Building a recording studio
I don't know if this belongs here or not... It's kind of a follow up to the "Gear means nothing" thread... in a way.
I'm finding that I'm really loosing a LOT of additional income by strictly being a mobile service.
I've tried doing the referral thing with several of the other studios in the area, but everyone seems to want my ears in their project. They like the way I mix, but I don't have a brick and mortar to have clients come to... so I am SERIOUSLY thinking of taking the plunge.
I found a secluded 10 acre tract with the makings of a great facility. Now to the grit of the matter...
If you had it all to do over, would you hire a consulting firm to turn-key your studio? -OR- Would you go it alone as project manager and sub-contract everything out that you couldn't handle yourself?
