* FYI we usually recommend a 7hr day session to lay down 1 song. Then depending on budget, we usually recommend 2 to 10 hours of post production. It really depends on the type of sound you are after, so references and demos would help us to give you an honest idea on cost. A single could also mean 2 to 3 songs, as that is pretty typical when distributing on platforms like Spotify

EXTRAS ~ Studio Musicians
Our musician list (those talented folk we choose to work with) changes often. So if you feel you may require some of that talent for your project, be sure to let us know when making your inquiry and we'll do our best to match you up with the right person 💃
Alchemix currently has a Steinway and Sons Model D Grand Piano, which can be used during your recording session. Cost to use the piano is free. If you want to make sure it is in perfect tune, we can get a professional, AJ Hall, to tune it for $220, but the Piano is usually pretty in tune to begin with. We also have a beautiful old upright piano, which is in tune, but down 1 tone. It's really quite special. You can hear it being played on the end of Wagon Ride, from the first Bluey Album.

Studio Terms & Agreements
All prices include 10% GST Tax when invoiced from Alchemix Pty Ltd. We require a 50% deposit to lock in dates. Your deposit is refundable to you in total if you cancel outside of 2 weeks prior to your first recording date.
The remainder is due upon completion of the original booked date.
All your audio and master backups shall remain the property of Alchemix Pty Ltd until all invoices are paid in full by the client.
During your project, your files will be saved on two hard drives. We do however recommend you bring in a portable SSD, to backup your project. We can only guarantee backups for up to 6 months after your project is complete. We don't delete files, we just don't trust hard drives :)
I do however have the last 15 or so years of sessions at arms length.
Ask us if you would like to request a backup hard drive to be added to your project quote.
