It's that time again! MOVE TIME! I talked a little about how many recording setups I've done in a previous post. Let's just say I've done this a time or two. Setting up a new audio recording studio with each new house bring up a few questions that are always consistent:
I'm a big believer that a studio is sort of an ever-evolving workspace. Whether it be obtaining the right acoustic treatments and gear; or learning how the room acts with sound; you might be constantly tweaking it.
Planning a recording space can be a very challenging project if you are not prepared. The worse part is you could spend WAY too much money on things you don't need. Remember to have a plan, lay it out, budget, ask for advice, test, then enjoy.
This time around I decided to make my life a little easier. I bought a WhisperRoom! It's going to take away a lot of the guess work, but it opens up a new challenge...sound treating the WhisperRoom! I've recorded in them and they're great...if you know what you're doing. Since I am vocal only (because I have no patience to learn an instrument), the acoustic treatment needs to be dead enough but natural in timbre to not sound flat. In the upcoming weeks, I'll document the WhisperRoom assembly, acoustic treatment, and workspace setup.
Here are a couple of resources that talk about acoustic treatment and studio setups. Good reads!
