Wolf’s Den Studios offers the above services using a flat rate per song model. With a flat rate you know exactly how much it will cost you to get your songs done before we even begin the process. We recognize that every project is unique and we are confident that our flat rate pricing offers you significant savings over the per-hour pricing schemes of most other studios. Our per-song rate removes the uncertainty and worry about the final price tag of your project. 🙂

Every mix we do includes up to two rounds of revisions based on your feedback. This three mix approach (our initial mix, plus two more revised mixes) is the ideal way to get your valuable input onto the mix. We are able to accomplish this quickly and efficiently, because we want you to love how your song sounds.
