Live Instrumental Tracks

Some things aren't right without live players. A lot of the songs we compose and arrange for our clients are recorded with samples by our composers and arrangers. These are included in the composer's/arranger's rates. But you can't get a sample to sound like a lead horn line or a melodic cello line. That's why we offer our clients an opportunity to put live players on their songs.

We have top quality, seasoned session players who play virtually every instrument imaginable (and then some).  Our rates for this service are simple.


We have two classes of musicians who record for us:

  • Union musician rates are as low as $30.00 an hour plus 10% of scale wages for Health & Welfare and 10% of scale wages for Pension (Demo rate). Click here to see all the rates and requirements. If you have any questions, contact us here.
  • Musicians outside of the American Federation of Musicians' (AFM) juristiction are paid $100.00 an hour per player.

We calculate 12 minutes needed of recording time per minute of music with a one hour minimum.
