Factors Impacting The Cost Of Recording A Song

There are standalone reasons that determine the cost of recording a song.

If you want to make decisions that won’t hurt your finances, you got to consider these reasons before paying a dime.

Read on!

1.  Genre Of Song

Obviously, one of the major factors impacting the inflation and the deflation of the price of recording a song in Nigeria is the genre of the song.

In my findings, the worship or gospel music genre is hyper-expensive due to its technicality and having to hire backup singers and instrumentalists.

Again, there’s an exception, if the song is solemn and soul-bending then you’ll only need a skilled keyboardist and other much-needed instrumentalists.  

2.  Geographical Location

A producer located in a less attractive area will likely lower the cost of recording a song. Do you know why?

He may be getting less traction and low sales.

On the other hand, music recording studios located in urban areas where businesses thrive, are more likely to charge more.

Now, the cost of recording a song is not limited by the geographical location of the said studio. But it’s worth pointing out.

Because some of the studios located in unindustrialized areas but more potential musicians will likely charge more too. 

Secondly, the quality of your music is not determined by sophisticated instruments. You might be tempted to think that way.

For example, if a recording studio has sophisticated instruments with an unskilled producer definitely the instruments are useless, right?

That out of the way, one thing you should put into consideration when choosing a cost is; the producer’s skillfulness and affordability.

3.  Brand popularity

A big brand or music recording studio is likely to charge more than usual, because of the integrity they’ve in the industry.

Take, for example, Cohbams Asuquo produces a song for you. He would charge roughly 500, 000 thousand naira for just recording.

To see the price of popular Nigerian producers, look it up here.

Do you know why?

His popularity may likely sell your music on the fly by carrying his brand’s label on the track alone.

4.  Recording Time Packages

A ton of Nigerian recording studios charge based on an hourly or daily basis. As such, the price is mostly determined by how many takes it takes to record a song.

What I mean is, how long it takes you to record a song will determine the cost. So, before you go for recording studios in this bucket.

You should have gotten acquainted with the lines and rhythm of the song. Or else you will spend outrageously without results.

How To Choose The Right Cost For Recording A Song?

So, now you are acquainted with the factors affecting the cost of recording a song.

1.   Don’t come off as a wealthy person.

This is huge. I will tell you this categorically, the first impression determines how people will relate with you forever.

So, it’s better you come off as a guy who is hustling and needs sponsors. If you come off as a guy with a fat bank account, trust me, you will be swindled Intellectually.

Nevertheless, buoyant financially? great! But, what I know is, we don’t make money by squandering it.

2.   Be authentic

In the course of gathering data for this article, I met a ton of producers, something pretty interesting cut across them all.

If you’re looking to record a blockbuster song being transparent and trustworthy about what you want will suffice.

You will come to terms with me on the fact that most artists are proud and unreliable because they try to live to please their fans.

So, when they get to the recording studios that highhanded lifestyle reflects in their manner of communication and diction.

Of course, no one likes arrogant people, right?  

In fact, I highly recommended that you be authentic with the producer as to how much you can offer for their services.

3.   Don’t Plead

In my opinion, pleading for free stuff or a reduction in price isn’t necessary. Do you know why?

Every music producer has a standard to maintain, that’s however summed up as the necessary gadgets needed for quality music production.

If you want to get top-notch and well-mastered sounds you have to pay them handsomely, the reasons being that, some might be tempted to use substandard instruments or pay less attention to the production process.

Now I’m not saying you should spend recklessly, but compensate them for work well done. A marketable song is one that is well mastered.

Wrapping up – How Much It Cost To Record a song In Nigeria?

The price of recording a song cannot be determined because the price is affected by numerous factors as I’ve highlighted upfront.

So, recording studio time packages predominantly impact the price of recording in Nigeria. If you want to stick with that, you’ve got to master it to the latter before approaching any recording studio.

That is out the way, that’s all I have for you in this episode of cost of recording a song.
