        How do you decide what to put into a contract for either recording, mixing, production, etc? What if things come up that isn't in the contract how does that get handled?

        I know huge questions but it's this part of music that's a bit confusing. Thanks!

          Warren, you've been giving us great live hour long mixing tutorials on Youtube which are very informative. How long, generally, does it take you to mix a track from start to finish? What time frame do you give your clients?

            Would like to hear a thorough discussion of rates for recording, mixing, mastering, for beginners through experienced, by the hour, track, album, etc. Also how location might affect rates (I live in a rural area where there's no local competition.) Thanks!

              I hope I am able to view this but if unfortunately I am unable, what would you suggest for someone just starting out? I have been producing EDM for a few years but I've finally found my calling in mixing. I did put a little plan together to get myself to a decent standard then proceed to scouting for bands/artists that are unheard of, maybe offering them my services for a few songs or their first album at a very cheap price, or even for free. Then if they like what I've done we could form a bit more of a relationship and I would charge for their next album.

              Would this be a good idea? or will I be wasting a lot of time I could be spending bettering my skills?

              Is there companies/labels that I could eventually send a portfolio over to, and hope that I would work for them? or should I be focussing more on freelancing?

                What are the best entities to register music with beyond ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, etc? What about others like SongTradr?

                A truckload of thanks to all of ya at PLAPA and Spitfire Studios for taking on this topic!!

                  Hope I made it this week.

                  wondering you views on separate instruments bus/vocal bus before the master chain.

                  I've been trying this out lately, and the benefit i see is when using a bus compressor (SSL usually, waves) it makes it a little easier to get the vocals to sit ontop of the mix as the compression of the instruments doesnt affect the vocal. What are you thoughts?

                    The last business Q&A was great. I'd love to hear a discussion of how we get the most out of DistroKid, Sound Exchange, etc.
