Upgrade to Pro Tools HD12!


We're very excited to announce that we have upgraded to Pro Tools HD 12 running on our HDX (DSP) system. This is Avid's top Pro Tools system and there are many new features. We're noticing a definite improvement in speed and efficiency, but most importantly, in quality. We opted for the perpetual license so that we will always be up to date. Come experience this new marvel!

Patrick McGuire Recording Inc. Rates


As many of you are aware, we have not had a rate increase since 1999!  At the same time, we've greatly increased our investment in equipment and capability. We’ve actually had clients advising us for quite some time now that our rates are too low!  We’ve always put a high priority on keeping rates affordable, and the increase introduced here will keep us that way, but will allow us to make a reasonable profit.  This increase will actually put us at a rate, when adjusted for inflation, lower than our rate after any of our previous increases!  The chart below shows our rate at different years and the same rate adjusted for inflation in 2014 dollars. See our "Rates" page for all the new rates.
