using the finest equipment, vocalists and musicians,
insures a quality product with no surprises.
We also encourage our clients to attend any actual recording sessions
to offer their input...just don't touch anything! (just kidding!)
4. "Okay, so what are the financial requirements?"
As trustworthy as we're sure you are, projects for new clients require a 50% deposit with the balance
due upon completion of the project (before your master CD leaves the studio!) [:) This is a common
industry practice. Once we've got a couple of projects with you under our belts (we trust you, you trust us)
these requirements may be modified.
