House of Jam Recording Studio Rates

Major-label quality with Indie-friendly rates

(Rates are in effect as of Summer /Fall 2012)

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.

MIXING

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.

MASTERING

Maximize your experience at House of Jam with pre-production and post-production services at our brother studio – Jam On!  Only $50 per hour!

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.

Post-production services include mastering – detailed enhancement  and enlargement of your completed tracks after you've recorded at the House of Jam.  Give your final product the competitive edge with complex EQ, compression and limiting plus an astonishing array of sound enhancement trade secrets!
 
Land your sound anywhere in the range – from a light & natural mastering approach for acoustic and "unplugged" tracks, to a balls-to-the-wall aggressive approach for a super-loud "wall-of-sound.
 
MASTERING LITE

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.
