After living in Los Angeles for 11 years from 1977 to 1988 (where the music studios are plentiful, both high dollar & low budget) I got used to the fact that all artists could get their ideas & inspirations recorded with relative ease, whether they had $100.00 or $100,000.00. There were so many studios out there, no matter where you lived, getting into a studio was never a problem, plus it also meant work for me.
I spent most of my time in many of them, working on both sides of the console (as a Studio Musician & 2nd Engineer). The whole time learning about the process, from writing, to recording to mixing & mastering that went on for nine years.Then I got a Gig with a Touring Band Based out of Los Angeles, and after two years that was over and I ended up back in Wilmington De., ...Home Sweet Home !!!
"I wanted to get back into Recording"
But the difference between LA and here was amazing! Here there were only a couple low budget rooms, and only a couple high budget 2 inch rooms in Philadelphia that were very expensive, and no work. This seemed very limiting to me and I saw a need for more Studios in the area but knew I couldn’t afford a 2 inch twenty four track or even a 1 inch sixteen track machine for my room.
And then a wonderful thing happened! The invention of the MDM (modular digital multi-track), you know them as the Tascam DA-88 or Alesis ADAT. This meant that 16 bit quality Recording & video transport reliability were suddenly affordable, I bought my first ADAT and Tune Room Studios was born.
Much has changed over the years (and it's still changing)… now there are many more Studios in the area and countless Recordings being made in the Bedrooms and Basements all over the world. The difference is the gear.
