Well yeah. I mean, you're either cheap or you're a dick if you don't pay that small fee. Personally I'm cheap and I'm unable to pay that fee because every cent that I make goes towards recording equipment such as mics and interfaces and monitors and I'm lucky to make $400 a month. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs or go out to events or go to restaurants, etc,. Opening a project studio is pretty expensive. And it's difficult when you don't make much money at all.
