Finding The Right Recording Studio In York: What To Look Out ForWhen it comes to recording studios, there are a lot of choices out there, again, not just in York but with the other nearby cities in Pennsylvania 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. Make sure they have good equipment and technology.
Some recording studios may be using older, outdated equipment that can result in lower quality recordings.
A quick tip is to look at the recording studio's website - they usually have an "equipment list" detailing the technology they use.
You can also call ahead of your booking and confirm if they have any specific equipment you may need for your recording.
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 busy area which can lead to outside noise interfering with your recording session.
Others may have a more comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, allowing for a more creative environment.
If this is a concern for you, and you know you will be investing a lot of money with them (especially if you plan on booking a block of 10+ hours), it wouldn't be a bad idea to pay them a visit beforehand to see for yourself.
4. Make sure they have a good reputation.
This is where word of mouth (and reviews) comes in handy - ask around in your local music scene if anyone has had any experiences with the recording studios you are considering.
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 to keep looking.
