Where's That Meowing Coming From?

As some of you know, I've been keeping an eye on the closing (and burning) of famous studios. This morning, there is an article in the New York Times about the emergence of home studios. The article is about a year too late, but it is still worth a read. Recording at home is wonderful, but it won't replace recording at a studio. I think it's much better for rock records to be done in a studio with a band than just a guy, a Mac, a cat, and whatever toys he happens to have lying around (that would be me). The main thing about recording at home is that it is liberating to be able to make music without a meter running. However, it's not such a bad thing to know you have to get something done quickly. It's also a good thing to have someone around to tell you that the chorus shouldn't be done in French. Anyway, what will probably happen is that people will get bored doing the home stuff and go back to the studio, which will probably inspire them creatively just as home recording it inspiring now.
