Quality assurance. You want a good set of monitors so that you hear every detail in the sound that is being recorded, mixed, or mastered. For the average person out there they probably can't hear the fine aspects of the music that's being recorded. A trained professional can listen to something and point out flaws.

A good pair of studio monitors is essential for mixing a record. You need to hear every detail of every sound. Some people with home studios use headphones to mix. This is a problem because almost all consumer grade headphones have distorted sounds, especially in the bass (i.e. bass boost). These will give you a sense of more bass being there, so they turn the bass down. This means when you put it on a regular speaker, the bass will be too low.

Can anyone go to a recording studio and get a beat to a song?

Anyone who wants to record can book studio time. Getting a beat doesn't have anything to do with a recording studio. The recording studio records the music. For beats you would need to contact a producer. Some studios do have people on staff that also make beats, but most don't offer this service. You would need to contact each studio to find out what they offer.

Uses For Recording Studios?

Recording studios are used to record sounds -- this can include music, vocal work, or anything else that needs to exist as a sound clip. Many times, recording studios have a lot of very expensive and important equipment. This is because they need to be set up to do all sorts of different recordings as soon as a person has need of them. Bands, individuals, or companies will rent the studios out and will then work in them. Sometimes they bring their own technicians; sometimes the studio provides a technician. The following are a few examples of ways in which recording studios can be used. The most common way that they are used is to record music. Bands will rent them out and record whole albums. There will often be many different bands in the multiple studios throughout the complex, all working on separate musical recordings. For this reason, the studios have different types of microphones for everything. They may need to record the lead singer first into a vocal microphone Then they could do the drums, which require multiple microphones in a set that are all linked together. Then they might record the guitars, which could require no microphones at all -- instead, cords could plug directly into the guitars. Slightly less common is their use in recording the vocal tracks for movies and films. While it is true that a live action movie will rarely need this -- the dialogue will mostly have been recorded during the filming process -- animated movies need them all of the time. The actors have to come in and sit down with their scripts. They then have to record all of their parts while looking at the movie as it plays on a screen. Sometimes, they will record the vocal tracks first and then the rest of the movie will be designed to fit. Finally, recording studios are used for the making of commercials. These often have a lot of voice-over work since they are quick and present information on the screen in place of actors. These tracks can be recorded in a studio and then mixed in with the rest of the commercial in the post-production process.
