Rates for mixing can be difficult to quote because a typical song can be anywhere from just a couple of tracks ranging all the way up to 120+ tracks. The time it takes can be a few hours up to three or four days. In an effort to give you the best estimate and be as fair as possible, I have broken out my mixing rates by number of tracks in the session.
Please note that these prices are for songs that are prepped and ready to be mixed. The sessions should be edited for tightness, vocals should be tuned, and all fades should be cleaned up. I also take on projects that require additional production such as extensive editing, tuning, and timing - or even bringing in musicians to help reimagine a song. If your project includes that sort of work, please get in touch and we can discuss customized pricing.
Estimated Mixing Rates by Total Track Number:
1-20 tracks $300
20-90 tracks $600
90-120 tracks $900
Interested in a test mix?
I often offer a test mix to new clients so that we can get a feel for what it would be like to work together. I find that it's the best way to show what I can bring to the project, and allow me to get a feel for the aesthetic and process of the artist. It works like a non-refundable deposit. I charge a token fee of $100, paid up front, to start work in good faith. Once we establish that this was a successful partnership, and the track is approved, it is expected that the balance of the mix fee will be paid.
Have more than 120 tracks? Have questions on specifics or pricing? I’m always happy to go over the details before starting a project. Please reach out!
Typically involves mixing 8 to 10 stereo tracks of drums, bass, guitar, vocals, backing vocals, keys, percussion, and miscellaneous. I also offer an option where I mix the individual drum tracks as well.
Stem Mix - $250 per song
Stem Mix with Drum Mix - $300 per song
$60 per song, plus $60 for setup and sequencing.
