Music Projects – Advanced Breakdown

I’ll try to keep the breakdown as simple as possible because it can get long and tedious. There are several parts to what we call “production,” and I’ll list them here with a little explanation for each. I’ll also breakdown the costs further down.

Pre-Production (Optional)
This is all the prep work getting ready for a recording. From songwriting/critique to instrument prep to planning/scheduling. It usually pays off in productivity and increases accomplishment and success, though it depends on how you define those things.
Setup & Soundcheck
Just like you would do for a show, only it takes longer because the small details need to be addressed and covered. The more time spent on setup and soundcheck the better the recording ends up, usually.
Recording (aka “Tracking”)
Just what you would expect.
Editing
This is the process of making performances sound better and combining different takes together to be one.
Mixing
Blending all the tracks/instruments for each song together so they work in a clear and effective way.
Mastering
A technical process of making the “mix” meet the specifications of today’s “destinations” as far as loudness and file types are concerned. Often confused with mixing, it is a VERY separate process.

 

Music Projects – Costs

  • $30/hour studio rental (facility & equipment rental, and assistant engineer)
  • $30/hour for an engineer to operate the studio
  • IF you have or are your own engineer, that’s a great way to save money
  • $100-$250 per song for mixing
  • $50 per song for mastering
  • Producers are available at an additional cost
  • Contact form at the bottom of the page

***Of note, pre-production and editing are mostly dependant on the variables of the producer or engineer working on the project, and hard to quote, BUT…
