Recording Studio Hourly Charges

(updated January 2019)

Standard $40
Student / Unwaged $25
Commercial / Out of Region $65

Our ‘standard’ and ‘student / unwaged’ studio rates are for local musicians. ‘Out of region’ or ‘commercial’ studio clients are subject to a higher rate (currently $65 per hour) as our public funding cannot subsidise non-residents. The region may change from time to time as our funding arrangements change. Our funded region currently includes Palmerston North, Manawatū, Horowhenua, Whanganui, & Rangitikei.

If more than half of your band, group, etc has a job, you are considered waged.

A $60 cancellation fee applies if you give us less than 72 hours notice.

Most recording situations require approximately one hour’s set up time, charged at the normal studio rate.

Please get in touch if you are unsure which charge rate will apply. We are happy to work through this with you.
