I think that there are two separate issues:

1/ crowdfunding a record release

I have little isue with this provided that the artist does release the record and that any funds are properly accounted for and used as stated for the production and release of the project.


and

2/ 'buy me a professional studio'

Do the same as every professional studio and work to establish your business either to be able to buy equipment etc outright or be able to get a mortgage. Whilst he's at get the 30 odd years experience I have as a mastering engineer and the 1000s of releases that I've been involved in and pay your dues. Stop expecting a free lunch and stop insulting the experience of pro engineers and pro studios.


Like every business out there and maybe some more, if one ends up with a pro studio on his hands and has NO KNOWLEDGE on how to run it properly, it will fail miserably smile.gif I think that as Tony said, one must start from the ground up, because in that way, you learn how to manage a business. Otherwise, a truly skilled businessman will be able to raise the funds on his own and start any endeavor he/she wishes. I think it would only be fair, but there are cases in which some folks could do A LOT with some extra funds which they can't raise themselves. The situations are varied and we can't say it's just black or white smile.gif

My friends band is doing it now - they just came out with this promo video trying to raise money for their next CD. They've got some really freaking killer songs for their next CD, but it takes money.
