building a recording studio

Make a Professional Studio

Hello guys, I would like to make a professional studio to record my drums. I already have an acoustically treated room and I wanna know what mics, preamplifiers, monitors, audio interfaces, mixer, etc. to buy?
I would like to obtain Weckl sound. What do you suggest me to buy? Thanks.
I currently have a focusrite scarlett 18i20 1st Gen, a jts 7 piece drum mic set and a soundcraft efx12.

New and building a studio, requesting advice.


I finally decided to start building a soundproof studio, but I'm not sure what I want. I'm hoping this forum is a good place to get some insight.

I'm an average, self-taught musician. I've never done any "serious" recording on my own, but a band I was in self-produced a CD. So I've had minor experience in a recording atmosphere. Mostly in my past, I've only hit the record button on a tape deck and recorded myself.

New Studio Build for Non-Profit Music Education Program

Hi All! Thanks for being here, thanks for having me and thanks for taking a look at this.

I'm working on starting a music education project here in Athens GA and I'm building out a studio for it.
(you can find more details at )

First off I need to say that isolation is not a problem here. Not that there aren't issues, but I can get around them and my neighbors are super cool. Plus the building itself is set way off the road on the end of a dead end street.

Building new homestudio

Hi all!
I recently moved to a new home and now I am about to build my studio there.
The main task will be mixing metal bands and sometimes recording some overdubs or vocals.

Me and my girlfriend live in the house so noise inside the house should not be a huge problem.
There are only 2 rooms on the upper floor which I can use.
The rooms are 4,23 meters by 4,85 meters and 3,70 meters by 4,23 meters. ceiling is about 2,60 meters.The rooms are connected with a door. both rooms have a concrete flooring with deal boards.

Building a large wood room to record drums

Ok so I understand that many professional studios use big open wooden rooms to record drums in to get a more punchy sound. I happened to come across an article that said if you go out and buy plywood to put over the walls (and floor if there's carpet) that it will help achieve something close to that sound you can achieve in the professional studio.

I have several questions about using this method,

help building a new high end studio please :)

hey guys, I'm about to start build a new home studio, and I'm willing to get a very professional "high-end" equipments to help me achieve a professional all around commercial material at the end.

my main concerns would be recording/editing via midi using Cubase and Ableton so i need to get the very lowest latency possible with the greatest most pure sounds from an interface(with the most solid reliable drivers), and i have a male vocal with me so i will need to get a top vocal material as well .(ps: we make any genre of music except rap)
