Concert Recording:

CanSona’s recording services are billed at $60.00 per hour, including time for set-up and tear-down. Generally recording a concert will cost between $180.00 and $240.00, which includes the preparation of a finished CD. Further copies of the CD are provided at $5.00 per unit.

Demo Recording:

The cost of making a demo recording varies, depending on a number of factors. For example, whether you are recording at a recording studio or on location, how well prepared you are to record the music, how much post-production mixing and editing is involved, and so on. Generally, a good demo-recording can be done for anywhere between $500.00 and $1,500.00.

CD Production:

Depending on many factors, the preparation and manufacture of a CD can vary a good deal. Regardless of the cost of the recording and preparation of the material, manufacturing costs are normally around $1.50 to $2.00 per unit, depending on the number produced. A very well prepared performer, requiring a minimum amount of recording time, post-production editing and mixing, and with a relatively simple presentation can get a package of 500 CDs for as little as $4,000.00. A very complicated package involving a larger contingent of musicians and a special package could easily climb to $10,000.00 or more. We can help to minimize your costs by advising on the best approach at each facet of the production.

Editing & restoration

CanSona can undertake editing and polishing of previously recorded material, and bring it to completion.  We can often bridge the gap between an unsatisfying production and the clients’ goals.  We can also restore older recordings into good quality digital format, cleaning much of the noise associated with older technology.  Costs are based on the time required to find the right solution to improve the material, but clients should bear in mind that moving data from a linear-based format (i.e. tape or LP) takes equivalent time – a one-hour recording takes at least an hour to input.  Services are billed at $60.00 per hour.

Video Recording:

Once again, depending on how prepared an artist is, costs for making a video presentation can vary. However, excellent audio & video recording services can be had for as little as $1,500.00 per day.
