Professional mixers: what do you charge per song?

Professional mixers (meaning your main source of income comes from mixing): what ballpark would you charge to mix a single 3.5 minute song of a four piece indie rock band?

Please include any outboard equipment you'd be likely to use if any.

500 clams a song includes two recalls anything above that is billed hourly at $75/hr. all editing and tuning is $75/hr and only at the artists/labels request (yes, sometimes the labels request tuning without the artist knowing, but hey, who's paying the bill?)... deliver a full mix, tv, instrumental and stems. outboard rarely used and usually only on the 2buss... comps, cranesong stc-8 or manley vari-mu or McAllister SC2 (ssl type of vibe)... EQ... manley massive passive, custom mcallister EQ1 but i prefer to get there without EQ on the 2buss...

120$ pr song. I mix on a D&R Octagon console with great sounding EQs and compression so that's the main 'Outboard' i use

my location dictates lower rates than if i was back in the US.
