Do you charge your bandmates to record your music? I'm in a situation where a bandmate has a studio (his full time job), and he is asking me and the bassist to compensate him for his time spent recording his/mine/our music. Something about this bugs me, because I own and bring PA for the band at gigs and do the booking among other things and don't charge for any of that. In addition, the third band member is unable to help out financially because of his low income. In the past I bought some studio gear to pay for studio time, without the 3rd guy pitching in. I want to do things as fairly as possible, and really appreciate the value of the time he puts in in the studio, but don't want to get into the habit of charging each other for things that are just part of being in a band. Part of me feels like if he is really 100% into this band he would do it for free, since that's what I would do. At the same time I realize the time spent working on our own music is time he could spend making money. What should I do in this situation?
