Yea. Why use an artificial head when you already have a perfectly good real one?

Because the words "artificial" and "intelligence" are more frequently seen together...

Guy: "How much do you charge for mixing"

Me: Names a very competitive and reasonable rate

Guy: "Woah, that's 5 times what I pay to have my stuff mixed and mastered"

Me: "Yeah, then that guy is either making $5 an hour or spending 15 mins on your mix."

Guy: "Nah"

Over-confidant bassist, after being recorded for two+ hours for a 3 minute long walking line...
Getting very late, I told him not to worry, that his track could be fixed. He gets all pissy... "Nobody comps me!" He leaves for the evening upset, threatening to quit the band if we 'fix' it.
Spend another couple hours comping his track. Sounds right.
Next day he comes by... listens with a big smile, then... "See, I told you I wasn't off time... (and again) Nobody comps me!"
Then I showed him all the little 'slice-lines' in his stem... a bunch of skinny little lines. He's confused... I explain why they exist.


He did quit... Best thing for him, really.

People should never try to negotiate the price for a given service, you either accept it, or find someone for cheaper, that's it. It's common sense for so many reasons.

one negotiation that can work (on me anyway) is 'bundling'. If someone says how much for a song, and I say "x" and then they say well actually I have ten songs that need to be mixed, then I might be able to do something.
