I know its sort of an unorthadox approach but......I run a small indie label with one successful release under our belt. This band has since gone on to sign with Victory Records (one of the largest indie labels around). I am exploring the idea of rather than using large commercial studios with inflated rates........using home studios to record our releases. I know that this would have to be done with a very competant engineer in order to come out with a good commercialized sound, and know its very possible. The unorthadox part im really looking into is whether any home studio owners would give studio time for our artists and rather than take fees upfront, instead take 20 points on the sales of albums, and all profits from the masters. We do have distribution, digital and physical, we would do music videos for all the artists, and albums would be serviced to hundreds of college stations. Basically im trying to save as much on the front end so that more money and attention can be placed into promotion......which in my experiences results in faster profits assuming the music is good. I guess the question is.......are there any studio owners out there that would find this kind of partnership feasable.
