How do you perceive value?

Lately we’ve been having a lot of conversations here, about how potential clients perceive value. There are a lot of studios to choose from in Colorado, and more seem to spring up everyday. The big studios can brag about having more space and bigger names to drop, but how does that equate to your project? How do you you equate value when choosing a recording studio?

Do you think small studios offering the same gear as the big boys, equates to lower quality?

You can pay $30 an hour for a usb interface plugged into a laptop, but that’s not a studio.

HyperThreat Sound was built in my home, however we are a full HD II facility with 32 inputs killer pre-amps, and quality engineers. This is a conversation my partners and I have been having for a while now. I have been told that lower prices may be a deterrent for those who equate quality, with higher costs. Well I’m here to tell you that quality isn’t about gear, or the size of the room. Other studios may have higher ceilings, more space and drop a lot of names, but a studio is only as good as it’s engineer, not it’s clientele. Most big names bring in their own staff of engineers and producers any way. So you got to ask yourself, how much personal service does your money buy, if your name doesn’t buy any bragging rights? Please share your thoughts. Lets have a conversation. :)

We’ve recently updated the HyperThreat Sound Cloud with Jesse Alvarado’s latest mixes, and we will get Jesse’s page up on the site shortly. We are still looking for experienced protools engineers, who can hit the ground running, so any one with fast hands, great ears and a minimum of four years as a lead engineer, will find themselves at the top of my list. Send your resumes and links to your mixes/reels to info@hyperthreat.com

Cheers,

Anne
