    Would it be a better idea to seperate this room and create 2 small rooms or to leave it as one room. Im realizing this is probly the wrong area to post this but for recording drums, guitars in this size room would it be possible to create a good acoustic enviroment for ambient room mics, or better to just deaden the room? the ceiling are only 7 feet tall. any ideas would be appreciated. thanks.

    A lot depends on how you want to record, but I'd say if you subdivide that room, you'll get two crappy little rooms. Go with a single medium sized room and learn to work around it.

    My room is 16' X 23' X 11 and single.

    Oh no, don't split it!!! Todzilla has it right, you'll end up with two small crappy rooms. Treat your walls with the proper absorption and even with the low ceiling you'll get a good sound out of it. Just don't overdo it or the room will end up dead and lifeless.

    Why do are you thinking that you want two rooms anyways?
