Dub: The mixing desk as an instrument and the DJ/remixer as an artist. -- John McCready
"I see the studio must be like a living thing, a life itself. The machine must be live and intelligent. Then I put my mind into the machine and the machine perform reality. Invisible thought waves - you put them into the machine by sending them through the controls and the knobs or you jack it into the jack panel. The jack panel is the brain itself, so you got to patch up the brain and make the brain a living man, that the brain can take what you sending into it and live." --Lee Perry
"...ever since Miles Davis and James Brown transferred their primary creative space from stage to studio, the most succesful musical form in the popular arena has been the dance-groove : where cycles of rhythm, circling ever back to their beginnings, allow for small shifts and changes within the structure to bring with them remarkable shock-force." (Hopey Glass in The Wire).
Definition[...] For the purpose of this site, a studio is a room, building, or group of buildings where movies, television shows, or music are produced.
Recording studioA recording studio is a facility for sound recording. Recording studios generally consist of at least two rooms: the studio itself, where the sound for the recording is created, and the control room, where the sound from the studio is recorded and manipulated.
Recording studios are carefully designed so that they have good acoustics and that there is good sound insulation between the two rooms. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recording_studio, Apr 2004
