My workspace up until now has been putting my laptop on my dresser drawer, an SM57 w/ boom arm, and a MCA SP1 condenser mic balanced within one of the dressers.
My aim is to set something up something cheap and basic, yet that can provide professional results.
I only really need to record voice, acoustic guitar, and plugged guitars (bass, electric guitar).
Apologies for posting here at recording.org. I'm a filmmaker and I figured you all would be able to answer my question better than anyone else.
Thinking about a video studio with two sets, one at each end of an isolated room.
Anything obviously terrible about this layout? Would the deflected walls / ceiling design be sufficient to deal with resonance?
I'm installing a wood stove in a recording room and I'm concerned about sound coming in from the chimney. Any suggestions for dealing with this?
There is a consistent noise source nearby which, so far, I have dealt with relatively successfully with window/door plugs. The stove would open a 6" channel from the room, through the ceiling/attic, and through the roof.
We are building a new studio in an existing building....a 2 storey garage....studio will be in first level....13 ft 6 in ceilings....1000 sq. ft :
