Keeping an open line of communication and as Dave pointed out teaching bands about the reality of the situation is paramount to keeping good things happening.

We have studio drums, amps and other stuff because sometimes folks can benefit from them. Other times it's not right to get players out of their safety zone because either way they are gonna blame you. Keeping an open and respectful dialogue is the only way to combat this by educating the bands on how to get what they want.

We've all had drummers come in, insist on using a piccolo and wanting a marching snare at mix time. If you keep the communication lines open and keep them on the hook this will happen less.

Whether it's one, two or twenty rooms communication is still the crux of the bisquit.

I love the one room concept.  Been doing it for 16 of the 18 years my studio has been working.  I have one isolation booth for guitar or vocals and it works great.  I use reamping, pods, pedals, whatever it takes to get the job done.  I like a little bleed on the recordings I make, and I love being in the room with the clients.  For me it's more fun.  I've isolated my computers and drives and greased my chairs.
