I live 5,473 miles away from LA. I've visited/passed through on many occasions but never recorded there.

"Around" $2,000 per day, average rates, depending.

They are open to whoever can pay for their time and facilities -- it's a commercial operation, after all. There will be a standard rate card, but most things are negotiable depending on what you want/need, how flexible you can be, and so on.

But as Eddy says, if you want a valid answer you need to make a phone call to the studio....

Is this via the Johnson Dad route or direct? Asking for a MP....

I've recorded in LA and it was too expensive in every way. There are great studios everywhere and the ones I've had the most fun and productive experiences at were off the beaten track. Polymorph in Oakland is run by two of the smartest people I've ever met. One of whom is quite nice :-)
