Now in its eleventh year
of operation specializing in CD projects, Raptor
Studios is selective in the projects it accepts due to
a production schedule booked several months in advance.
To contact us regarding a recording
project please read the following, fill out and print the Inquiry Form, and mail it to Raptor Studios, PO
Box 1455, Fargo, ND 58103. If you prefer, you may also email us with
the information contained on the form.
RATES: $35 per hour.
SCHEDULING: All projects are scheduled on a lock-out basis,
which means we work on one project at a time. A full CD project
typically takes 3-8 weeks, with rare extremes on either end of
the spectrum (the record for quickest CD is 3 weeks; for the
longest, 6 months - aaackk).
DEPOSIT: A deposit of $500 is required to confirm
a project's starting date. The amount of the deposit is credited
to the final bill. This deposit "locks in" the agreed-upon
start date, and is refundable up until 30 days before that date.
INITIAL CONSULTATION: Typically, a meeting is scheduled between serious
prospective clients and Mike
Coates, Raptor Studios owner/producer/engineer and Linda
Coates, Raptor Studios owner/business manager/graphic designer.
The specifics of the proposed project are discussed including
the music and arrangements, budget, the recording process itself,
graphic design, manufacturing, etc. An approximate timeline is
developed and a block of time is scheduled. Projects at Raptor
Studios are usually scheduled at least three months in advance.
