ALL RATES INCLUDE JORDAN AS YOUR ENGINEER
HOW THE DAYS WORK
We consider a day to be about 10 hours which includes set up and breaks. Sessions run from 11am - 9pm.
A typical 4 piece band might use their time as follows:
- 3 to 5 days recording bed tracks.
- 2 to 3 days recording overdubs and/or vocals.
- 2 to 5 days mixing.
Multiple overdubs, studio experimentation with other instruments, multiple vocal takes, difficult instrument setups, intricate mixing, all take time. Give us a call - we can help you figure out how much time you’ll need.
FERRY BONUS ON 7+ Days
* Sessions 7 days or more include ferry travel to the studio. The Noise Floor will issue you a ferry travel card which will cover the cost of ferry travel for 1 vehicle and up to 4 passengers from Vancouver to Nanaimo and/or Nanaimo to Gabriola Island.
A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking.
Dates will not be confirmed until a deposit is made.
The balance is due on the last day of the session.
Deposits are non-refundable.
