Building a home studio, but this is what i'm working with, looks like there's no two-ways about it in terms of budget, location etc.:
-Building it in a shipping container. Yup, that's right. About 20'x6.5', height around 6.5'-8'
-Budget for sound-proofing and acoustic treatment: around $7,000 maybe could go a little more.
Anyone have any ideas how to do this right? And i will NOT be reading Rod Gervais's book before this, mainly because of time.
I’m trying to build a pro recording studio I’m a self independent artist that’s trying to build his own pro recording studio at home to be able to record when ever on my on time so I need help from someone to tell me what gear I need looking for a professional setup?plz help this is my lil setup that I’m using for now any suggestions
Just moved to a new apartament, set up my old gear in a new room and turns out that now I'm receiving an unbearable amount of Radio sign. I can even listen to what the Radio show is broadcasting.
To explain the situation better, I'm going to list some info
If I plug my microphone (condenser) ----> Focuriste, then I get lower/almost nothing radio noise
If I plung my microphone (condenser)/or my p10 guitar cable (even without the guitar) ----> Presonus Bluetupe V2 Pre Amp ----> Focusrite, the I get a larger amount of radio noise.
I don't anticipate I will be able to soundproof it much, but more concerned with getting the room ready for mixing.
What would you recommend I do for the acoustical aspects to making the room acceptable for mixing?
The room size is 11'4" x 11'.8" x 9' ceiling. (Not ideal, I know.)
Also, if I'm not soundproofing the room, would it make any different if I installed a sound room double door?
If you could start over, what would you choose?
Howdy folks. I haven't done anything out of the box for over 10 years, too much traveling. Just DI'd guitars... I'll be back to recording soon enough, standard rock/pop stuff/r&b stuff - guitars, drums, bass, vocals and the miscellaneous acoustic instrument.
I sold most of my old recording gear and stayed with only a single sm57. I'm trying to put a budget and list together for a mic collection under $2000 - used.
I'm thinking about turning my basement into a recording studio. My friend is an audio engineer, and I'm a musician. He can supply the recording gear and do the recording, and I can supply the instruments and act as a session musician. My thoughts so far in terms of how money would be split are as follows:
- He pays me monthly rent for the space
- He keeps the profit from each session, minus whatever he'd pay me for session work.
I’m new to this forum. Long time member at
GS and looking for a fresh source of info
I have been hired to put together a home studio package, and I’m curious as to what you guys here may may suggest.
There are a ton of ways I could do this, and I know my gear choices. But could anyone offer an opinion on what percentage I should allocate for
This will be an initial starting point and he can expand as he grows If necessary
This came up on my feed, and thought it was pretty cool. Atmos home studio, yup, neve, yup. Drool warning.
I'm planning to convert a two car detached garage into a practice/live room, control room and iso booth. I've found a lot of good information here, and thanks to this site I found Rod's book and have been reading that for the last week. One thing that I realized quickly is that I will need specialized help to pull this off, but I'm not even sure how to find a contractor/builder that is familiar with the unique requirements of a home studio.
I came across these pictures on a Fb page I belong to and thought I'd share them here on RO.
This is BB Kings' personal home studio.
After he passed it was moved over to a museum in Indianola to be preserved for posterity and set up just as he had it.
