What is a day?

We define a day as a good amount of time in which you, your band, and the engineer feel comfortable working. Most sessions usually start around noon and continue until that days work is done or everyone is tired. While we don't mind you using less than a days worth of studio time, we highly frown upon sessions which come close to or run for 24 hours a day.

We charge by the day for your convenience, so you don't have to watch the clock and we don't have to charge an additional "Lock-out" fee when you use more than one day in a row.

When should you book?

We recommend booking your session 3 months in advance, especially for a longer session, but feel free to call us because there are always holes in the schedule here and there.

Client Offices?

We have four client offices, and the price is the same no matter how many of the rooms you use per day.

When should you pay?

You should arrive at the studio with the means to pay for your session. If your band is coming from a country other than the United States or if a third party is paying for the recording, than we will require a wire transfer for full payment of the session prior to the first day of the session. We do not accept credit cards.

What is a traveling rate?

Steve Albini is available to travel for recording sessions. His fee is $1000.00 a day; it is expected that whatever studio you plan on having Steve work in be a fully operating analog recording studio. It is expected that the client pay for days in which he is traveling over, along with providing lodging and incidental costs (shipping of gear/materials, taxi cabs to and from airports, etc.) Please email or call the studio for more information.
