I'll try to take a picture tomorrow of GrungeIsDead and post it. It's nothing fancy, a bedroom which I use to record in. I can't really track a full band, there's no isolation. I do a lot of writing, and editing here. I also have mixed quite a few things here.

Shirley did most of the vocals for Bleed Like Me here.

I didn't do any acoustic work in the room, I just hung some panels to absorb the reflections.

Pro Tools HD (w lots of plug ins and soft synths)
Barefoot MM27s
MAudio EX66
Chandler LTD1 into Summit TLA 100 for vocals.
Chandler TG2 for Pod bass and guitar
Culture Vulture
Roger Meyer RM58
Transient Designer
M Audio Keystation 88 Midi controller
M Audio Trigger Finger for beats
Fender Custom Tele/Fender 12 string/Fender Jazzmaster
Fender P Bass
Gibson Les Paul Jr.
Gibson J 45 acoustic
Elam 250 mic
Bock 507 mic

and a bunch of stomp boxes!

I like it a lot! Looks very inviting and comfortable. I bet you've fallen asleep in your chair in that room before

+1 This is great stuff!

@Butch

I know you said you can't track a full band in there, but do you ever record that acoustic kit you have by the sliding door?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on dealing with acoustic limitations of working in a smaller room.

I see you've got a pair of MAudio EX66 next to your Barefoot's, just curious as to why and what's your take on the MAudio's?

No corner bass traps. It's a pretty down and dirty setup.

The room sounds OK, I think it helps that it's an odd shape.

Do you find the EX66's (in the position they are in) mess with the low end of the MM27's since they are blocking two of the 10" speakers facing the phantom center?

Best regards,
Larry

Awesome Butch! Way to represent (in a good way) I am guessing that it is a rough up section and then you take it to the big places for final mixing. Looks great though.

Best,

The MM27's don't seem to have a problem being next to another speaker, I don't think bass frequencies have a problem next to other barriers like a speaker, they just need cubic space.

Both speakers sound good in my home studio.

Still love the Equinox.. my room is a little similar but i tend to mix more and do more overdubs in mine so there is a bit more outboard gear. BV tends to use his more for composition, arranging and editing. Same plugins and midi controllers but I still have the S3A's.

The Bock 507 sounds BIG and very smooth. I run it into the Chandler LTD-1, with a little eq, 80 hz hi pass, and a couple db boost at 12K, into the Summit TLA 100.
It sounds pretty sweet!
