Hey, I finally managed to get a small recording/mixing/mastering contract for a local project and I was asking myself some questions. Question would be about how much to charge for the whole project ? To begin with, we're gonna be recording the drums in a small studio that the drummer have so I don't have to worry about the studio fee, so it's cleared out. Recording of the Guitar and Vocals will take place in my house, and the guitarist is extremely picky about his takes and tone so I know there will be a lot of time spent tracking and deleting and editing, as for the Tone of the whole EP, we are shooting for the old school death metal in the veins of Demilich, Adremalech Demigod so It implies, sound programming like Choirs, bells, synth, orchestral sections, tone creation via VST and Cabinet impulses; which I will all take care off but I still have to create those sounds. Plus, Guitar tracking will be done with a drum machine (SD 2.0 TMF) then Real drums will be tracked, yeah weird but that's what we have to do unfortunately. Now, 25 minutes of music and shitloads of programmings, sound synthesis and the normal job? How much should I charge my best friend client?
