So, I offered a few packages for 25-45 bucks depending on what you include.
My gigs were with 0 revisions for the price which means I charged for every revision but exceptions were that I have offered revision free of charge in case they are willing to wait for my next session. Delivery time was usually around 3-4 days.
The main problem besides customers was that I didn’t have the appropriate conditions to work without stress.
I had to pay for a rehearsal studio and by that lose some money. Recording preparation lasted too long and if I got lucky everything will work on my laptop.
If anything does not go well like for ex. a laptop missed recording a snare drums channel or something like I that I would need to go again tomorrow and pay even more.
I didn’t have an appropriate laptop for mixing. Have in mind that programs like Cubase, Pro Tools, Nuendo… will drain down your RAM memory, sound card and a processor so you need to have a very good computer in order to do this smoothly.
Exporting time is a story for itself on a lousy computer it can last too long and if something is not right you need to wait again.
To sumarize, it was suffer but the biggest issue was not a computer, conditions or little money but the customers.
