While amateur artists usually only spend a very short period of time in the studio (get in, record, mix and get out, everything usually within less than a month), most professional artists – including many of the Masters Of The Past – spent a lot of time in the studio. This allowed them to experiment with new ideas, as well as to refine their songs, or even to write completely new material when needed.
HAVING PERMANENT ACCESS TO A RECORDING STUDIO WILL BE A GREAT ADVANTAGE.
You can instantly record your ideas, experiment, and create demos of your songs. Many years ago this was something that only very successful artists could afford, as studio time can be quite expensive.
