Rates & Packages at Hillvibe Studios
Below is a list of options for different ways of recording your next album, demo or single with Hillsvibe Productions. These are here just to give you an idea of the processes involved and approximately how long things take to get completed.
After being involved in so many recording projects, both as a musician and engineer / producer that I’ve see how bands and musicians like to work in the studio and also the time it takes to get things done. Please see if any of these packages suit you and the type of project you are wanting to do, or simply contact us to work out something more specific for you.
***Please note options A-D are based more on live multi – tracking not individual layering sessions
Option A: (3 Song Demo) – $300.00
Load in Sunday and record all music & vocals (up to 3 songs) tracking all music together. We give it a quick mix and at the end of the day you all walk away with a CD and digital files of your recordings. From there we can arrange any additional mixing & mastering time if desired.
- Recording and mixing time 10am – 6pm all completed
Option B: (4 song Demo) – $500.00
Load in Sunday and record all music & vocals on the day (tracking all music together). We then complete an additional 4-6 hour edit & mix of all your tracks at another time & run off copies for all members of the band; We can then arrange any extra mixing or mastering time if desired.

Option C: (5 Song Demo or EP) – $650.00
Load in Sunday and work only on getting a couple of really good takes of approx. 5 songs of the music only (accompanied by a guide vocal). Then arrange another 3-4 hour recording session for the vocals only, giving the singer a chance to relax their voice after guiding the band all day. We will then complete a 4 hour edit & mix of your tracks & run off copies for all members of the band so that you can have a listen; We can then arrange any extra mixing or mastering time if desired.

Option D: (6 Song Demo or EP) – $800.00
Band loads in Saturday late afternoon/evening, gets everything set-up & goes home to relax.
Return Sunday morning with everything ready to go, jump straight on your instrument, have a quick jam and then we’re off ready to record. (The advantages of this are eliminating the tiredness that comes with the process of loading everything in, setting up quickly and then recording. You return Sunday excited, refreshed and energised to start playing and get the best out of your recording.)
The band gets recorded all at once and vocals will either get overdubbed after or recorded at the same time depending on your preference (usually after). Once we have recorded everything, all your work will then be backed up & you leave it with me.
I will then complete a 6 hour edit & mix of your tracks & run off copies for all members of the band for you to have a listen to, we can then arrange any extra mixing time and if you would like to look at mastering any or all your tracks.
- 2 hour load in and set-up Saturday afternoon
- 10am – 6pm recording time Sunday
- Additional 4 hour recording session for vocals & overdubs
- 6 hour edit and mix of your music
Option E: (Full Album LP up to 10 songs) – $1,100.00
Load in Saturday afternoon, set up and check all instruments and signals. Return Sunday ready to record all day from 10am finishing up around 7pm, we will be recording the music only and a vocal guide track.
After that, we arrange a separate 4-5 hour recording session for vocals only and any extra over dubs the band wants to do. This gives the vocalist a chance to rest their voice after guiding the band all day and ready to focus on their own performance.
Once we have tracked all the vocals we can then do any additional overdubs that may be desired, or arrange another session for that.
Then you leave it with me, I will complete an approximate 8-10 hour edit & mix of all your tracks (approx 1 hour per song) & run off ‘first copy mixes’ for all members of the band to have a listen; we then make any changes that you may have and once you are happy with the mix, I will then master all tracks as well. You can all have a final listen once completed and I will run you off master copies for all members.
- 3 hour load in and set-up Saturday afternoon
