All the same. I would be inviting every local band I could find to come jam and record in the studio. Just for the experience and the fun. Seriously man. I did that so much at OU. I'd just go out on Court Street, which was our Main Street, and I'd find a band playing at an open mic night somewhere. I'd tell them they could get free studio time if they wanted.
I learned so much by doing that. And it's beyond fun to do. You make a lot of musician friends that way as well. Networking is always a good thing. ;-)
I have literally offered that studio to every musician I run by. But I live in the suburbs of chicago, and they aren't shit for bands cept a couple random death metal heads and such. And they come out with the WORST studio recordings ever. EVER, cuz they cant play on time. At least thats been my experience so far. I also happen to be involved in the recording techniques classes at the school, which has us record the jazz ensemble from the school, so thats good experience too.
I would want to use it for some kind of interesting outcome that I could be more involved with though, rather then the people I meet on the street or at school. Maybe this is a sign I should go to the city more often =/
