Collaborations

I'm always willing to be a part of a song or larger project.


Composition

Composition commissions are closed.

Base Price: TT$100 (paid upfront)
Working Price: TT$50 per hour (paid upon completion)

I'm am open to working on various projects:

  • Songs with vocals
  • Soundtracks or background music
  • Remixing of your songs
  • Anything else that includes music

To commission music, please describe your ideas and concepts in detail, send references, and/or send any material you may already have (such as lyrics or melodies) and information such as the length of the song, the language for the lyrics, the amount of vocalists, etc. If your commission is accepted, you will be added to the queue.

You may stay in the queue indefinitely, and can cancel at any time before work on your commission begins. You will be notified when you reach at the top of the queue, and you will have two weeks to respond. If there is no response after two weeks, you'll be automatically placed at the bottom of the queue. If you're the only person in the queue, another notice will be sent and if there is no response after the additional two weeks, you'll be removed from the queue.

When you have reached the top of the queue, you will able to pay the base price. At that point, I will write short concept pieces based on the ideas you gave. When you select one, the timer will be started. At this point, the base price is non-refundable. If you choose none of the concepts, 50% of the base fee will be refunded to you.

Once your commission has started, periodical updates will be sent when significant progress has been made (in addition with the time spent, and the current total working price), or when requested. If you would like to stop partway through, you can either cancel the commission entirely, or receive the partially completed section for the appropriate price.

OTO Commissions

Price: TT$1 (One Trinidad and Tobago Dollar) = 5 lines

The price is regardless of voicebank type (CV, VCV, CVVC, etc.). All prices are rounded to the nearest fifty cents.

You can use this calculator to get an estimate on how much a commission will cost.

For example, a CV Japanese bank of 100 lines will cost TT$20.

Multiset Discount - 20%

If your bank has multiple pitches, or multiple expressions/appends, it is eligible for the multiset discount. This bank however must use the same reclist throughout the banks to be eligible for this discount.

For a CV Japanese bank of 100 lines with 5 sets, the cost will be TT$80.

Association for Speech and Singing Synthesis Scripts Discount - 10%

If you use a reclist from one of the members of ASSSS (here is a list of their reclists), you are eligible for this discount.

For a bank using CVVSors, a reclist of 2,194 lines, the cost will be TT$395.

Returning Customer - 10%

Specify which voicebank you've commissioned from me.

Stacking

Multiple discounts can be applied to a commission. For example, if your bank uses CVVSors list of 2,194 lines and has 7 sets, the cost will be TT$2,150.
