hi everyone i recently opened a small home studio oriented to demo recording. and have recevied positive feedback from my work but, things in the buisness area arent happening, lots of people says they are interested and would come the next week to start recording but then they dissaper. and im not sure about what m i doing wrong in the process. in my equipment i count with a layla 3g 8 channel pci card focusrite octa pre LE preamp several sm57s a beta 52 several audix a couple of studio proejcts c4 a shure sm7b but no mixer i didn`t find the necesity of buying one y record the drums on 8 tracks trough the preamp and then the layla but im starting to think if people get scared by the absence of a mixer so im thinking in the posibility of buying one just for the fact of making people more atractted to it. but i find it kind of dumb of buying somehting that wont improve your sound. so i would like to know if yhou have any reasons to recomend me of why buying a mixer or any tip related to my "problem"
