1 Sound engineering work on the show day starts by preparation for the show and ends by leaving the venue after the show is packed. Travel time to and from the venue longer than 1 hour is counted in as workday hours.
2 Please note these are minimum prices for my sound engineering work. The actual prices may differ according to your show’s needs, unusual added responsibility and the country of the spectacle.
3 Ensemble has up to 12 members, chamber orchestra has up to 40 members, symphonic orchestra has more than 40 members.
4 Working as commercial FOH, opera, theatre or rental tech includes one mid band5, one monitors from FOH8 and accompanying sound engineering, such as speech or playback music. Commercial FOH are shows with the intent of (non)direct profit.
5 Small band has up to 3 members, mid band has up to 6 members, large band has more than 6 members.
6 This hour rate will be charged in addition to the show day fee for tasks such as preparation before the show day, production communication, reviewing riders, a visit to the venue of your choice, making a list of equipment needed for your show, arranging external equipment rental, transport of rented equipment, creating time schedule and other necessary tasks according to your show’s needs.
7 A blocked day is a day needed for travel to / from the place of your show, or a day of sleep needed after the show day, when the work ends later than 2 AM.
8 This fee is separate to allow for lower FOH sound engineer cost for bands with their own monitor engineer or bands with own IEM mixing console solution.

10 Multitrack recording fee contains setting up audio interface(s), recording computer(s) or other recording equipment, optional setup of additional microphones and verifying gain settings for the recording. The result is a multitrack recording without postproduction, ready to be mixed.
