Hey fellas, I'm in the market for a small house and want to build my best solo studio yet. I live in Germany where the houses are made of thick cinderblock and most of the rooms are small and squarish around 4 meters X 5 meters and have an average height between 2.25 and 2.4 meters. I've been trying to find something a little larger for special projects and infrequent but welcome jam sessions, but european houses are known for small rooms. I'm a solo recording musician, so everything will have to be done in this one room, recording, mixing, mastering. I'm looking for some tips as i look at houses that may guide me into making a better choice. For example, do cellars make better studio rooms than ground floor? Do top floors with sloping ceilings make bad rooms? Are high ceilings bad for acoustics? Is there anything that would be especially bad for a new studio that I should be on the look out for (other than the obvious stuff like loud neighbors, living on a busy street or near train tracks and airports). I'm looking for little stand alone houses with a little distance from the neigbors so my biggest worries will be in setting up the room for great acoustics.
