Finding The Right Recording Studio In West Greenwich: What To Look Out ForWhen it comes to recording studios, there are a lot of choices out there, again, not just in West Greenwich 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. Use a studio with high-quality equipment.
Some studios cut costs by using cheaper gear. If you have budgetary restrictions, this might be okay for you. But in general, it's best to book a studio that uses quality equipment and is up-to-date on the latest technology advancements.
Pro tip:: Check out the recording studio's website before booking - most of them list their technologies under an "equipment" page.
Or give them call ahead of time to ask about their tools and if they can accommodate any specific requests you may have for your recording session.
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.
Use word of mouth and reviews to get an idea of the recording studios you are considering - ask around in your local music scene if anyone has had any experiences with them.
You can also check online reviews on websites such as Google and Yelp, although take them with a grain of salt as some may be biased.
Most importantly, trust your gut - if something about the recording studio or their services seems off to you, it's probably best not.to use their services..
