We prefer to produce original and creative music, and that often means bands that are undiscovered... and therefore, POOR! So we have made significant efforts to keep our rates affordable without sacrificing quality. To schedule time, please call the studio at (262) 679-9332. If you are coming from out of town, we can help you locate nearby and reasonably priced hotels.
Standard rate is $45/hr, pro-rated in 15 minute intervals (minimum charge 1 hour), including engineer. Troy's rate is $75/hr, and 3 producer points on all work intended for public release.
Booking and Deposits:
Times are reserved with a deposit. The deposit amount is $50 for all sessions scheduled for four hours or less, and $100 for full day sessions. This deposit is applied to the first hour(s) of studio time. Deposited sessions may be rescheduled with 48 hour notice.
We accept cash, check, or credit card (MC, Visa, AmEx). Full payment is expected at time of service unless prior arrangements have been made. In all cases, the current balance must be “0” for any CD proofs and/or masters to leave the studio. No exceptions!
Musician and Arrangement Services:
Professional music accompaniment and/or arrangement is available in all styles. Please ask for specific pricing.
CD Masters, Archiving, and Data Integrity:
CD-R proofs, PMCD masters, and archived multitrack backups are created at studio time. Although archive backup is not required, it is highly recommended. Should you choose that we do not archive your work, we will take reasonable precautions to insure safety of your data, but we can not guarantee it!
CD-R Duplication and CD Replication:
We do customized, short runs of CD-R duplication on a per disc cost basis, and can handle full replication through off-site vendors. Ask for specific pricing.
In the end, it’s all about getting you to sound great. And we know you want to sound great or you wouldn't come here. The most critical ingredients to achieving a good sounding final product are 1) good performances, and 2) enough time to hone the mix and/or edit the performance as necessary. Our reasonable rates mean you can spend more time on your performances and mixes, giving you a better final product. Please read over our “Work Methods and Band Preparation Guide” that Troy has prepared and don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have.
