Your Recording Studio Can Make Money

Think back 20-30 years ago. Some of us weren't even alive then. Maybe that's why today's recording industry seems so normal. But trust me - this isn't the way it's always been. Things are changing for recording studios and for the music business. I'm not talking about Napster and the file-sharing crisis of a few years back. Actually I'm referring to home recording studios, which are having a huge impact on the big time studios in your town.

In the 1970s, what did a band do if they wanted to record an album? Or even just a demo? It was a difficult process, and unless you wanted to settle for absolute junk - you had to go to the big recording studios. They monopolized the music industry. Bands that could get into the studios were heard. A band that had no money, no label representation, and no fan base were screwed.

But home recording studios began to spring up more and more through the 1990s. And with advances in computer technology, anybody and everybody can own a nice little studio. The price tag today? A couple hundred bucks. And the quality of your recordings will not be too shabby. With a little practice, your home studio can churn out competitive tracks. And the music business doesn't like that fact. You are armed with a studio that can compete. And more bands are starting to hop onto the home studio trend.

Here's the interesting part: a home studio owner today has a unique opportunity to cash in on the industry. Labels are hemorrhaging money, unknown bands are getting famous through MySpace, and recording at home is becoming a profitable business. It's as simple as picking up the pizza boxes and beer bottles in your studio, bring in some local bands, and closing the deal. When you show a band what your home studio has to offer, and how much money they can save by avoiding a bigger studios, you will win the sale. You could record one band a week and have some extra pocket change to buy new gear. How many bands would you need to record before you made enough money to quit your day job? That's how powerful this new movement is, and I would encourage you to look at the possibilities.

Running this business is not difficult. There are some tricks of the trade, and you need to learn the ropes. But once you fill in a few pieces of the studio business blueprint, you're golden. Recording studio businesses are easy to manage, cheap to start, and best of all - this is the coolest job in the world.
