So I've seen a lot of studio spaces and researched a lot. Basically I'm remodelling an 35' x 25' unfinished room (looks like an unfinished basement but above ground) and building 3 rehearsal rooms.
I've got a 12' x 10' x 10' gable roof wooden shed, elevated a few inches off ground. I'm moving to the location where it's installed, not there currently. I'll outline my basic soundproofing plan before my questions:
- Acoustic sealant to all crevices/corners before adding drywall
- Helices of elastic created a material that acts as an on/off switch for sound
- Leaving the material uncompressed allows audible sound to pass through
- Compressing the elastic 'springs' reduces this noise by 30 decibels
I am converting a garage/basement into a rehearsal space/project studio.
We won't be playing any very low frequency/loud instruments at all, ever in this space. No bass amps, kick drums etc.
It will be acoustic instruments, vocals, some piano, strings and probably no more than 3 players at a time.
We will be using it to rehearse, record/mix some demos/pre-production stuff and for listening
First of all may i say thanks for looking at this thread and any information shared will be greatly received.
I came across this website after purchasing Mr Gervais excellent book and before i decided to post a new thread i searched after some info i required but couldn't seem to find what i'm looking for so here goes. Get yourself a strong coffee before reading on.
im currently writing an essay and my task is to theoretically convert my bedroom into an studio production studio but concentrating on soundproofing and acoustically treating as the main topic.
im looking for publications that refer to semi pro budget setups and techniques for sorting out my room. any good ones anyone knows of?
also, anyone here ever done this?
I wonder could somebody please offer some soundproofing advice. I have just moved home and have a podcasting set up in my 'office'. The room is about 8'x8' with not a great deal of furniture in it.
I have a desk, studio monitors, mixing desk with two mics and the computer.
When recording with 1 mic there's a bit of 'echo' or bounce from the walls, but it's not too bad. However, when recording with two mics it's very noticeable and it sounds almost like a bad reverb effect.
This could have been posted on the Studio Construction board but it relates more to home studio stuff I guess.
Although I'm currently using a DI to go through my preamp for guitars and bass, I would also like to record straight from several combos I have using a mic up against the speaker in order to get different varieties regarding sound. However, I do not want to make enemies of my neighbours and have been thinking of various ways around this.
