Below are some of Lucid's Concert Recording Packages, perfect for your concert or recital recordings.  All packages include one to four copies of the recording for your archival purposes.  Additional copies are available for additional charges.  See CD Manufacturing for pricing information on additional copies.  Please contact us for additional information. 

You may notice that the Platinum packages below come in "Veritas" and "Enhanced" varieties.  "Veritas" recordings emphasize the truth capturing a recording 'just as it happened'.  "Enhanced" recordings, on the other hand, emphasize an "idealized' version of the recording.  For additional information on these two recording methods, see Choose Reality.

For recording projects that do not fit one of these packages, please contact us to discuss a custom quote specifically defined for your project, or to discuss an hourly rate.
