hey all, my boss is a berkley graduate (audio production), has been recording professionally for over 20 years, full time. i recently built i studio for him in my hometown, with the idea of tapping in to a new market. so he's running 2 studios. the one i built came out better than we expected, and much better than the first location, which was not built from the ground up, and is located in a noisy, band rehearsal facility. having grown understandably frustrated, with the conditions, he's thinking about moving out. The opportunity has come up to lease a studio that has been closed for 3 years. it's is in it's own comercial building, and was re-built 3 times, in the heyday of the late 80's early 90's. it has been in mix magazine, and was professionally designed by an acoustician. this was a no expense spared built, for a grammy winning engineer. the lease would increase current rent to about $1500 per month. it has living accommodations for 6, a faraday cage, 2 large booths, reception area, and an office. My question is in this current state of the art, what are you guy's feelings on this move.? there is no way we could afford to build a place to that extent, but to me this seems like a very good opportunity to have a high end professional recording studio, in a relatively affordable way. our hope is that we'll be able to attract higher level clients, and do more label work. there have been numerous top ten hits recorded at this studio, and the engineer/producer who recorded them is onboard to work there if this goes thru. is this a bad idea? what other options should i be considering? i'm going friday w/ my boss, to see what kind of construction repairs need to be made, and put together a budget.
