Professional Studio Recording

The advantage to a professional studio is the

quality of the final recording. It’s difficult to

create a commercial quality recording without

a professional studio recording or professional

mixing and mastering.

The disadvantage is price... costs include: studio

time, a recording engineer (who records

the song), a mixing engineer (who mixes all

tracks together) and mastering engineer (who

puts finishing touches on the final mix to make

it ready for radio). In addition, it’s common to

hire professional studio musicians who play

and sing the parts on the recording.
