Below are my basic hourly and daily rates, for the various types of work I do. I used these rates to work out all my packages, which can be found on the sub-pages under this one. I have arranged my packages on separate pages for vocalists, solo artists (or duos) and bands. There's also packages for MIDI sequencing of backing tracks and accompaniments, as well as my design packages.
My minimum fee for any audio production work is £50, but I always strive to help you make the most of that £50. For instance, two hours of vocal recording and one hour of mixing, comes to £50, in which time (if you've been practising) we could record and mix an entire album!

All the above packages are based on everything being recorded in my studio. Yes, it's a bit of a squeeze getting a full drum kit set up inside that small space, but I've had plenty of experience doing so and it's been pretty successful so far. However, some kits simply won't fit and some drummers prefer a larger space in which to perform - both perfectly good reasons for using a larger studio to record the drums. But the most important reason is that drums invariably sound better when recorded in a larger room with decent acoustics, than in a small, yet acoustically deadened room. That's my own personal opinion, of course, but I'm confident that, if you research the issue, you'll find that is the general consensus.
Backing tracks come in all shapes and sizes and, depending what kind of instruments need to be used, they can be as simple or complex as you want them to be. So I've devised some basic packages, which should be able to be applied to a variety of needs, whatever genre of music you're into. And if none of the following packages quite suit your needs, they can easily be adjusted any way you wish, using parts from the accompaniments list to build the track just the way you want it. Please let me know what precisely what you need and I'll be pleased to give you a bespoke quote.
I have devised some basic sequencing packages, which can be used for various purposes, whatever genre of music you're into. And if none of these packages quite work for you, they can easily be adjusted as you wish, adding parts from the accompaniments list to put your track together just the way you want it. Please let me know precisely what you need and I'll be pleased to give you a tailored quote.
The following packages are based on sequencing an original loop (or loops) composed of 4 instrument parts (drums, bass, chords, melody, etc.) arranged into sections to fit your vocals. I will then drop parts in and out to create dynamic changes, adding embellishments like drum fills, synth twinkles, string runs, filter tweaks, etc. The final stage is to mix the finished track and supply you with the required files.
