Having been around many of those who have sucessful careers in the recording industry, I want to tell you the kind of luck you need to be successful in the recording industry.
Russ has transformed his life in less than a year, he thinks applying the same thinking could transform his studio too.
We’ve done a number of articles about building a successful studio business over the years, but I think, like many other sites, the list has replaced the really important message. So this list has one thing on it and it’s the thing most people don’t tell you about running a studio or creative business.

As a bit of fun on the Production Expert team over the holiday break, we’ve challenged one another to this; you get to keep all the plug-ins supplied with your DAW but then you only get to keep one more plug-in. Find out which plug-in each team member chose and why they chose it.
