Tape Costs

Tape is the only extra cost we charge on top of  studio time.  If your recording to hard disc you will not need to buy any tape.

Tape is not cheap. So we have rounded our tape costs into user friendly bundles.

Tape costs for around 4 – 5 songs (around 30 minutes of recording time)  – £110

Tape costs for an album (around 60 minutes of recording time)  – £200

These bundles include a 1/4″ stereo analogue master tape and archive of your hired 2″ multi track tape to digital stems (24 bit 44,100) after your project has been mixed. If further mixing or tracking is required we will of course hang on to the the tape until you are sure the project has been completed.

If you would like to buy all your tape outright you can buy form us or bring your own. You will need at least one of each tape listed below.

2″ tape – £220 (just over 30 minutes recording time)

1/4″ tape – £60 (Just over 30 minutes recording time. £30 small reel 15 minutes)

We use RMG SM900 tape.
