RECORDING (includes engineer)
Because “watching the clock” creates a stressful environment for a recording session, we prefer to work hourly on each project. We have worked with many artists on different types of projects including singles, EPs, demos, full-length albums, voiceovers, spoken word, documentaries, etc. and this system levels the playing field.
- Base hourly rate for: on-site recording is $50 per hour
- Off-site recording is $70 per hour
Give us a call at (301) 614-0695 to discuss your project details. We offer a free consultation with any project to best determine what is needed to accomplish your specific goals. Assuming the time is available, we can usually work with most budgets.
This service is for in-house clients and for those who have recorded their material somewhere else and is looking for a different take on the mix-down. Short projects (singles, EP’s, demos, short programs under 4 hours in length) are billed at a rate of $50 per hour. Recording projects exceeding 10 hours are negotiable.
In any event, give us a call at (301) 614-0695 to discuss your project.
Pre-production services include project preparation and strategy. We map out your project for a seamless workflow, rendering keyboard "blueprints" of your songs before you actually record at House of Jam.
Our Mastering Lite service included with every session involves routing the final mix through our state-of-the-waves plug-ins maximizing your sound. Mastering Lite does not involve complex equalization, compression and processing.
