If you’re a producer or recording artist, you know that inspiration can pop up almost anywhere, on a train, a birthday party, a hike, in a box, with a fox… you get the idea. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been out and about during my day with a sudden urge to record a quick melody I’ve been working on in my head.
With the Studio Stick, recording musicians are able to record high quality audio anywhere for a much lower cost than a traditional recording studio.
“Professional studios can cost upwards of hundreds of dollars per hour making access for independent artists extremely cost prohibitive” says Brandyn Armstrong, creator of Studio Stick. “Artists also want to be able to capture their creative ideas that instant moment they’re inspired but they’re currently limited because nothing previously gave them that option. That’s why I created the Studio Stick, to make recording efficient for artists throughout the world.”
The Studio Stick looks to democratize the studio recording by providing artists with access to a professional recording studio at a fraction of the cost. The device itself is a small 20-inch container taht opens and expands to an adjustable height. Once the device is opened and expanded, the device reveals a microphone, pop filter, microphone stand, reflective filter, and phone holder.
Combined with the Studio Stick mobile application, users can record high quality audio anywhere. With the Studio Stick mobile application, artists can record, mix, and master their songs, as if they were in a traditional recording studio. The built-in messaging feature eases collaboration. Once a song is completed, users can distribute their tracks to major online retailers such as Google Play, Apple Music, and Spotify.
“The Studio Stick allows artists—musicians, podcasters, lecturers, etc. —to record their songs/ideas at the moment they’re inspired while giving them a full mobile recording studio experience,” says founder and CEO Brandyn Armstrong. “With one small upfront cost, the artist can then record high quality audio whenever they want, and wherever they want. The Studio Stick is the ideal solution to solving the problems of expensive studio costs.”
