SERVICES

I can take your project from the initial idea through the final retail/radio-ready product or help out anywhere along the way. Some of my common services are listed below. Use as few or many as you need to fulfill your goals.

 

• Full Production - Producing, Recording, Mixing, Mastering

• Co-writing - Stuck on a song? We work together to bring it to completion

• Instrument Performance - drums, bass, guitars, some keys and programming

• Producing - Bringing fresh ears, ideas and guidance

• Engineering - Quality tracks from the start makes the difference

• Mixing - Already recorded? A professional mix ties it all together

• Mastering - The final glue and polish

• Pre-production Recording - Well prepared demoes for your record label

• Guitar/Bass Re-amping - Record your parts direct at home and find your great tone here

 

Discussing Your Project

When you contact me to discuss your project, please include MP3 samples or an online link to your demoes or previous recordings. Tell me what you would like me to do for you (producing, recording, mixing, mastering, etc.), how you wish to record (live, overdubs, etc.) and what your budget is.

 

Mixing Services

I offer an excellent plan for those whose record has already been recorded and is ready for mixing. Finding the right mix engineer can be a very hit or miss situation. Every mix engineer will interpret your material in their own way and while many will do a fine job, their work may not suit your vision.

 

In this light, I am willing to mix one song from your project with no upfront costs. You send me the multi-track files, I will mix the song, then send you an MP3 of the mix for your approval. You will have a chance to make notes for any changes or tweaks you would like to hear and I will make a complimentary recall of the mix based on your notes. If you like my mix job and want to move forward having me mix the rest of your album, you buy the mix at a predetermined flat rate and a flat rate for mixing the rest of the album will be agreed upon. We will ensure that my mixing package price fits within your budget before we agree upon anything.

 

Additionally, my normal mastering rate of $30/song will be waived and full album mastering will be included in the flat rate mix package. Of course, using me for mastering is entirely optional. If you wish to have my mixes mastered elsewhere, you will receive unmastered final stereo mixes at the native rate/resolution of the project, ready for your mastering engineer of choice.

 

Now you can rest easy knowing the mixing of your album will turn out as you intend at a cost that you expect.

 

Mastering Services

If your album has been completely mixed and is ready for mastering, rates for mastering are $30 per song. This includes a standard 16bit/44.1KHz Red Book CD master (for CD manufacturing) and mastered stereo files in a second format of your choice (such as the project’s native rate/resolution). If you have alternate mixes of each song (such as TV tracks, etc.) or need alternate versions of mastering, we can discuss the project at length to determine a flat rate for everything.

 

Recording Services

Since each record can be quite different, recording costs are agreed upon on a case by case basis. For bands/artists who are looking for full production, I usually set a flat rate per song/album and ignore the clock altogether. This allows us to relax and get the best possible sounds and performances down without worrying about time and going over budget. This flat rate can include recording only or may include mixing and mastering as well.

 

Of course, flat day rates are also available to those who wish to buy time. In this, you can pay-as-you-go instead of financing the whole album in one large chunk.

 

Additional Services

If you would like me to assist you in co-writing or instrument performance, these services will be built into the flat rate agreed upon. All of my instruments (guitars, basses, drums, etc.) amps, pedals, keyboards and other gear are freely available for your use and are included in your time here. No hidden charges.
