I am a pianist and a vocalist. When I built my first studio, the grand piano was inside the control room, so I could engineer and play. It took some getting used to, but it worked. I made several fine CDs in that odd place, which was carved out of my little house in the burbs. Now I live in a condo, and I've got a studio in the living room. Can't have any live drummers, but I do have the piano. Anyone else out there that does this bit?
