Why don't you approach a friend or relative and ask to borrow the money until you all get paid?

Dude honestly if thats relatively good recording quality then you should be jumping the fuck up and down. Around here, good recording costs $100+ a song, and if you're doing it by the hour, it can cost upwards of thousands of dollars.

Seriously, borrow it, or if you have any money in bank accounts? Idk, everyone in my band has jobs

I was thinking that it's really cheap for a recording. You'll probably want a buffer too because recording usually runs over what you allow for it..

Record at home. It's cheaper and you'll get to know music production.

Cheaper?

The cost of the mics alone (even cheap all purpose ones) would be as much as if not more than his budget.

A low cost audio interface would be around £100

And unless you've taken a course in music tech, whatever tiny amounts about music production you learn would be out wieghed by the terrible recordings.

How many people in your band?

Split it that many ways...be easy to raise say £40 each than £120 in one go

Just borrow and pay it back if you get paid after recording date, OR reschedule it.

I wouldn't even bother with the recording. £128? It's going to be sh*t quality.

Save up around £500 and then go and record in a half decent studio. It'll be worth it, nobody wants to listen to a **** quality demo.

If you need a few quick quid short term, try doing "chores" or helping people out with little jobs here and there.

No they'd rather listen to over-produced twaddle.

I suppose but if they saved and got a good quality studio. It would be far cheaper in the long run.

Hey guys,

Another member of the same band here:

- Yes, recording at home would be shocking. We could theoretically get the guitars and vocals down with the gear I have, but recording the drums would be a bitch.
- About the cheapness of the whole thing. We have already taken away from the cost the money we have, plus the studio provides a 35% discount for the unwaged. We have the full discount as we are all students.
- We are hopefully going in for 20 hours. Split into two days. One day will be for recording, the second for mixing. Having cut a disc with a previous band, we managed 6 songs in this time, of a good quality. We are going for less songs this time, but with a higher quality.
- Also, about knowledge of music technology, myself and Racy are actually both music technology students with prospects for a degree course in music production. We know our stuff fairly well. All that we don't know is where we're going to get this cash from.

And also, the reason we have to record now is that we're doing it with a company who are going to put this out for us. In addition to that, we've booked the launch party gig .

I'm assuming none of you work? Because you could get that money in like one week if you each chipped in 1/8 of your pay. And still have money left over to go to the cinema...have some frozen yogurt...or whatever the hell teens do nowadays.

Try and play some decent gigs, maybe parties as they tend to pay fees. Our band needed £200 to record half our album, and we've managed to collect the £400 we needed for the whole album through gigging.

EDIT: also, how many members are in your band? Remember that dividing the fee between the members substantially reduces the amount you'd need to raise - when we recorded our first EP, we all provided £30 each and that amounted to the £150 fee required.

A job each would easily cover the amount you'd need, even if you're a three piece.
