Longtime reader, first-time poster - I apologize if I've miscatalogued this post at all.
I am setting up gear in my (bedroom garage) home studio, and I'd appreciate some placement/baffling advice. It's far from an ideal space, and I have easy access to a professional, treated, space with a pair of 8050As nearby, so I'm not looking for perfection, but I'd like to create a space at home where creating reasonably portable mixes is possible.
Here's the relevant gear I'm working with: 2x Dynaudio BM5A Mk II, Apogee Duet II, 88-key Roland that doubles as monitor stand and control.
Concerns: cement walls, a desire for my girlfriend and I not to inhale fiberglass fumes in our sleep, space with parallel walls and a funny little alcove (see picture), somewhat limited budget.
As an aside, I mostly work on soundtrack and rock type production, so bass treatment is not as critical as it might be in an electronic/hip-hop production space; that said, I'd like to get it as good as reasonably possible.
