Hey guys, I've been working freelance for a while now and have put out some respectable sounding releases purely on my own. I used to have a dedicated home studio space before I moved and now I'm stuck up in an apartment until I get a new housing situation worked out, and once that happens, it'll still be a while before that space is prepped for session work. Since moving I've worked with friends and my own bands/projects, who don't mind sometimes being my lab rats and tracking in odd locations or their basement if I bring enough trapping / panels. But obviously, this is a terrible solution for a number of reasons, difficulty and length of setting up, potential for error, quality of recordings (especially drums - I work differently than a lot of guys here and almost always do live drums) and it would look appalling to any band who doesn't know me. So, I'm trying to start building my recording career forward and getting new clients again and I wanted to know how my fellow freelance guys went about renting rooms for tracking. Do I just email a bunch of local studios and see who'll cut me a decent rate on renting just a room or two out (as I wouldn't need much beyond maybeee their desk if I was familiar with it and monitors) for a couple of days here and there? That doesn't seem like the best way to go about it but I can't really think of any other way so I figured who better to ask than the knowledgeable folks here? Maybe it's just me, but it feels like an awkward next step that I'm not entirely sure how to take and I'm hoping you guys can help me through it. Also, on one last final and irrelevant note, I'd like to express my gratitude to this forum. My account may be new, but I've been lurking and learning here for years and using it to supplement what I learned at school, internships, or my own sessions. This site is an amazing tool and I feel like that needs to be said. So yeah, you guys are awesome. So much thanks!
