RECORDING STUDIO PRICES:

 

Though we pride ourselves in the quality of our mixes we have alway kept our prices competitive, and we are therefore able to offer top quality studio recordings at budget / mid range prices. The studio is available for hire from £25.00 per hour (including Engineer). Mixing time is charged at a base rate of £40.00 per track (£10.00 per hour for 4 hours of mixing) or £80.00 per track with tweaks and Mastering included.  We offer this service so that you can be safe in the knowlege that your songs will still sound exactly the way that you want them to after the mix has been approved.
