Default OT- What is the charge to get a small studio setup

What would be the fee for setting up and configuring a small project studio for a complete newbe? Computer, software, audio interface, midi interface, several sound modules, mixer and a few outboard effects processors. Ballpark estimates OK. Thanx

You could do a great job for about $10,000. Mix magazine and Electronic Musician magazine occationally run articles like this. Give their sites a search.

>>A "FEE" ???
I think poster thinks consultation only, not equipment..unless this is the going rate
It would work out to be 200 hours @ $50/hour...Very generous, me thinks...

This would be hookup, labor & consultation , newbe buys the gear.

SaxMan,

It hugely depends on how much i/o you want, what level pre's and mics you want, the primary genre, etc.

We need more info.

Cheers,
Chris

Primarily Hip-Hop, the mixer is 14 channels Alesis, Daw is not PT yet

Alesis mixer, keyboard, nanoverb & compressor, Roland & EMU sound modules
MAudio Quattro & midiman 4 x 4, Berhinger headphone amp, also small ART mic pre.
This person has tried several other people for help before but they just stole some of his stuff. The whole thing is hooked up incorrectly (cables running across mixer etc), needs to torn down & started again. Thanx for the quick replies & the help..

Oh, so this is a gig you're looking to do yourself for a pal...gotcha.

I would look at the setup as it is and estimate how many hours it would take you (or full days) and give him an estimate of b/w $50 and $75/hr (if he's in the atlanta area). I would charge more if it meant actually fixing anything, but since it's just setup/consultation, than a $50 to $75/hr fee is very reasonable. If you're expected to teach and train the person as you go along, definitely charge more. Knowledge is worth money and many industries are built on not giving it away for free.

If you are trying to find out and get a "feel" as to how much other people would charge to do it your self?
well....that would depend in how good you are, if you've done it before, and if you consider yourself qualified to do it properly.

But as my man Chris said, $50 to $75 per hour is not a bad deal.
