- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have an affordable hourly rate and also offer discounts for blocking out multiple consecutive days at the studio, but pricing depends very much on your project. I will try my best to fit your budget!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It all starts with discussing the project and going from there. Sometimes blocking out one day in the studio is enough for some projects like voiceover work - other times you might need a whole week or more if you are doing an EP or full length album. For mixing, it can largely depend on the workload, editing and mixing have kind of spilled over into each other these days when working digitally and defining the scope of the project is very important. Once everyone is on the same page, the deposit is paid, the time is booked, and we hit the studio. I keep things very simple by trying to stick to flat rates for the most part with no hidden fees or extra charges. I appreciate knowing costs upfront and I want to treat my clients the same way.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've had years of real world experience running sessions and live concerts and that is knowledge you cannot get anywhere else. I am totally self taught in the audio field. Fortunately for you, I am one of those weirdos that finds manufacturer white papers and technical manuals more interesting than reading fiction. I have spent countless hours, and then MORE countless hours just reading and experimenting with audio in order to educate myself. I love learning new things, or new ways to improve workflow and results.
