Feast or Famine is a recording studio and label in San Francisco, California. Our studio is for bands and recording artists who wish to release full-length CDs of original music or high-quality demo CDs for booking purposes.

Our studio also provides mixing, CD mastering, sound design, and other audio production services. Additionally, we have mobile systems for recording bands in their practice spaces or for capturing live DJ sets at clubs. Studio rates are generally very low, ranging from $25 to $60 an hour, depending on the nature of the project.

We run a small record label as well for musicians and DJs interested in putting out adventurous music. In terms of genre, we're pretty much open to anything that's musically independent.

And yes, we're "that label" who carries the band Job - we love them too! Please visit their Web page for more information. Their second CD North should be coming out this year, and from what we've heard so far, it's really REALLY good.

    "It is customary to believe that the CD is superior to the LP in terms of bandwidth, but this is not the case. The CD is limited to 22,000 cycles, whereas the LP is able to reproduce frequencies up to 50,000 cycles, which in the PCM world equals a sampling rate at 100 KHz."

    "And I've met plenty of people at other studios that really make my flesh crawl. Irritating guys with ponytails who will stick their noses in the studio every half hour and make a disgusted face and then walk out. But probably the worst type of person in these places is the ass-kisser who says things like, 'Oh, yeah - I'm really, like, into what you're doing, dude.' Just slime."
