High-End Studio Costs/Rates?

How much to book a high-end studio, and what is typically available gear/engineer/instrument/room wise?

in NYC, $1500 to $2500 per day at book rates.

this gets you a large-format console. an assistant engineer. a large live room with several iso booths. gear selection varies a lot from place to place, but will be excellent at any of them.

and then a good engineer will probably be somewhere between $400 and $1000 a day. perhaps more if you go for someone who's got a real name + real credits.

Sounds about right for many parts of the world, not just NYC.

I agree, the same for LA and Nashville.
