    If you indeed have that kind of budget, you need to hire a contractor experienced with builing an outfitting studios, and work with them.

    Doing anything else is unbelieveably stupid.

    100K is a lot of greenbacks!

    Damn gimme 20K of that to dump into my studio and I will use the remaining 80K to party with some girls in it.

    P.S. with today's technology, you dont need 100K studios to get pro results anymore.

    you should have enough left over to install a nice pole for the ladies to swing on .

    GC Pro is the only nation wide consultant (in the US) that i know of . you can low ball them big time too .

    the budget has just been revised to $50,000 and the studio has already been built. The label got a private investor to invest $500,000. We just need suggestions on production gear and the best of the must haves.

    5ok Is still a lot for a studio, you can get pro results with only 20k of gear. If you buy the right things.

    Having a whole bunch of "top-of-the-line" stuff isnt gonna make your recordings sound better.

    You still have to know how to use them.

    This is the craziest thread I think I have ever seen on here. Who is the engineer? If he can't sit down and in 5 minutes figure out how to spend your money then I would be VERY suspicious.

    You want a list:
    Get a Sony Oxford and every plugin they make for the mixer
    A bunch of highend Avalon preamps
    A few pieces of Manley gear.
    Protools recording system or a Radar system.

    Some Universal Audio compressors would work in a pinch.

    2 Neuman mics
    A Beyer ribbon
    A bunch of low end mics, hell just start picking the ones that look cool.

    That should just about wipe out your 50-100K

    Of course you could twist this list every way from Sunday, depending on what the Engineer likes.
