BEATENTRACK STUDIOS will be Austin's First Mobile Recording Studio, providing both mobile and affordable in-studio recording.

OUR STORY

BEATENTRACK STUDIOS was birthed out of the idea that music is GOOD. It’s a gift to be well received and given openly. It’s part of the ‘glue’ that holds communities together; the lament of the downtrodden, the celebration of the joyful. 

We were recently given an RV and asked to use it to bless the community.   In daily conversation with local hip-hop groups, singer-songwriter friends, and a few well-established iconic Austin bands, we decided the best way to do that would be by making recording more accessible to those who can’t afford it.  Thus, the idea of a mobile recording studio came about!  Austin is home to hundreds of food trailers, which have broken down the stigma of trailer-based business.  “Why not use our RV to start a new kind of business?” we wondered.  And so it began…

OUR OPERATION

BEATENTRACK STUDIOS is the quintessential social enterprise.  It’ll be Austin’s first mobile recording studio, and it will make recording possible for many artists in Austin who can't currently afford it. 

Our services will be divided into the following two categories: 

1) How we’ll bridge a gap in our community: We will provide in-studio recording to the many talented artists in Austin who could not otherwise afford to record in a professional local studio.  We will charge artists half the average market cost for hourly recording.  This will create a positive, healthy, accessible space for up-and-coming artists to deliver a tangible product to fans.  In short, this will allow those who could not otherwise afford to record an album access to professional recording.

2) How we’ll sustain the business: We will provide mobile recording services to musical artists throughout Central Texas.  We will park the studio next to clubs, venues, and festivals to record, mix, and master live sets. 

We’re doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money needed to launch the ENTIRE project.  Unlike many Kickstarter projects that seek to fund just one album, your funding will help hundreds of local artists record albums at half of local market price.  It will also help launch an unparalleled effort to preserve the Live Music Capital of the World’s live sets. 

Here’s exactly how we will spend the $25,000:

Used 5th Wheel Truck ($7,000)

RV A/C, Generator, Power Supply ($3,000)

Musical Gear ($15,000)

TOTAL KICKSTARTER GOAL $25,000    

THANK YOU for your support and cheers to good music, creativity, and the dream of a neighborhood!
