Estimates

We take pride in our ability to give accurate estimates so that you don't get a surprise at the end of the project.  Some things are unpredictable.  For example, If you are trying to nail a very tough vocal line you might get it in three takes or you might get it in thirty takes.  Typically, this evens out over the scope of the project.  We will have a project plan in place so that you can know if you are meeting planned targets on schedule.  If the scope of the project changes midway or you are having trouble meeting milestones in the project we will adjust the estimate and project with you to keep it on track.  

Payment

On multi-day projects, 50% of the overall estimate is due to reserve the studio time. The next 25% is due when you come in to review the first draft of mixes, then the remaining 25% is due when masters or final product is released. ​

 

Extras

Rough Mixes:  In the rare event that a rough mix is released from the studio, it is considered extra time on a project. 

Piano tuning:  Piano tuning is $250 per tuning. 

Drum heads and consumables: Depending on the scope of the project, if you are using one of our studio kits, a charge for heads and cymbals will be applied to the estimate. 

Arriving late for a session

We arrive early to make sure everything is set and ready for your session to get you recording as quickly as possible.  If you or any of the musicians you've booked arrive late and it holds up the project the hourly rate will be applied and charged out on the quarter hour. Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can get you settled in.
