You can read about the program on Apples site here, and if you still want more info this article from NPR does a good job explaining the program in detail.
Per song rates:
- As a general guideline, I charge a $400 per song if I am mixing in my studio. If the project requires renting a commercial studio for mixing than this is of course taken in to account. Most projects average about 2 songs per day, some more some less, but it is always best to discuss project goals and budgets directly as there are lots of factors which can make this number adjust up or down to best suit the needs of your project.
- I can offer you a customized quote for a full production that includes any and all costs related to, pre-production, audio engineering and production services, studio time, professional musicians, mixing, and mastering. Since the needs of every project are unique I find it is always best to craft a quote that is tailored to your specific needs. To request a personalized quote click here.
