There are mitigating circumstances of course, but if the client has supplied everything as requested and is unhappy it falls on the professional to sort this, in any industry.
Right. I have an unlimited free revisions policy which basically never gets abused and if it does, I have the right to cut my losses and say goodbye which has happened a time or two over the years, very rare.

I only charge a nominal fee if the revision requires a new mix or mixes be sent, because then usually a lot of backtracking needs to happen.

Even then, if it's just one song of an album, and the client has been otherwise easy to work worth with, I might let that charge slide.

But, if the new mix or mixes represent over 50% of the total project, it's hard to let a new mix slide without at least bringing this up.

Usually with my workflow, a revision request is very easily done in the digital domain and not a big deal. All part of the job.
