The cost to record a song depends on the time it takes to record and mix the song. When we price a recording, we take into account several factors to give you the best price. These include the type of music, number of instruments used, experience of the musicians, quality of production and any effects required.

The cost to record/mix is $75 per hour +GST to record with an in-house producer/engineer. For a band recording, allow 10 hours to record, mix and master each song.

If you are looking to record, get in touch and we will book a time to scope your recording. This includes asking you the band or music make-up and the experience of the artists. We will also ask for a rough recording of your song/s and some reference songs/music – which are songs or artists that sound similar to the sound you are wanting to achieve.

After this we will be able to provide you an estimate of time and costs.

Once you accept the estimate and pay a deposit, we will match you up with an engineer/producer and book a time to record.

Yes, we have discounted rates for youth and young people that have completed Crescendo Music Mentoring programmes.

We can be available to record evenings or weekends by arrangement.
