Pre-Production Services

Paranoyd Sound offers cost effective options for pre-production services that will help you to properly prepare your projects before cutting the final master and/or stepping into a more expensive studio. A little pre-production can be beneficial in a number of ways including saving you time and money. As Wikipedia describes it, in the music industry, pre-production is a process whereby a recording artist spends time creating and refining their musical ideas. The artist thus produces a song’s demo recording, or rough draft, in order to pre-establish the song’s creative promise. This reduces the time and money spent in expensive studios. The goal is to enter into the major recording phase of production with the basic and most promising ideas having been already established. Our regular studio rates apply for pre-production services. Studio A is $70.00/hour, $65/hour for 6+ hours, or $60/hour for 12+ hours (including our top engineer/producer). These bulk blocks are paid in full up front and can then be split up into multiple sessions accordingly. *Studio B is available for rental at a rate of $25.00 per hour or $160.00 for an 8 hour block (clients must provide a competent engineer). *All prices subject to 5% GST
