Okay, I have to admit I find it kinda funny looking back, but it really hacked me off when they first said it: "Why don't you just go buy a good computer and put ProTools on it?" In case you can't tell, I was trying to get a loan to start my own studio in this area. Sure, I'm 19 and was asking for $500,000 (most of which would've been construction), but what I had going for me was running three successful businesses and customer accolades from shows and demos I had done. Honestly, I consider $500,000 to be a small amount for starting a business from the ground up, especially a studio. I just want to know from others who have experienced this type of stuff, "What was your worst response from a bank regarding building a studio?"
