Tagalong Policy
On rough mixing day, if your band wants to be around, we charge an extra $5 an hour, making it $45 an hour. If we do the mixing on our own, it will still be the standard rate of $40 per hour, and there will of course still be the chance for you to come listen to the final mix and make changes. We’re doing this not because we don’t like you, but because now we have a second and third mixing room where we’ll be doing the majority of our mixing. Unfortunately, it does not have a lounge area, so if you are around during mixing, we can work on your project only, whereas otherwise we can record someone else while another engineer is mixing another band in Studio B or C. Plus, it works to your benefit to not be around during the initial mixing because a lot of it is mundane stuff that will bore even the most interested person. Many times bands will talk during the mixing stage if they are around, and that might hurt the mix by talking too much or too loud. It takes us longer to mix if it has to be played louder, not to mention fatiguing the ears that much faster with the extra noise. With that said, we hope you understand.

Mixing with self recorded tracks
We STRONGLY suggest that if you use a porta-studio that you use one with Direct-Outs on every track, or you will waste a ton of time aligning tracks two at a time in the computer. This is just some friendly advice to save you some cash.

We have raised our rates when working with tracks that artists recorded themselves - we now charge $45 an hour, the reason being that it's many times MUCH MORE difficult to make it sound like the quality of work we here at the Cow want people to associate with us.

If you want to save some cash, the real key is to practice like a madman, know your songs, and then come in and lay down the tracks. Even an extremely rough mix here many times sounds tons better than what someone would do without the benefit of the right gear and expertise. We've spent thousands of dollars on nice gear and thousands of hours on perfecting our craft so you don't have to.
