Tips for Studio Management (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)
This episode is a part of our Blog-vember 2019 trifecta of three posts a day—a video, a podcast, and a blog post. This year the focus is tips for the D.I.Y. Rock Star. We developed these methods through our own decades worth of experiences.
Take into account these tips for discovering and listening to new music:
The BIG Take-Aways:
Our main management tip is to “Keep it simple.”
Depending on the purpose of your studio, you may have a different view of managing their studio. Because our studio is for songwriting, Bruce does not like audio engineering or mixing, so the less of it he has to negotiate, the better. Not fighting with equipment helps keep us in the creative flow, so to keep things simple helps us vibe longer.
However, if you are a gearhead and love collecting and fiddling with outboard gear and etc., you might really enjoy spending all day tweaking equipment. Bruce barely has any outboard gear, besides guitar pedals.
He likes to trade things out, so that when we get new gear, we sell the old pieces of gear. New equipment spurs creativity and, since each piece nowadays has so many different things that it does that we don’t feel that we even get the MOST out of each piece. However, since they often overlap with what functions they provide, so, for us, it is gluttony to keep them both.
Finally, simplicity is the key to how we manage our studio gear needs.
