Commonly Asked Questions

How much will this cost, and how much time does it take to finish a plug-in?

There are a wide variety of factors that can influence the price of a plug-in. Those include:

  • Feature set of the product
  • Complexity of the user interface (UI) design
  • Registration system

The estimated time to complete a project varies widely depending on the product specification. The average time to develop an audio plug-in can range from 4-12 months.

…but I only need a developer for my project!

  • Creating a successful audio plug-in requires the expertise of a team, including software development, product design, digital signal processing (DSP), graphic design, quality assurance, and project management. It is nearly impossible to find one person who can do all of these skills effectively!
  • There are significant risks in working with a single developer. What happens if they get sick, are busy on another project, or decide to stop communicating?
  • We develop using a multi-disciplinary, team-based approach. Each member of our team specializes in an area that is complimentary to their skillset, allowing you to get a specialist developing on all parts of your plug-in.
