Any studio time is My Rate + The Studio Rate                                                                 

I work in hourly rates, day rates, and flat rates for mixes.

Rates subject to change based upon the parameters of the project.

I work out of:

Room 17 Studios: Bushwick Brooklyn NY

Room 17 Studio is a large recording studio in Bushwick Brooklyn. The live room is ideal for recording a rock band or large ensemble.  Room 17 has two isolation booths with sight lines to the main live room and control room. There are also several amp isolation rooms available throughout the facility and a reverb chamber in the basement. The Trident 80 series recording console provides a sweet vintage vibe.

Studio G (B Room): Williamsburg Brooklyn NY

The new B room at Studio G offers a large live room with 3 iso booths, a large instrument collection including a Yamaha grand piano. A Neve 5465 mixing console paired with a Studer A80 tape machine offers an amazing classic tone. This studio also provides Pro Tools and one of the largest collections of analog outboard equipment in NYC to create amazing recordings.

The Buddy Project : Astoria Queens NY

The Buddy Project is a small but well equipped mixing and overdub studio. The studio features a Roll Fulcrum summing mixer, Eisen Audio preamps and a fantastic microphone collection. This is where the majority of my mix work takes place.

Seaside Lounge

Seaside Lounge, in Brooklyn is a great classic recording studio. The studio features a large live room and a well tuned control room with an MCI mixing console and protools HD.

Production/ Album Packages

If you feel that your band is ready for a real production, send me an email. Although I produce or co-produce a majority of the records I engineer, hiring me for a production is a different story all together (far more work!).

Music Production Clinics

I currently offer a music production clinic focusing on drum recording. This clinic is usually between 2-3 hours long. This can be a private tutorial, or split between up to 5 people.

In the clinic we go over:

drum tuning
room acoustics for drum recording
mic placement, theory, and choice
drum placement in relation to mic placement
EQing and compressing to tape
drum mixing
+ anything else I can cram in there

The clinics take place at The Moontower Recording Studio in Boston, Monsterland in Brooklyn or Skyline in Manhattan.

Booking and Deposits

I require a 50% deposit to book any session(s). This deposit is non refundable.
Most studios that I work at also require a 50% deposit for the studio time. This deposit is also non refundable.

I generally book 1-4 months in advance. If you are thinking of working with me on a project, booking dates far in advance has many advantages.

– It gives you, the artist, a schedule to adhere to for rehearsals and preproduction.
– it opens up the possibility of getting deals on studio time lockouts.
– it gives plenty of notice to session musicians
– it allows for a better promotional strategy to start early in the preproduction process.

How long will it take to record my EP/ Album/ Demo/Single/Dogs birthday present?
This largely depends upon how we choose to make the recording, the preparation of the musicians, and the type of record being created. Some general ballpark figures for “rock” bands.
10 song album- 7-10 days of tracking (recording)
3-8 days of mixing

6 song EP – 3-5 days of tracking
3-5 days of mixing

4 song demo 1-4 days of mixing and tracking.

single 1-2 days

These are very rough estimates of the time it takes to create a really amazing sounding record. I have done whole albums that took 3 days, but its not the norm, and you should budget for more. If you really want to know how long it will take to record your masterpiece, email me.
