My Rates for Custom Game Music & SFX (2021)

I'm often asked how much I charge for original music for games, so I've written the rate card below, simply to make it easier to discuss cost options with clients. I'm always happy to agree costs on a case by case basis so, if there's a custom agreement that would suit you better, please let me know.

Below are my base charges for original music, per minute of finished music.
