Figuring out the best use of my limited space to record vocals!

Hey yall! Very new to all recording but I wanted to make a little area in my room for recording vocals, but I'm not sure what my best options are! I made a little video to show what I'm working with specifically, but I've been doing research and some people say use your closet but others say dont if it's too small, and I just want to hear any opinions on where to go from here. I cant spend much more than I already have but can make some small purchases if it would make a significant difference. All advice is appreciated!

Space and Time - Song with AIC/Jar of Flies vibe

Hi all,

This is a song I wrote about 2 years ago with an Alice In Chains / Jar Of Flies vibe. I painstakingly retracked all guitars to this song and did a remix. Feedback most welcome:

I wish I could have met you
In a diff’rent space and time
Fate intervened
The planets didn’t align
Metaphysical union
In a different paradigm
Opportunity’s window
Expired access time

Advice on renting space for a recording studio

hey y'all, as one who really hates renting and credit etc, I'm usually opposed to this type of thing but it seems a good deal. I was looking at a 9x9 in the same facility for $150. The manager called yesterday with this opening up next month.

$200/mo. No lease, just security deposit.

15x20 space, 10' ceilings.


Fingerprint security

Heat/Ac/electricity/T1 internet

Here's the places website.

Long story abridged-

Need a 12 space, but not sure about brands

I was looking for a budget flight case and ran across an ad for a Cavin RW12 Road Warrior for $200 bucks. It looks new but then I noticed the ad didn't say anything about being ATA certified. I could get a Road Runner or Gator brand at Guitar Center which I think are ATA certified for just slightly more. Or a ProX ATA. I have no experience regarding the quality of cases. I was wondering if anyone could please shed some thoughts of what might be the better chose of the three brands?

building a practice space for drums

Hello all,

My goal is to build a practice space for my drum kit in the garden. I produce and record YouTube videos, for which I shall be using the room, but it will primarily be a rehearsal space for myself, so sound isolation is the primary goal, with room acoustics being a nice addition, but not as important. It will only be me in there, so just a drum kit. My sound meter records peak levels at around 93DB when it's right next to my kit and I'm playing. Maybe I'm not a hard hitter.

Help Please Treating Oddly Shaped Acoustic Space

Newbie trying to get better quality vocals at home. I have the gear, I just need advice on how to set up.

The space is basically open, as it is a small dining room that opens up to a larger living room and has a doorway (with no door) to a kitchen. That may itself be the problem.Terrible echo.

I have 4 corner bass traps, 3 roughly 4' by 2.5' foam squares, an SE Electronics RF-X reflection filter. How should I position them?

Soundproofing for rehearsal space/project studio

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

Mobile Live Sound Rig (half rack space unit)

Starting in January, I am going to be going into schools with one other guy and putting on presentations. We need a small, portable system to drag around with us that is easy to set up and strike. We need two inputs for each of our headsets, two more for each of our guitars, one for playing music, and one for miscellaneous. Here is my idea. I want to use a unit like this:

Creating Sonic Space for MIDI Tracks Rendered from Pre-processed samples.

Hi...Open question to any and all MIDI Users-Trackers, who actully mix with Digital-audio that is Rendered from MIDI in their Projects (e.g. Kick Rendered from a VSTi Audio sample like found in N.I.'s Battery or Steinberg's Halion) : Do you process your 1st Compressions and-or EQ (within your DAW) as you would if Tracking the input of a live musician? (e.g. Thresholds,Roll-Offs, etc.)
