  15. Hello Mr. Kelly. First I just want to thank you for this informative video. I was inspired to start my own music publishing company after I watched your video on what type of equipment is needed to create your own PC Recording Studio from your company “Raw Technique Studios” I am grateful you took the time to help teach some of the do’s and don’ts of the music business. I look forward to to learning more from your YouTube tutorials. I have started to save money to purchase my equipment and I am studying up on music publishing. Until next time cheers! With Gratitude -Reginald Mitchell
