Plans & Pricing
Q: How much does Cut Time cost? I see three different prices on the website, can you explain the differences?
A: There are several pricing options:
$99 is the cost for a Single Ensemble subscription.
This plan gives you full access to Cut Time for use with a single group. It is ideal for churches and for community bands, choirs and orchestras where an organization is managing a single ensemble. It could also be a school with one choir or one band, or a school who simply wanted to use it for managing their marching band.
$299 is the cost for Unlimited Ensembles.
This is ideal for a band, choir or orchestra with multiple ensembles to manage. It is possible to use one Unlimited Ensemble subscription to manage ALL of your groups by assigning administrative rights to a few teachers or leaders.
We are also finding many groups interested in having their own license within a school. For example, the band department may want to manage all of its ensembles with one Unlimited Ensemble subscription and the choral department do likewise. In this case, we offer discounted licenses for multiple Unlimited Ensemble subscriptions.
2-5 Licenses within a school or district, the price drops to $199 each with greater discounts available for six or more licenses within the same school district or organization. Please contact a Cut Time Consultant for details on district-level pricing.
Q: I have my orchestra separated into three different performance groups, and some musicians participate in two of the groups. Does this still count as one ensemble?
A: No, this would be considered three different ensembles. Members can participate in more than one ensemble and Cut Time will not duplicate their records. It will be easier to communicate with individual ensembles if they are created as separate groups.
Q: Is Cut Time available for use outside the United States?
A: While it is likely Cut Time will work with any internet connection, the platform was designed with its primary intended use to be within the United States. Cut Time's Terms of Service states, in part:
