What really makes a difference in the SOUND of recording studios?
Back in the day, it was $250,000 worth of equipment, an acoustically-designed room, and a good engineer and producer. But THAT was easy to find. ALL studios had that. NOW for $5000 or less, anyone can buy equipment, open their doors, and they're a "recording studio"
ALL computer-based recording systems and "studios in a box" are excellent sounding INSIDE the BOX!
But WHAT are you putting INTO it?
Nobody buys a guitar Monday and does a gig that Saturday! Unfortunately, lots of folks buy recording equipment, and start charging people $20 or $25 an hour to record them, without learning their equipment, developing their skills, or gaining the much-needed experience they need!
I've been a professional recording engineer since 1986, Check out my equipment arsenal. Call or e-mail me and I'll send you my demo CD. Then get a CD from ALL the studios that you're considering and LISTEN! WHY?
Because it's really all about the SOUND!
Also remember, $20 an hour isn't a bargain if it takes 5 times as long to record it because the studio doesn't have the space, equipment, or experience to record it all at one time. AND it's really hard to get a good groove happening if you're not playing together.
REMEMBER - You're buying TIME!
Good studios know their craft, have ENOUGH equipment and the experience to record MUCH FASTER, SAVE you money, AND give you BETTER SOUND.
I GUARANTEE you that as fast as you can play it or sing it right, I'll have it recorded right!
