I would ask the same.

I agree. There should be a per project fee.

their client asked about the rights for potential usage of the same music in other future projects.

New/diff project = another sync fee. If the media, territory and duration are the same as the initial project, the sync fee should be the same. If they ask for a break, consider giving it to them, as long as a) it's no too much, and b) they know you are giving them a break b/c you have done business together before. This is key; it makes no sense to give someone a lower rate, if they can't appreciate why the rate is lower. Oh, and don't offer a break; let them ask for one.

If the media, territory and duration are not the same as the initial project, then work your way down from there - but def command a per project fee.

Cheers.
