i have some questions and one of my friends referred me to this site so hopefully you guys will be able to help me out.
so yea, the one i'm currently working at is alright, the setup is nice, a lil bit better than what i have, but only because of a few small reasons, I'm able to achieve the same quality at my own home studio as I am at the regular studio, and I actually have a better interface and microphone so my vocal quality is great. but he's got more inputs and a better mixing interface for bands and stuff, which I can work around for a while...the thing that's not great at the studio i'm working at is the owner...he's been a lil shady so far, i dont know...he hasnt given me any work there yet and I haven't made any money, basically all i've had a chance to do is mess around on the equipment and make a few beats and record a couple songs. and for the past week and a half, every time I try and come up there he's always sayin he's gone on a trip or not in town. I dont know if he's doing business behind my back, if he is, then i feel bad for the artists he's recorded cuz he knows nothing about mixing and mastering lol. Maybe he's just really unmotivated and that's just not going to work with me because I'm trying to get things together as soon as possible...so I've been talking to some friends and one of them has a rich uncle that might be investing about 1000 bucks to rent a building and buy whatever else i need. the building i'm getting is a nice size and 300$ rent/month. I'm going to charge 30/hr for the first 1-2 months for people to record to show them my quality and what not. I've also gotta good idea on how to handle the business and promote so that's not in my main worries right now. basically all i'm looking to do to upgrade to what i need is build a vocal booth over the summer, buy an extra pair of headphones, and upgrade to dual monitors...maybe soundproof a lil down the road as well as buy a mixing board once the money comes in.
The equiptment I already have:
PC - 3.6ghz processor with 3gbs of ram, 220gb hardrive
Emu1616m PCI soundcard
Behringer Truth Monitors (the higher end model)
KSM32 Condensor Microphone
Kurzwiel SP88 Keyboard
Samson 5kit Drum Mics
Samson Studio Reference Headphones
and just about every type of software I'd need and more (nuendo, all vsts, cubase, fl studio, adobe audition, ETC)
This will be happening all very soon too...I just need some serious advice...most importantly, what legal things do i need to take care of?? I need to get some contracts as far as selling my own beats and for the legal issues for when people record. also, does anyone have some good instructions/plans on building a vocal booth? i want this to look official and my dads gonna help me do this and he's really good at doing stuff like that lol. please help me out and lemme know wassup. THANKS ALOT.
