What a bummer!! Overall costs of remodeling the house have gone up because of “arquitectural surprises”…you know what this means? No studio!! Well kind of. Basically I won’t have the funds to make a studio from scratch as I had written about in Step 1. Instead I have to adapt and figure out what little space I can use to make music.
Even though I'm trying to limit myself to not write so much about gear and acoustics, I find it important to share with you that I am in the process of building my home studio...another one. I would like to share with you the process of communicating with the acoustic professionals and the architect I've hired. I will share with you my thought process of decision-making on how I want this studio to feel not just for myself, but for the clients. Even though I'll cover technical aspects and we'll geek-out a little on gear, I'll keep it to a minimum. It'll be more how these tools will help me serve my clients better and not so much how Gear XYZ will give me less distortion and noise-floor, etc.
One big question I have for myself and for other music professionals is “How do you ensure you can get a client to keep coming back?”
Most likely you’ve experienced this. You work with a client for the first time—artist, production company, label, etc.—and all went well, but for some reason after 6 months, 1 year, or more…they’re not calling back. Why?
