Pricing and Ordering

Custom Tracks

The price for a custom-ordered standard song is $200. A standard song is one that is less than 4 minutes in length and has a maximum of 4 parts. With your purchase you will receive:

  • Part-left mixes – For each part there is a mix where the part in question is panned fully to the left, with the other parts fully panned to the right. The part in question is also balanced to be louder than the other parts combined so that it will be predominant in the mix, even if you do not have the capability of changing the balance on your system.
  • Stereo mix – This mix is balanced and evenly panned to emulate a quartet recording so that you can hear what the final product should sound like.
  • Intro track – This is a quick recording that states the name and starting key of the song and plays a few seconds of the starting pitch on an electronic pitch pipe. You can choose to include this track before any, all, or none of your tracks during playback.

Library Tracks

There are currently over 800 songs in our library of pre-recorded songs available for instant download. Library tracks are priced based on the number of parts and length of the song, with the price listed beside the song in question. All library tracks are sold as-is. There may be slight alterations from the sheet music based on the request of the original group who ordered the song. We recommend purchasing the full stereo mix to preview the song before ordering the full package. All songs in the library have full-mix previews available for purchase.

We cannot provide sheet music for any copyrighted or public domain songs. Most songs are available through the Barbershop Harmony Society or directly through the arranger. If you cannot find the arranger’s contact information through a simple Google search (e.g. search for “Tom Gentry arrangements” (without the quotation marks) in a Google search bar), we may be able to help you find that information.

Other Services

We can provide the following services for an additional fee:

  • More than 4 parts. Custom songs with more than 4 parts are prorated based on the number of additional parts.
  • Songs 4 minutes in length or longer. Songs of longer length are prorated based on each additional minute beyond the 3:59 minute mark.
  • Transposition to Women’s Key. We can change the key for library tracks to a key suitable for female singers. You would need to request this in the same manner as a custom track order. The price for transposition is $20 in addition to the existing price of the library track for a standard-length song. Longer songs may include a higher fee.
  • Rush Orders. If you need your custom tracks right away, we can negotiate a price to make that happen.

You can learn about and pay mechanical licensing fees by going to the appropriate agency for your country. (Harry Fox (www.harryfox.com) for US customers; CMRRA (www.cmrra.ca) for Canadian customers; others please do a search for Mechanical Licensing within your own country.) Mechanical licensing fees are collected to pay royalties to the copyright owners. The arranger owns the copyright on any public domain song.
