What are people paying to record in "local" studios these days? Not home/project stuff but not "we just did the new "x" record that's blowing up" either. Just local, good demo/indie/self-released stuff. I'm curious because I've inquired at two local studios. Both are cool but neither are really known for putting out anything with exceptional sound. Competent but no one with a budget is clamoring to record with them either. It's all local stuff. I inquired about costs for both 2 songs (single) and 5 songs (ep). Track bass, drums, gtr 1 live. Vocals, misc overdubbed. Mix and done. I like to record similarly to Neil Young. Capture a moment. Add a little texture and move on. Both places hit me with prices I thought were silly. One especially. So, I'm curious, given the situation I described what you studio owner/engineers think is fair. 2 songs tracked/mixed. 5 songs tracked/mixed. Moving pretty quickly with a solid band (three-piece). Thanks.
