just wondering which studios you guys think are the best value, our band is looking to record a 3-5 track demo and don't want to spend much more than $1000 inc. mastering. any suggestions would be awesome. p.s. band style is indie pop, rock n' roll if that helps! cheers</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

With that amount of cashola, rehearse till you can put the tracks down live. Then dub the vocals etc. Less time in the studio the better for a young band. The rest is Beer'n'pizza money.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

For a demo you should get out around $200-$400. Depending on how good the studio is and how practised you are.

With demos remember unless you always practise the song without a mistake. You will probably end up with some. Do not stress. Just enjoy the day if you have not recorded before..
Do not get suckered into making your demo into a EP when your not ready. Unless your really happy.
I have had a few bands release demos I did as EP with a little cleanup.

Also do not tell the studio you have a grand to spend...he he

Good luck..
One question to ask with studios if you want to record live can they do it.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I can put you onto someone - has a home studio, we recorded our 2nd EP and came up great.
Let me know your email address if you are interested.
Also, make sure you know your songs inside out before attempting it. It will save you money.
Pre production is a must.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Hi Hugh, I could record you guys for a lot less than $1000, got a well-equipped studio of my own. Email me at zacnelson@optusnet.com.au or phone 0411640228

Cheers

P.S. I also do mastering, which is one of the most important aspects of a good demo.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
