Suggestions on how to open a relatively cheap but profitable recording studio?

I am soon to be a Recording Arts graduate of Full Sail University, I want to open a small recording studio, and charge an hourly rate (royalty free) for the use of the studio, and my engineering. I would greatly appreciate suggestions on relatively cheap essential outboard gear (mic pre's, channel strips, compressors, etc, etc...), I guess I mean the high end of the low end, or any nonstandard cheap equipment or even techniques that have worked for you guys, something that would be a secret weapon of sorts (not ninja stars). This insight would be greatly appreciated.

the first issue is finding an appropriate location to work. a small space has too much echo, like singing in the shower. close in neighbors may not tolorate loud sound. an industrial area may have trucks, airplanes and other background noises. nearby parking sufficient for a decent size performing group.

your most likely product will be a CD, so using a computer as recorder, burner and editor makes good sense. the most cost effective audio interface to a computer is a USB console, something on the order of an Alesis Multimix 12. Much of the side channel and other processing can be handled with a software editor. mic stands and similar gear is best obtained used, check out music stores, groups are usually selling stuff.

before laying out any serious cash and signing multi-year leases, get some commitments from local performers to actually use services.
