Gear Nut
 

Our posts are useless, this guy will keep finding excuses anyways instead of honing his skills. Have you read my post above? You don't need 10K$ gear to win!

You can absolutely do everything by yourself, including the mix. Mastering is only responsible for 10% of a song success. If it's good, any decent indie label or publisher will be happy to cover the costs. Regarding the "high end mic needed for world-class vocal" this is bullsh*t as well. If the singer is good and has practiced the performance before entering studio, he/she can definitely record a good-quality take in one or two hours for 50/100$ max. Then, your mixing skills will make it shine.

Last but not least, since you seem so obsessed by the value of your gear, please consider this perspective: 10.000$ is a lot of money indeed. However, given that a true mastery of the craft is usually achieved after 10.000 hours of practice, spread over 7 to 10 years, it would require an investment of 1000/1300$ per year to finally acquire this "perfect" studio. Some people go to holidays with this cash, other prefer to buy 3 packs of cigarettes per week, you could also buy a dog and cover his veterinary expenses, and so on. You could also slowly build your studio.

Stop blaming, start acting.
