Ehhh. I've got a few friends in this local punk band, and theres this guy, Chris, from the "bigtime" local punk band around here. He says his main goal is to support all of the local music and stuff, so it really gets to me how he's charging my friends to record. Well, of course, you expect to pay to cut a demo, but this guy's equipment consits of some Nady drum mics, a MXL vocal mic, a behringer mixer, some other random stuff and a computer. I guess its done in his house, possibly an apartment. He's charging $100 for it, i'm not sure how many songs, but still that just seems like busting heads to me. Maybe it's just my attitude, but if I had gear like that and recording in an apartment, I don't really think i'd be worried about making money, but thats just me. I was going to do something for them for free but the kid who's equipment I was borrowing (8 track hard disk recorder, yamaha mixer, bunch of drum mics) took it all back haha. I'm currently saving up for gear of my own to try and get things going but i'm really starting to get more interested in live sound, so i'm not sure what i'm going to empty my wallet on.
