Why Recording Studios Still Matter

Saturday, March 19
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 15
531 E 4th St


Have several large studio owners and/or studio managers discuss the importance of using a real studio to make a record instead of it being recorded in a bedroom. The industry has shifted to smaller budgets leaving artists the task of finding somewhere to record for little or no money. Most studios will work with artists to do records for small budgets these days and most of the time the record can be done more efficiently and sound better by using a professional studio to record the record. Using the studio space to setup the band all "live" and not recording each instrument separately saves time and money as well as access to gear not affordable to independent artists.
