They'll ask for the session files or they'll ask to bring you session
files they did elsewhere - other studios or at home.

More true than false, but that's a different sort of issue. office
workers drive Office. Pro Tools users in a studio don't. That's Josh's
job. Problem is it comes down to data going in and out of the studio.
(In my experience - I've been on both ends, and even in the middle
once negoitiating with a studio owner for a band.)
