Comments

Been building my studio for commercial use (seriously) for about 9 years now. Although I've been collecting equipment, knowledge and working on my playing and technical chops for over 30 years. Music is a business, treat it like a business and you can make a living - don't and you'll spend a lot of money with little other than equipment to show for it. Don't be full of yourself and ask for help when you need it.
