Alternative Studio 

Pricing and Policies

Initial consultations are always FREE, and highly recommended!

At the Alternative Recording Studio, we try our best to provide a rustic relaxing atmosphere with a great view that is very conducive to recording.  I value every client and go out of my way to provide a high-quality product at a very reasonable price.  I strive for your complete satisfaction to the best of my abilities to do so.


As of January 1st 2009, the Alternative Recording Studio charges $40/hr. for all editing, restoration, mixing, and mastering activities, as well as recording involving a single audio source (i.e. one instrument, vocal, CD, tape, etc...), even if I am the musician.  The rate increases to $45/hr. when multiple instruments or sound sources are being recorded simultaneously (i.e. full band at once).  When other studio singers/musicians are utilized, the rate will be $60/hr., shared $35 for the Studio, $25 for the musician, unless the studio musician has their own set rate.  Breaks do not count, however setup and dial-in DOES, as this is the most tedious and important part of any project.

We believe that a "pay-as-you-go" payment policy is much more budget friendly for our clients than estimates and lump sums at the beginning and conclusion of a project.  Therefore, payment is expected for each session at the conclusion of that session.

We donít mind if you change your mind about your project.  Just be aware that any "redoes" that are not blatantly due to an error on my part will be charged at the regular rate.

No project, (finished or unfinished) will leave the studio until the current balance due is paid in full.  Any unpaid balance that goes beyond 60 days will be subject to a 1 Ĺ% per month interest charge (18% APR).

Data Backups:

Backups of your project data are conducted regularly, provided free of charge!  However, any project that goes inactive for a long period of time resulting in removal from the system to make room for current projects will be subject to a $50 restoration fee.  Backups take a lot of time and great care on my part; however, we will not be responsible for any loss of data from being removed and restored due to inactivity and/or non-payment.  If tracks ever get lost due to equipment failure or error on my part, those tracks will be re-recorded free of charge.
