Pros and Cons of Recording in Austin

As a major hub for live music, there are plenty of advantages to finding a recording studio space in Austin. But with incredibly hot summers and notorious traffic, there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind.


  • The music scene
    Austin has a reputation as one of the United States’ most vibrant cities for live music, with festivals and shows held here throughout the year.

  • Experienced professionals
    With so much live music in Austin, the city has an abundance of sound engineers and behind-the-scenes crew with extensive experience in the industry.
  • Diverse population
    The city’s cultural diversity is only increasing, meaning you can find musicians from all walks of life and with experience in a wide range of musical genres.

  • Variety of recording spaces
    Aside from purpose-built recording studios, you can also rent contemporary homes and creative warehouse spaces in Austin to host your recording session.
  • Favorable weather
    Austin experiences around 300 sunny days each year, making it an appealing destination to visit and work in, even during the cooler months.


  • Traffic is terrible
    While the city’s public transport network is improving, Austin is predominantly a car city, and most locals self-drive to get around. This has led to significant traffic issues, particularly in the city center around the daily rush hours.
  • Property prices are high
    Compared to many other Texan cities, Austin’s property prices are relatively high, so you may end up paying more for a recording studio in Austin than you would elsewhere.
  • Summers can be scorching
    While winter temperatures are generally pleasant, Austin summers can be scorchingly hot, and finding somewhere with good air-conditioning is a “must” if you plan on hosting your recording session during these months.
  • Bugs that bite
    Austin has a reputation for an abundance of bugs and mosquitoes at certain times of the year, so be sure to bring your repellant if you plan on being outside in the evenings.
  • It’s easy to overspend on eating
    Austin has so many great places to eat, which is a plus in many ways. But it also means that you can easily spend a lot more on dining than you may have intended.
