Vocal Sessions - Price Guide

Vocal sessions are for cover versions sung over backing tracks.

How much will your project cost?

The Blue Dot studio is small but perfectly formed - ideal for solo artists, duos or trios. For larger outfits, Olli has relationships with many bigger venues and will arrange an alternative recording space.

Recording at Blue Dot gives you access to industry-standard equipment at independent prices. Having worked in the recording industry for over 10 years, Olli’s equipment list is extensive - and everything from the mic stands to the mastering software has been carefully researched and chosen by hand.

The main factor in determining cost is time. Naturally, projects that take longer to record will usually also take longer to produce, mix and master. Consider:

  • How long is each track?
  • How many tracks are there?
  • How many instruments / vocal parts need to be recorded for each one?
  • Does each track require overdubs / digital instrumentation / a backing track?
  • Do you want any special audio effects?

As you can tell, the variable lengths, number and complexity of the tracks being recorded means that, individual projects inevitably vary considerably in cost (hence the wide price ranges).

For a more accurate estimation of the cost of your project, it’s always best to get in touch and have a chat.
