    Hello guys. i am new here. :D
    well i am in a band. and after long days of thinking i decided to make a rehearsal\recording room in my house. mostly for rehearsal and too record some demos and maybe a couple of songs nothing special.

    the problem is i am completely new to this stuff and i don't know from where too start. what basic equipment i need. please consider that im low on funds. so i need only the basic stuff. but i really want to make some thing serious. and any piece of advice would be welcome.

    sorry... after reading a bit in the forum i understand that you need a specific question than this. first i want too make the room more quiet (i mean so i wont disturb my neighbors) because if i will lack the funds for recording gear at least we could put the instruments and rehears

    You should check out WhisperRoom Inc. www.whisperroom.com
    They have prefab recording rooms. They are not cheap, but you get what you pay for. It would save you a lot of time and energy trying to build out your space. I have a 4X6 and love it. They have really big sizes too.

    Daniel, disturb your neighbors? And what proximity are you to your neighbors? Are you in a single-family home? An apartment? Townhouse? At what times of the day & night and how long will you rehearse? What days? What nights?

    If you're a death metal band, you need a bunker 100 feet underground so as not to disturb your neighbors. Think Hitler hiding place.

    So you need $50,000 to make structural improvements, at your parents have.

    And $1000 of beginner recording equipment.

    How much money you got??

    What I think may be confusing you is the fact that the English language, American English in particular, is filled with words that can have several meanings.

    Yes, for "us" too, the word Acoustic can refer to a "box guitar". However, that is not what this particular forum is dedicated to. Here, in this particular corner of Recording.Org, the topic refers to spaces that are generally dedicated to music recording.

    Gonna' give you a few links to get you started on the subject of acoustics.


    I'm sure you'll have plenty of questions after visiting these sites. I'm also sure that any questions you have will be gladly answered. Just be sure to create a new topic so more folks here will see it.
