Studio time, engineers and materials

Studio time
-The quoted rate includes use of all recording equipment, signal processing, most amplifiers, keyboards, and percussion instruments; guitars and some amplifiers are available for client use by special arrangement only; email us for details
-These rates are for all multitrack recording, mixing, mastering, duplication, media backup, pre- and post-production work.
-Workday length can vary from engineer to engineer and will be arranged at time of booking.

These same guidelines apply to “half-day” bookings, except that on such bookings the “half-day” is five hours long.
-All set up and tear down time, as well as time waiting for clients to arrive at or leave the studio, is billed at full hourly rates except by prior arrangement with Flowers.

Engineers
-Our staff of house engineers have great ears, strong musical sensibilities, and know our facility inside and out. They are accustomed to and capable of working as lead engineer or as assistant depending on the requirements of the session.
-A house engineer must be present at all sessions unless you are using an approved outside engineer or prior arrangements have been made with us.
-Overtime hours for engineers will be billed at the hourly rate unless prior arrangements have been made.
-Special pricing for block and project bookings may be available; contact us with your inquiries.
