Home Studio Rates

Guideline Pricing in Dollars

After spending some time review home studio work on the internet and seeing the general given rates, I have put together this card as a guideline. Prices are negotiable dependent on the type of work, company and budget in hand. If you would like more information please use the contact above.

Length of the Voice Over: There are two ways to do this:

1 – Time basis: Based on the actual time the recording will be
(Ie: 30 seconds, 60 seconds, 20 minutes, 1 hour et al)

2 – Word basis (paging): Based on the number of words or pages the script has.
One page contains 250 words on average (Arial 12 pt double spacing).

Total Word Count: is associated to the rate I would normally read which varies on each project.
Steady 100 words per minute –  faster 150 words per minute.
500 – 750 per 5 minutes = Total Minutes of finished audio, or edited, mastered and delivered to client.

N.B. Please not that if you intend to use 4 syllable words, you should count these as two words.
