MUSIC PRODUCTION:

$1000 per track (Mixing & Mastering not incl.)

+ If and where applicable, writers splits %

While each artist will require a tailored approach, the process is typically broken into three stages.

Stage 1 - Complete composition and arrangement

In this stage, we go over your song with a fine-toothed comb, checking over the composition and completing a music bed. After this session, you'll have a track you can perform vocals on. At this point, you may wish to record vocals at home in your own time.

 

Stage 2 - Tweaks and finalising the demo

Next, we import your vocals and make any changes to the music that you'd like, and do a rough mix of the song. We can also record your vocals. This service includes up to 2 hours of vocal recording and editing.

 

Stage 3 - Finishing touches

After you've had a chance to listen to the demo and make notes, we can spend another session working on the mix, and getting the song ready to share.

The price of this service is $1000. Vocal recording, editing, or any extra revisions you may want in addition to the three stages are charged at a base rate of $50 p/h.

MIXING: Is an additional $650 per track

MASTERING: Is an additional $120 per track
