If you recorded all your tracks for your new song(s) in your own studio. And then wanted to mix them down at a real nice studio. With a high dollar console. Which way is the best way to approach the owner so that you will get the best deal. The last 2 or 3 times we went to a bigger studio we just payed whatever the owner asked for. Typically they wanted an hourly rate. Does this sound like the best way or which of these suggestions might be better overall... 1) pay per song 2) pay per hour 3) pay flat price to mixdown all the songs **** or any other way that I did not list Has anybody else done as me and gone to a larger studio to mixdown? And what did you do about keeping the cost to a minimum?
