Cato likes to spend extra time on each project to learn new techniques while working. This allows her to expand her skills as an audio engineer, and take your project a step further. For this reason, she prefers to charge flat rates for services like mixing and mastering. It’s also usually a better deal for the client. Studio services remain an hourly rate. Here are her current rates (all rates are in US dollars):
Mixing: $200 per song
Mastering: $40 per song
Tracking: $20/hr + the studio’s hourly rate
Most other hourly work is also charged at $20/hr, but contact Cato for more information on your specific project. Depending on the project’s length and density, prices may vary.
