thankfully i haven't had to deal with any 192 mix requests. we did one tracking session at 192 for a japanese label with a freelance engineer. 192 really bums me out. and i'm into striving for higher quality. it just bums me out since it's basically a catchy marketing catch phrase...

I think the per song thing is in mot cases a highly flawed concept. it's nearly impossible to get it right, and in almost every situation, either you are working too hard for the fee, or the client is paying too much for the mix... a piano trio record with 9 mics is a very different mix than an elec...

I'd say get some buddies with construction experience, take a weekend off from family life, and sheetrock the shit out of that thing. A good crew could get any garage done in two days. Better to just do that way since it's known to work, and there is no risk. If neighbors and working at night are th...
