MIXING AND MASTERING PRICES

Prices for mixing and mastering are an important criterion when deciding on the right mixing or mastering studio, especially for artists with a limited budget.

You have the choice between analog processing and pure digital processing your project. The digital processing dispenses with external analogue outboard equipment and is therefore price cheaper. The studio room and engineer don't change here!

With our prices for mixing, mastering, lessons and services, we have tried to make them as transparent as possible. We are happy to offer generous discounts for larger projects!

 

So feel free to contact us and we will create it based on your budget a suitable offer

WHAT DOES A MIXING OR MASTERING ENGINEER REALLY HAVE FROM ITS “EXPENSIVE” PRICE?

€58

€6,00
Running costs including maintenance costs (5%)
€23,2

€31,50
Investments (10%) e.g. new devices etc.

CONCLUSION OF THE CALCULATION:

As we noted above, we have € 290 on one Mix and Master deserved. But now there is still some expenditure to be made before we can determine our actual hourly wage.

So we see here that the mastering engineer on average one Hourly wage of € 48,17 Has. For this he has years of experience, possibly one or more studies behind him, possibly learned countless instruments and invested a lot of money, time and uncertainty about the future.

Namely the creative energy and passion for music! Be it in mixing or in Audio mastering of music. This is simply priceless!
