Recording Prices and Packages

Hello..! I've put together a variety of new packages below, which might help you work out what you’re after.

Quotes: We typically prefer to quote for a specific job, which gives us the chance to adjust the ongoing hourly rate towards your budget.

The best way to obtain a quote is to send us an email with a short description of your goals, predicted outcome, any web links to previous recordings, a run down on who is in the band, and of course a basic idea of the type of budget you would like to stick to.

For freelance engineers, or those clients bringing in their own engineer, please check out Package D, Dry Hire.

Album Package:

Best to send a full description of your group, and what you plan to do.

This ranges anywhere from a live recorded album for around $850 up to the cost of a really nice boat.

Best to come in and book a Free Studio Tour


Studio Musician:

We have a huge list of amazing musicians, who charge anywhere between $50 to $90 an hour, to lay down performances on your tracks. We don’t list them here because their details change often. Best to email us about this one.

Piano Use:

Alchemix has a Stein Bach Baby 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.

Studio terms and agreements:

All prices include 10% GST Tax. 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 Recording Studios until all invoices are paid in full by the client.

We recommend you bring your own portable hard drive or flash drive. This will speed up backup time. I’d recommend a small SSD drive, like the in-expensive Toshiba drives at Officeworks, for $70.

After 3 months from completing your project, your files will be moved onto backup hard drives, which we no longer can guarantee the safety off. I do however have the last 5 or so years of sessions at arms length. Drives have become more reliable of late :)

Ask us if you would like to request a backup hard drive to be added to your project quote.
