Rate card

We try to operate a simple pricing structure tailored to the needs of the very different artists and performers who use . If you feel your needs are not met within our standard pricing structure, please talk to us as we will always try to accommodate your needs.

See our Package deals for significant savings on standard projects such as demo tapes.

Most recording sessions are on the basis of a full studio day – 9am to 5pm or half day (either 9am to 1pm or 1pm to 5pm) – weekdays in both cases. Weekend bookings are sometimes available – please adjust prices up by 50% for weekend sessions. Activities such as mixing, editing etc. are charged by the hour.

Given adequate notice of your requirements the studio will be prepared (mics, stands, acoustic panels/baffles, cables, monitoring etc.) before the start of a session. Session time starts at the time booked (eg, 9am) – it is usually possible to arrive early to set up equipment but please arrange this with us in advance. 45 minutes is allowed at the end of a session for pack-up and removal of equipment.
