Recently, I’ve been sending out cold-contact emails to recording studios around North America trying to stir up some extra business. I’ve got several different form emails set up for the various different types of studios I’m contacting, but they all basically cover the same information; I’m a skilled Pro Tools Editor who is available for hire and can work remotely from my home in Austin Texas.
I’ve received quite a few email replies from studio owners, studio managers, and producers; everything from “Thanks, but no.” to “We’d love to talk more”. I’ve also received just a few priceless emails from digital audio / computer haters. Here’s my current favorite. The spelling, sentence structure, and text spacing are his - the bold type is mine (to emphasize the delicious irony).
Thanks for your email.I am sorry to say that I have no absolute interest in Pro Tools Period.LOL.I am “Old School’ been full time in the biz for almost 50 years.Can’t stand the sound of computers and all of the stuff that goes with it.Back in 1998 I switched from multi-track analog to the Hi-8 digital recording system (tape) and just love the full fat warm sound I get.Wish I was different but I am not.I think if I was a musician I would fully embrace computers and Pro Tools.Again thanks for your email and the very best to you.
