How about just a stereo board recording on usb or CD. What should that cost?

Basically the cost of the media.  Board dubs are "reference only" or "souvenir" recordings.  They're pretty worthless for any group with significant on-stage sound.  For acoustic acts or other un-amplified stuff I'd say it's negotiable depending on how serious they want it to be.  The more importance they put on it, the more attention it will take and the more it's worth.

Great point. I hadn't thought of that. I'd imagined the first option mostly, but hasn't considered redundant operation.

Any other wildly different prices? So far I've got $100-200 for a 48 channel non redundant multitrack off a nice console, plus an option for redundancy for extra $.

$250 here, they get a DVD or I will give a thumb drive for $275.
If a recording guy is needed its his time plus $250 +20% more.

How do you fit it on a little DVD?
My 24 track recordings of a gig can easily get over 20gb.

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

I'd like to pick something middle of the road. That's for the info, feel free to continue to post prices at your venues. I might just average out the responses, and double it for a redundant recording.

We based our fee on the cost of the gear necessary to make it happen and how quickly we wanted it to pay for itself.

32gb on USB is relatively cheap these days. Media cost could be extra if they don't supply their own.  Do a refundable deposit with a minor media rental fee if they don't want to buy it outright.

I'd say keeping a supply of appropriate sized flash drives on hand and charging enough extra to cover the media cost should be pretty easy.

For question for touring engineers and venue engineers in the 300-1500 cap club / theatre market: What is the going rate to charge an artist for multitrack recordings straight off of one of the consoles? The boss at one of my venues wants to get something like a Digico UB MADI for our SD9 and charge artists for multitracks. A venue in the District is doing $100, which seems like a deal if they are free to use it. What rates have you guys seen?

Seems like we should up our rate!
We charge $50, for either a stereo board feed, or a 32ch multitrack.  Either way, with our Profiles>FWx>Pro Tools, the recording itself is just a few mouse clicks of extra work.   The client is responsible for bringing their own media.  We will transfer the recording to their storage during load out.  If they don't bring something to put it on, we are happy to upload it to a filesharing site (the 2 tracks, anyway) or burn to DVD later in the week.  All converting/exporting/mixing etc that happens after the show day is charged at an hourly supervisor rate, 4 hr minimum.  We are looking at providing custom branded flash drives (at a markup) for next season, since in practice the client hardly ever remembers to bring media... not that that'll help w/ a 20-40 GB PT session...

This is in a PAC with 950 & 250 seat theaters, Profile w Pro Tools in each room.

Normally 2 disks will do for our stuff, but I have thought about going to all jump drives.
