“When a Professional Studio is Needed”
The theme is the role of professional studios in the overall recording process.
We have seen an explosion of smaller project studios and much work can be accomplished in these studios. However, there comes a time when recording at a professional studio may become necessary. Featured in this summit are studio operators combined with artists, producers and engineers to discuss the role of professional studios and how they are selected and used.
