Finding The Right Recording Studio In Rumford: What To Look Out ForWhen it comes to recording studios, there are a lot of choices out there, again, not just in Rumford but with the other nearby cities in Rhode Island in the mix, too, you are inundated. The trouble is finding the right recording studio that meets your needs. Here are some tips for choosing a good recording studio once you've narrowed them down!
1. Check that they have quality equipment and stay up-to-date with technology.
Some studios may use cheaper gear to save money. This is okay if you're trying to keep costs down, but make sure the studio still has high-quality equipment. You can tell by checking their website for an "equipment list," or calling ahead of your booking to confirm if they have what you need.
2. Look at their past work and clientele.
A lot of recording studios have a portfolio or "artist roster" on their website, showcasing musicians and bands they've worked with in the past.
Any studio would take this opportunity to drop some big industry names if they have worked with them, but even smaller local bands can give insight into the studio's sound and style.
You can also take a listen to their past work on streaming platforms such as Spotify or Soundcloud.
3. Consider the location and atmosphere of the studio.
Some recording studios may be located in a populated area which can lead to troublesome noise from outside interfering with your recordings.
However, others have a more comfortable and relaxed environment-- conducive for creativity. If this is important to you, it might not be a bad idea to visit before investing money (especially if you plan on booking 10+ hours).
4. Do your research.
When in doubt, ask around - see if any of your fellow musicians have had any experience with the recording studios you're considering. Chances are, they'll be able to tell you everything you need (and more) about their experiences.
That being said, online reviews can give you a good idea of what previous customers think of the studio and its services. However, take them with a grain of salt as some may not be entirely objective.
