..But Not Having Any Money To Make Them Better Appreciation Thread.
Anyone else? :D
It's been a long and emotional day.
'sock it to them' sort of deal? Like, a sort of "you think this sounds bad, wait till you hear it through a toilet!" sort of scenario?
My advice (though it's nearly impossible to follow without a lucky break) is to try and find a good aspiring producer without too many credits who owns his/her own recording equipment and convince them to record you for free/at a cut price rate.
It's genuinely amazing how good a live-sounding 'full band' sound the right person can get in a rehearsal studio or somewhere with just a laptop, some good software and some decent microphones (all of which many producers would own anyway).
If it's a genuine enthusiast who likes the music and has a flair for producing you get a much better sound than you would hiring a studio without someone who doesn't really 'get' what you do (not that that's necessarily what you've done).
I appreciate this isn't easy to do but you're in a band that seems to be well-liked and I presume has had some good reviews etc. There must be someone out there who'd be good and up for it?
Yeah, all the time. WELL SORRY, BUT THE FREE RECORDING STUDIO WASN'T AVAILABLE.
