Maybe he's just being sketchy and showing hey, this is kinda what the music is gonna sound like..but i only have guitar pro to get the ideas down, so thats why i need your money to go to a studio and make it sound legit! gimme your money!
but 20 grand is way more than he needs to cut an album.
The studio that rings of saturn recorded their first couple albums at charges 30$/hr for recording/mixing/mastering... so just to ballpark it.. lets say it takes 2 full weeks of 8 hour days to record everything (112 hours...which is way more than needed imo) that would total $3,360. And lets say it took another 112 hours to mix/master(also, way more time than necessary) ...another $3,360.....$6720 total.
Pocket over 13 grand from the funds(assuming he hits his goal).... sounds pretty good to me!
i mean, i could be totally wrong about his intentions...but hey, if he pulls in the money and does the album, good for him. Cant hate on someone for trying to make money
