Re: Building My Home Studio....

No got the desk off the internet. Getting some monster bass traps for the corners soon and then going to treat the early reflection points. Yeah the main monitors are on the stand at the minute. But was just wondering if the sound from the woofers of those speakers would be interfered with. Because ...

Re: Building My Home Studio....

New monitors sounding sweet.... Still burning them in though. Question, do you think having the monitors on the desk will interfere with the sound? Just need to treat the room now.

Re: Music Production. Help me Please.

Ahhh the feeling of frustration and the longing to be good at something instantly...... We've all been there. Sometimes having a musical background, then coming into music production is actually harder than starting off with no musical theory knowledge at all. It took me six years before I made anyt...

Re: Building My Home Studio....

That should do you nicely. Clean power running via a consumer unit up there would be a big plus. Also see if you can get as many sockets as possible, dot them around the studio mid room height if possible :) Doing the acoustics for it might be a bit of a mare, but you can go a long way with plenty ...

Re: Building My Home Studio....

That looks like it could be a cool space! After years of taking measurements and using that to help me plot out my studio layouts, these days I do all that with a grain of salt. Definitely good to know the basis of what you're working with (assuming you're capturing that data accurately enough to g...

Re: Building My Home Studio....

Thanks man... Cheers for the advice. Yeah thats the plan, but I think it may mean one of the monitors reflections will slightly hit the window. But it'll never be perfect.....

Things you wish you knew when you started....

Thought it would be a nice idea to start a thread to pass on things we have all learned over the years. Not everyone has to agree with what you say, but if its helped you tell us about it. Things I wish I knew when I started: Use reverb on a return track. (So much more control, doesn't drown it) Gro...
