I was doing more work on my assignment which requires me to design a studio, make a list of all expenses, and write a mini-business plan... well apparently opening a "modest" studio costs enough money to make me want to die (a little). I could totally go way cheaper, but I guess my standards are a little too high :(
I know you'd realistically have to get a loan, but my credit sucks, so I guess opening a studio is out of the question for me lol. But for someone who has some money or the ability to get a loan, it actually doesn't cost too much to open up a decent studio. It would definitely cost twice as much as your car (unless you have a super nice car). But if you don't care about being super snazzy, you could totally open up a nice studio for less than the cost of an SSL.... and I mean an old SSL.
In summary, someone give me a winning lottery ticket. If not, I guess I can accept that there are certain things I'll never have.
Speaking of things I'll never have, here's me using the school's SSL G4000+
