Never let the first question be, "What are your rates?"  Instead, ask yourself "what amount of an investment will do my project justice?"  We can help you answer that question and formulate a cost effective plan for achieving the highest quality finished product that you, your band, or your company can afford.  At most other studios, you get what you pay for.  And while this holds true at Humans Win!, you can expect a little extra sumpin' sumpin' to boot.

Mixing

Mixing is our forte´.  Because there are so many variables, we tend to negotiate a per track flat fee for most projects.  These range anywhere from $125 to $500+ per song.  Of course, mixing by the hour is always an option as well.  For projects that involve production and mixing, producer's points and/or writer's shares may be part of the negotiation. 


Lockouts

Here's your chance to settle in, take over the studio, leave all of your gear set from day to day, and create some kind of masterpiece.  Our staff will work up to 10 hours for a fixed rate.  Overtime will be billed at the engineer's hourly rate.  

Have your own engineer?  So long as they meet our qualifications, we'll find an arrangement that works for you. Contact us for more info! 

*Full advance payment is required to secure dates.  Lockout hours must be used consecutively within a 24 hour period, no exceptions.  We strictly enforce a 48 hour refund policy for lockouts and will retain 50% of the advanced payment if cancellations, rescheduling requests or no-shows occur less than 48 hours before your scheduled arrival time. Contact us with any questions.


*Project Based*

Here's where things get interesting.  We will work within your budget and time frame to accomplish the highest level of quality that you envision for your recording.  We will meet to discuss the details of your recording process and then establish a flat rate per song.  This is a great option for those that prefer not to worry about the clock and has become the most popular arrangement at Humans Win! 

Benefits of project based pricing:

Forget about the clock and just create!

Be like Brian Eno and use the studio as an instrument

Experiment, explore new sounds, record multiple versions of songs

Work with producers that are just as invested in your project as you are

Record at your own pace and call it when you're in need of space from your work

 Let production be the focus.  The goal is to bring your ideas to life, regardless of how long it may take.
