Reach out if you have questions! I work with everyone from students, to garage bands, to industry folks.
For project inquiries, please include something that I can listen to, like a demo, rough mix, past release, etc.

It all starts with a discussion of your music and ideas. What are your goals? What is your vision for the record?
Production is ultimately about managing the recording process. It’s everything from planning, to effect choices, to evaluating performances.
An album of great live performances can be recorded in a couple days, but most modern music requires time to layer sounds in the studio.
For albums, it’s best to plan the entire project around a fixed budget. A discussion of ideas and costs allows me to suggest a studio for the sound, equipment, and atmosphere, while considering how much time will be available.
Engineering / Recording / Editing
Studio engineering and editing, whatever you need to get your project done. Please bring a drive for file exchange.
$300/day: Normal hours, 10am – 8pm. Studio rate will also apply.
$50/hr: Audio editing, tuning, restoration, processing, etc.
Working from multi-track audio files (“stems”) or Pro Tools sessions to make songs sound amazing – using analog and digital gear to balance, distort, enhance, filter, polish, warp, and generally make better.
$300/song*: Remote and/or in-person work, with revisions.
*It varies a bit. To quote a fixed rate, I need to ensure that I’ll have time to do good work. This means accounting for details like huge track counts, incomplete editing/tuning, printing post-mix stems, etc. Alternatively, straightforward recordings can be mixed fast & cheap with the right band/right attitude.
Sonic enhancement, loudness processing, and song sequencing. I deliver digital masters for streaming upload, vinyl/cassette, and CD.
$350/album, max. 10 songs / 45mins. Inquire for EPs and longer LPs.
