How much do you guys charge for studio time?
$30/hour, 3 hour minimum
Why do you say that live sound prices start at $200?
There are many variables that affect the overall pricing
of a live contract. Distance, number of performers, audience
size and lighting choices all come into play when determining
a price. Please call or email us with your event details
and we’ll create an individualized and itemized quote.
Do you ever offer any good deals on recording?
We here at the Mill have checked out most of the competition
in the province. $30/hour is a good deal.
I'm looking at only recording 3-4 tunes. How much do you
think this will cost?
It's hard to give an accurate estimate because each artist
is different. Some clients can do a song an hour, while
others take up to 8 hours per song. It's a reality that
some artists on major labels spend hundreds of hours on
one song alone. We realize that your hard-earned money is
valuable, so we do our best to keep things running quickly.
At the same time, we do not believe in being pushy. A good
rule of thumb for a rock/punk/indie band is about 4 hours
a song once mixing and mastering is accounted.
Will my recording sound as good as <<insert huge-name
We are proud of the records that come out of the Mill. While
our recordings may not reach heights of audiophile bliss,
we have found that our clients leave with a disc that they
are looking forward to sharing with the world. Simply put,
if you are looking for a multi-million dollar sound, you
need to spend a few million dollars. If you are looking
for a damn good start, come see us.
Can you guys set up your PA early so we can go over a sound
Sure! We’ll come in a week early if you’d like,
but it’s going to cost a little more.
We will work as hard as we can to get you sounding your
best, but unless specifically negotiated, we will usually
begin staging around 2 hours prior to the door.
Can I send you a stage plot?
Please, please, please send us a stage plot!! Email us at
with a .pdf or .doc attachment of your band’s setup.
Well even gladly take a scanned sketch! The more we know
about you before you hit the stage, the better.
