Wowza, that's impressive!
I call it Studio Craptastic.
The best thing about it is the acoustic treatment by RealTraps. While acoustic foam has its place to control high frequency reflections, it doesn't do anything for bass frequencies, so mixes won't be accurate without good bass traps. These are limp mass membrane traps, and they work. But I needed a lot of them to control bass buildup in the room.
They also act as diffusers, to the degree I need diffusers. If I recorded drums here, I'd get quadratic diffusers, but they're not necessary for the work I do.
The room sounds good; the sound of the room is super-important in my work. I also stuffed the ceiling with additional insulation to deaden the sound that comes through.
However, the room isn't soundproof. That would require construction of a 'room within a room' and isn't necessary here, since no one complains about noise.
The second best thing? The rug. I like the rug, and just put it in over the holiday season. I had a different rug before, this one's bigger. Yes, I'm a Pottery Barn addict! I need a 12-step program.
ImpressiveSo, as promised, this is my basement studio. It’s a single room, 33x14 with a four foot deep nook in back. The workstation is in the front, the recording area with amps in the back. There’s also a storage room for odds and ends, mic stands, etc.
Les, there’s nothing Craptastic about that! Is that Boogie on the right a Lone Star, or a LSS? What’s the Boogie on the far left?
