IT'S ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU WORK WITH, NOT THE TOOLS THEY BOUGHT!
If you are shopping for a recording studio, what you should pay more attention to than ANYTHING about the studio or the gear is the person(s) that will be working with you in it! That is the Engineer / Producer / Mixer, etc. A studio is only a set of tools. Who is using those tools is THE most important thing! That fundamental here work everywhere in life, too. IT'S ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU WORK WITH, NOT THE TOOLS THEY BOUGHT! I hear many stories of bad recordings, lame productions and miserable experiences that artists are left with after they record their music. Unfortunately, they have mostly themselves to blame. All too often they got someone or some situation that would "produce" or record them for cheap or even free. You get what you pay for. The artist did NOT do their homework on this PERSON they set out to work with. Stop with all the "I got a pro studio" already! A studio is just a tool. Granted, good tools are good to have, but tools they are nonetheless. Who (producer / engineer) is wielding this tool (studio) to help you create your vision should be your main concern.
