The Worst Recording Studio Available

Clickbait? Maybe haha. Just hear what I have to say though huh?

My studio doesn't look like much but I can get some very good sounding recordings in there. I've had experience in and out of studios for almost 12 years. I have a good ear for making something sound the way someone wants. Know how to use EQ's and Compression wisely. Was also a sound engineer for 4 years in various venues around LA and a musician with touring experience across US and EU.

If you're looking to get quality recordings, mixing, or production out of a DIY studio with experience and care, then I can help you. But if you're looking for a $30/per hour or more dim lit decked out recording studio where the engineer might not really care about your music, then I could still help you, because I can just scroll through dozens of em on Craigslist haha. Not to say those studios are bad quality. But it depends on the engineers taste for what you're looking for and their level of interest. I've been in many bands, recording at top studios and end up with very flat sounding recordings with nothing unique to offer.

Anyway peep thru some of this info, rates, gear etc. and let me know if you're interested, I'm very easy to get along with and don't have an ego about how to get things done.
