Here is a room I am trying to figure out how in the hell to set it up for tracking AND mixing. It will be a decent sized attached garage with 8,9 or 10 ffot ceilings, and I havent decide which height yet, but I need to soon. The floor plan is here: http:// The problems so far? The garage door on the south side, the untility closet with furnace on the north side. Here are some specifics, since some of these might matter... I am going to put down a pergo style floor that looks like hardwood in the garage so that it looks nice, it will be fully drywalled and painted nicely (thinking a dark maroon, teal, or purple) with recessed lighting. All this will give it a comfortable, not-a-garage feel. I hope. I am not entirely opposed to framing a wall in front of the garage door inside and making pretty much a facade on the outside, but it WOULD be handy for people bringing gear in and out. The other thing to think about with the garage door: noise entry... it is a dead end street, very low traffic and I am halfway to the end and there is generally not much noise around there. I know garage doors seems to let in every little peep. I will be trying to find a nice heavy garage door that seals nicely. It will be painted the same inside as the rest of the garage and maybe masked with a wall of tall artificial plants. Looking at the drawing, the untility closet and the garage door kill my every idea of where to place things. What are your best ideas on where to place the mix station, the drum tracking area, and your proposed ideas for room treatment. I am already going to put bass traps in all four corners, and diffuse the area above the drum rug (thin, tight weave throw rug) and behind it most likely. Lots of things actually depend on where to place this stuff. If it were you, and the tracking and mix station had to be in one room, where would they be, and how would you treat it? Peace!
