I'm completely out of the loop about this but hear me out. Let's say that I want to record some stuff that's the length of a 3 song demo or so, but I wanted it to be album/studio quality. If I went into a big, GOOD studio and had most of the DI tracks, midi files, all of that stuff already prepared, how long do you think it would take to record and how much would it cost? I'm talking for the tracking and the mixing, no mastering, that'll come later. Basically, if I had my shit together and ready to go and wanted to make an awesome demo/EP in a big, fancy studio - I want some ideas of what prices I'll be looking at. The time it would take too. I know that rates and time vary and there are lots of things to consider, but if I were given a ballpark that'd be great. I'll be paying for this directly out of my own pocket, so yeah.
