FOR THE RECORDING STUDIO OWNER:
It is no news to recording
studio owners that the recording studio business has changed dramatically
in recent times. Lower cost technology and shrinking recording budgets
have made it difficult to keep rates at a profitable level. Consequently,
studio owners must be very careful in weighing their investment
in equipment and facilities against potential income.
Clients still demand the proper
acoustical space and working environments. However, the investment
in leasehold improvements to create these environments may be prohibitive.
It may now make more sense to look at modular removable studio systems
that can be treated as a depreciable equipment purchase.

FOR THE MUSICIAN AND PRODUCER:
With the introduction of new lower cost technologies
in the recording industry came the possibility for musicians and
producers do work outside the traditional studio environments. Home
studios or alternate facilities have become an integral part of
the production process and offer a more relaxed, pressure off environment
tailored to the particular owners creative needs.
The problem of acoustic translation and accurate
aural perception has become an issue for the professional that works
in these home studios and alternate facilities. Hours of great work
can be wasted trying to create sounds that are being inadvertently
corrupted by a less than perfect acoustical environment. Only when
the work is heard outside these studios do these perception problems
become evident causing the user to second guess his or her reactions
and judgments when returning to work in these home studios.
