Alright so as most once were, I am new to recording and am trying to figure out some very beginnerish things. First off I know the sound that I will be getting out of a home studio is no where near as good as it would sound out of a professional one, more or less because of my experience, room settings and such. I want to know what extra obstacles I am working with when recording in a bedroom. 6 walled bedroom, got a tv, bed and all that kind of $*^t in it. Due to this, acoustics are most likely $*^t, but is there any way around that. Recording in the garage? Putting egg cartons (if that trick even works) on the walls. Also, for my setup I have a mic running through an interface then to WaveLab LE. Would getting a mixer be a smart idea, or what is the next best step to take in expanding my home studio? The mic I have isn't the greatest so I have been thinking maybe investing into a new mic, but if so what kind and does that even make sense with such a poor acoustic enviroment. Thanks for the help.
