Prymax Studios is second to none when it comes to productions. Standard or mobile units are infused with modern technology in this digital era.

For decades, recording studios were known as large soundproof buildings with specialized audio gear that were very expensive to construct and manage. The audio equipment and instruments alone were unreachable to purchase for most artists. The owner of a recording studio had to get a loan which was almost like a mortgage.

How much did it cost to build a recording studio decades ago?

The average cost to build a professional recording studio in the 90s was $200,000 – $1,000,000 depending on the size and equipment. This didn’t include renting or purchasing the building it was housed in. The overhead to operate these studios was another hurdle the owner had to deal with.

Today, we live in a different era where technology has shrunk the financial gap as well as accessibility to record music and facilitate production. Now you can build a home digital audio studio setup easily for about $5,000 to $20,000.

What is the digital age and how has it changed the recording studio experience?

In the late 90s to early 2000s, the recording  industry entered the digital age. It was still fairly expensive when digital audio was first introduced. After 20 years, the price of digital audio equipment has gone down to where almost everyone can record on their own with just a laptop, microphone, and audio interface.

The digital age has drastically changed the way recording studios operate. From the equipment they use to the way they produce music, modern recording studios are a far cry from their analog predecessors. With the advent of digital audio workstations, producers can quickly and easily manipulate sound and create complex compositions in a fraction of the time it used to take.
