    I would say put about 50 of it into the room itself, using the services of a studio designer - whatever you put into it afterwards almost won't matter if you get the recording space "right".

    Other than that, "advice" we give, doing your homework for you we don't. YOU give US a list of what YOU think and we'll disagree with you all you like.


    HINT: First, you must know exactly what you want to DO with your recording studio - it's all easy after that.

    So you have been given an assignment to work on your own and a real chance to research and really understand what a full studio requires and the first thing you do is go and ask a forum to do all your work? Nice. I suggest you don't cheat and really try to do it on your own so that you really do learn something rather than take the easy way out. There is zero value being spoon fed all the answers if you don't research and do it on your own. You are a perfect example of a schmuck who should not be in the recording business. People like you just PISS me off!. If i knew your real name and where you where going to school, I would rat you out in second...

    OK, I'll bite. What is the purpose of the studio? What work will you do there? What pro studios will you take your work to/from? What formats will they use? Is there a tech in your area? Is this $85k for gear or the total? Cause, I could take the whole 85k and spend that on the room alone.

    Or perhaps you misunderstood his question and/or intent. Asking for other's opinions is not the same as getting them to do his work for him; in fact I would say it's a valid form of research, as long as he doesn't present others' ideas as his own. He asked a broad question and was asked to revise it and narrow it down.

    Lighten up, for God's sake and give him a chance to respond to the mature people before you go flying off the handle.
