1,000 CD Production Package

We are excited to offer a complete package which includes all you need to produce retail-ready CD's:

  • Up to three days of recording, allowing you time to give your best performance without pressure
  • Professional editing, post-production and mastering in our facilities
  • 1000 CD's that include a 4-page color cover booklet, color traycard, color silkscreen printing on the CD face, deluxe full-size jewel case, and retail shrinkwrap.
Your complete cost (not including shipping or copyright fees) is just $2595.
The bottom line is that after selling just 200 CDs at $15, your recording expenses are fully recouped--and you can clear more than $10,000 on the remainder!


Studio Book Rates

During a recording project, the last thing an artist needs is the nagging thought of the clock ticking away the dollars. To enable you to think only about the music, we offer a day-rate in which the only recording session time constraint is your concentration and endurance. For those with different needs, we offer the traditional hourly rate, but with a two-hour minimum plus any applicable setup charge.

Mobile Recording: $60 per hour / $400 per day (up to 12 hours)
Editing, post-production or mastering: $40 per hour
CD-R copies: $5 each ($6 for color)

Expenses such as travel, meals, and shipping are not included in the hourly rates.
Additional equipment rental will be billed at cost plus 10%.

Please contact us with any questions you may have regarding our packages, rates, or fees. If nothing you see here meets your needs, we are always happy to create a custom proposal for you.
Thank you for considering Pacific Rim Sound for your recording needs.
