Wisseloord studio in big problems

As long as downloading music will continue to be free for most people things can only be getting worse and only a fool will invest big amounts into music production. Artists are going to have to "pay to be heard" more or less. Why would labels invest big amounts into something people download for free? Quality of the music does not make the fans more honest.

Waxx, could you maybe add something (like "not anymore") to the topic title?
People (save the "insiders") who scroll over the high end page, but do not open this thread, will get a wrong impression and a whole new rumor might develop.

I am amazed at some of the comments about management of this place, as if better management would have somehow found money or clients that the current couldn't.

At least in the US in 2008 we saw a 40 percent drop in revenue as soon as the press chimed in with its "the economy is in the dumpster" mantra. When that happens you have to batten down the hatches . Rent or mortgage forst, utilities second. people third. Taxes, well...when you get it you pay it.

If you lose the building...well...if you can't turn on the gear....well...and if you have no one to do the work.....well.... AT least for a while you can put off the taxes, although st some point you will have no choice.

A place like Wisseloord has huge overhead, and a highly diminished pool of potential clients to support that overhead. I would venture to guess that any commercial studio relying on day rates or hourly's is going to experiencing the same thing to some extent.

Regardless how we see the current situation for the recording industry I think it would be fair to change the title of this thread as it apparently does not contribute to the success of the current Wisseloord studio and is misleading.

I personally disagree in many ways about large studios but non the less wish Wisseloord all the best for the future !
