Skunkworks Recording Studio room is $60 per hour – with a 2 hr minimum.

On average at a Calgary recording studio, in Calgary AB, you might expect to pay anywhere from CAD $50 to CAD $200 per hour for studio time. This rate typically includes the use of the studio’s facilities and equipment, as well as the services of a sound engineer. Music production isn’t cheap.

In addition, you will likely need multiple hours to record a song. This time includes setting up, sound checking, recording multiple takes, and breaks. It is not unusual for a single song to take 4 to 8 hours or even a full day to record, depending on its complexity. After the recording, you also have to consider the cost of mixing and mastering the song, which can vary from CAD 200 to CAD 500 per song or more.

Please note that these are average costs and can vary significantly. Some high-end studios with a long history and high-profile clientele may charge considerably more. Conversely, smaller or home studios may charge less. Always remember to inquire about what is included in the cost, and consider your budget alongside the quality and style you want for your recording. The best option will depend on your specific needs, preferences, and resources.
