Why Pay More? Commercial Studioizm


I am very happy about being a musician and where I am right now. I kind of knew that things were going to go digital when I got my first PC. The PC has revolutionized the recording industry and stimulated an economy for independent musicians and artists and a very positive way. Unfortunately major record labels and commercial studios have suffered from the localization of project recording on laptops, iPads, and iPhones. But, when you're the average musician, who has $125.00 an hour to record a project in a commercial studio? Oh, you mean after I record this album I have to pay you again to mix it? Oh, you mean, after I pay you to mix this album, I have to pay you another time to master it? No way!

I know, I am being a little dramatic. I know recording techniques. And, a lot of engineers will give you a really good price for their services, but there are a lot of sharks out there also. A large number of really talented people spend countless amounts of money in studios to achieve a sound that they are unable to capture themselves because they haven't taken the time to educate themselves about music as a whole. It's very important to know how to write a lyric, take that lyric and record it with notes... be able to mix those notes and not just mix... But... master and create a good song file. You will save so much money. It's funny… I know all of these things because I was forced to learn without money.

If I were rich, I think that my position would be the same. I am very frugal. Spending a jillion dollars on one project is just stupid. I refuse to go into a studio and pop a $50,000.00 check. That may be my downfall, although I'm very satisfied with where I am sonically.
Just venting about the way I feel commercial studios rob people. Not all of them, just alot of them. Peace to Jerusalem
