Give em all the copies they want just leave their instrument off the rough mix, or vocals, Ive done both.
A three stooges eye poke while yelling mutton head works for me every time.

Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.
Voxengo makes a VST plug that puts random beeps/noises on a mix while rendering.
That said -- If they're all paid up, it's really their's to do what they want.
THAT said, EVERYONE is going to ask what those "beeps" are - Which sort of forces them to explain that they're not finished mixes. Everyone wins.
On the flip side, you could work towards making it sound good from the get-go. That is what I aim for. If I'm not getting the sound I want to hear later on, what the hell am I doing?
Mixing is over rated. Get the sound now and give them what they want.
That's what they're paying you for.
if the songs were any good people wouldn't comment on the mix. so you are an eye opener really.
Only had this problem once or twice, but it usually goes something like:
"Hey, can we get some rough mixes?"
Thanks, everyone. Some good ideas here. (Maybe I'll make the rough mixes really, really horrible sounding so the band won't want to let their friends listen.)
I'll probably end up just giving them excerpts instead of whole songs. That might work too.
