I apologize if this has been covered, but my searches didn't come up with anything. If if it has been covered, could someone point in the direction.
The company I work for has recently bought a school, yup, the whole damn thing. We've converted the gyms into production space but there's a bunch of classrooms left Since I manage the place the boss has basically given me free run and permission to use some rooms for my own purposes so I'm setting up for general jamming and eventually recording. Not for a career(already got one of those, lol!)just for some fun and recording my own stuff. I am working with my old drummer so we will have a full kit. I'm curious if there is an ideal size room. Basically I have 3 sizes to choose from, 10'x20', 30'x30', and one is 30'x50'. All are carpeted with 2 exterior cinder block walls and 2 interior plaster board walls. Thanks for any input!
How high are the ceilings? If they are real low smaller would be better. Basically turn it into a large iso booth booth and do all your verbs digitally. If you have a decent height ceiling go ahead and take the larger space which will be more expensive to treat acoustically. Then you can have fun with room mics.
