I first want to take a moment to thank all of our previous clients for your support.
When I started Noisebox Studios full time over 11 years ago, I made a commitment to be the best I could be. This has been a very challenging and relentless task in an evolving industry. I’ve always had goals and commitment to be competitive with the very best in the industry and I continue to stive to keep my skillset sharp and current.
I believe I have a great responsibility to make every project the best it can be so that it can reach its highest potential. I am grateful for every project that I have been able to be a part of and I thank you for trusting me to be a part of your dreams and goals.
While I continue to make thoughtful decisions with how I can continue to better serve my clients, I have explored many options. I understand that the cost of recording is an important factor for many of my clients. In response to this, I have incorporated many workflows to be as efficient as possible in the studio. Spending the time to develop these workflows saves you money, but are also important to me so that we can spend time in the studio focusing on being creative instead of spending time on tedious tasks. While I recognize my hourly rate is not the lowest in the area, I always work hard to make every minute count so that the end cost will be very competitive with other recording studios.
In order to continue to move forward with my vision of Noisebox Studios, I have raised my rates to $85/hr. Since I have opened my new space 2.5 years ago, I have made many wonderful upgrades that I feel justify this cost. I have continuously improved the studio by creating better acoustics, better lighting, convenient hearback systems, tons more sound libraries, exceptional speakers (monitors), more boutique microphones including a Neumann U87, Upgraded to a Pro Tools HDX system, Solid State Hard Drives, more software, more outboard gear, etc.
This new rate will help to continue to make the studio even more amazing for all of us. While the space is an amazingly creative space to work in, I am still aware of many things that I can do to still make it better. If you would ever like to give me any of your feedback, I would love to hear it.
Thanks again for all of your support and I look forward to working more on your future projects.
