Comments

I'm smack in the middle of Ohio desperately searching for experienced home recorders who could help me improve my sound quality. It's OK, but things I'm having trouble with is total volume to tape, although I have progressed tremendously. Would like to create an EXTREMELY affordable studio for bands needing solid demos.. like i needed years ago but could never find.
