  1. Music: Recording Studio
    Well it's now gotten to the point where I need a dedicated client room/office/recording and mixing space so I am starting on turning the front room of my house into such an area. It's a nice large room with plenty of natural sunlight which is perfect to bring clients into and discuss their...
  2. Music: Recording Studio
    The short question: Do the same acoustic treatment principles apply for a recording studio vs. a straight-up practice room, where I'll be primarily playing guitar through my FRFR monitors? More info: I finally have an empty bedroom I can turn into a dedicated practice space (guitar/bass...
  3. Music: Recording Studio
    I'd been doing what most of you guys were doing as well, I understand, and just muting the room mics on Superior. However, last night I started screwing with them a bit after reading some of the Systematic Mixing guide on the commute home, and not only turned up the "close" ambient mic, but also...
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    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...

    AKA, I got monitors, now wut do? AKA, Make your room suck less. This is a starter guide to treating a typical home recording setup. Its probably pretty bloody long for something that claims to be a 'starter' guide, but acoustics is a huge subject, and it will be just an introduction. I'm going...
  6. Music: Recording Studio
    Pardon the shit lighting, but it was either wash out the lens, or really dark pics. Here's Studio Quigs these days. On my desk: KRK Rokit 8s, Presonus Bluetube (that Drew is never getting back), Carvin AC120, Motu 828, Axe-Fx II, T21 Sansamp Bass DI. On the floor: HD1221s, MFC-101, Bad...
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    So, here's an interesting conundrum: KRK VXT4 moniotrs are $199 each at MF right now, normally $299. I have M-Audio AV40 monitors, which also have 4" woofers and half the wattage. I am starting to become disappointed in their accuracy - woofy midbass that dies hard at about 80 Hz, a generally...

    My band is moving our practice pad into our house, and i need some way to keep the sound in the room as much as possible without making my wife and dog go as deaf as we are. Cheap is a plus, of course. The room is a rectangle. 8 foot ceilings, sheetrock walls and ceilings, hardwood floors, one...
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    I'm not really setting up a studio, more a music room/home office, so this shit is mostly just for show. The setup behind the monitors does seem to work pretty well though, especially the Auralex "feet" underneath them. The Rokits are super bassy as it is. When I actually mix something, I'll...

    This is absolutely the best *free* room planning/layout software I've ever come across. It's just a sluggish Flash app, but it works well, offers exceptional versatility, and with the free account you can plan up to a three floor house, stairs and all. You can even use it to plan a garden or a...

  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Well, it finally arrived--my new Dead Room isolation cabinet by Grendel Sound. It took awhile, and a PayPal dispute, to get the guy who runs Grendel to actually ship the damned thing, but he finally did. There's a big ol' thread on the Harmony Central amp forum about this guy's business...

    ... and through a magical chain of events too miraculous to be explained in mere words, I wound up installing Slackware. Anyone else using this one? If so, please slap me for not switching sooner. Jeff
