GUEST,VRDPKR CDRs for commercial recordings (42) RE: CDRs for commercial recordings 13 Jan 04


In the past 12 years, I've recorded in 3 studios and checked out 5 or 6 others. Always had to set up an appointment, drive some distance, and watch the clock ticking my budget away. Had to mix when studio time was available, had to order in batches of 500 to 1000. Last year I bought a Mac G4, Cubase studio and a couple of mid level mics. Now I record at home when I want. If allergies are bothering me, I wait a week. I mix, make a CD R and drive around in the car for a week to see how it is. If I don't like it, I redo it. I work for an hour or two in the morning. Then I go for a walk. I try to do this every day I'm at home. On a good week I'll sell maybe 10 CD's. How long will it take me to sell 500-1000? Now I make them at home. If I have a big concert coming up I'll make 100. Just bought an Epson 900 that will print directly onto the CD. Love it.. Now I've finished one album, working on the next. I like everything I've done at home better than anything I've done in the studio. As far as quality on CD R's, my old duplicator used to do them in house. Then he started shipping them to LA. The last order I placed was shipped to me from Singapore and I had 8 or 9 people contact me because their CD wouldn't play. I worry about how many people had a problem and I didn't hear from them. Now I do them at home and so far, so good.
