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.

Recording gear help!

Hello, I am an aspiring audio engineer that has been mixing & recording for about 6 months. I only do Rap/Hip hop , I've been wanting to upgrade my current setup to something better. I currently own a Bluebird spark SL & a cheap $99 M-Audio interface. I want a little more of a professional, cleaner, & overall better sound, So I decided to create a interface chain instead of purchasing an interface alone. To start my chain I've decided to pick the Audio-Technica 4050 Microphone, because of the great reviews especially for rap vocals.

Hi all. So much great information. I am on my second read of Rod Gervais’s book. It has been a dream of mine to have my own studio and the time has come. Here is some information and my plan. I am completely open to suggestions. I do not have my designs drafted on yet partly because I haven’t had the time to learn the a program, and I was hoping for some feedback prior to meeting with my contractor who would draft the design that I can post later.

My new studio

After what seemed like never ending renovations, here are some pictures of my new studio. I am happy with the outcome, although I am still waiting for my door and door frame to arrive so I cannot measure the sound proofing yet. Although now my wife can watch TV right above my studio which she could not do before.

New Studio Design. To go with option A or option B?

I'm building a new studio in my basement and have the option between having one big room for tracking and mixing or a separate smallish room for mixing and decent size room for tracking. What option would you guys do?
It would be nice to have a separate control room but for the space I have to work with, the control room width would only allow about one foot on
each sides of the monitors, even though there would be absorption at the reflective points, I would think it would be much better for mixing to have

Thoughts and Opinions on upgrading to new studio

hey all, my boss is a berkley graduate (audio production), has been recording professionally for over 20 years, full time. i recently built i studio for him in my hometown, with the idea of tapping in to a new market. so he's running 2 studios. the one i built came out better than we expected, and much better than the first location, which was not built from the ground up, and is located in a noisy, band rehearsal facility.
