If anyone remembers my spot from last year... you'll know I am very happy with where I am right now.
Nice dude. You've come some way on the gear front! Haha. Agree those diy monitor stands look dope.

Lots of blood and sweat went into building this place.

I'm very happy with it. It's extremely accurate acoustically.

Absolutely Lovely! What an achievement. I know it's been a while Chris but that is the dream space for a lot of us. From your news letter it looks like you continue to move from stren to stren! I love spaces like this that are designed not only for functionality but also for the vibe! Makes such a HUGE difference. Do you still toot the horn? If i remember you were a very competent trumpet player? sorry to veer a little OP.

Yup. Chris' place is really nice. I did a session with him last year. He really knows his setup well. Great knowledgable guy!

Thanks guys!

Yes, I still play the trumpet….rarely…. I am nowhere anywhere remotely close to what I was in high school and college when I won awards as a player. In fact, I recently found some old recordings and I was listening thinking “good God, I was THAT GOOD? Why the hell did I stop?!?!?!” LOL. These days my fingers are a little slow, and my lips last about 20 minutes. But I can eek out simpler stuff with multiple takes (and possibly some editing! LOL!!!!!!!!)

I spent an insane amount of time dealing with color. Things like fabric, flooring, etc. you only have limited options. I used my wife to help me with paint color. We bought like 5 or 6 samples based on the general yellow color I was thinking of to go with the other predetermined colors. In a room with no windows you really have to turn on the lights you’ll use and evaluate carefully. Overall I’m very happy with how comfortable it feels in there. I can spend forever in there and not go bonkers… I couldn’t do that with the old studio in L.A. – would quickly go insane there.

e-are: I think when you were here I had just barely had the studio up and running for a little while and the iso booth wasn’t finished. It’s now finished. The wall between it and the control room has great isolation, but the wall between it and the hallway was a little leaky (it was a pre-existing wall) so I tore it down and redid it up with 703 inside. More importantly, the room is air-tight and I didn’t have any circulation in there yet. Due to some technical restrictions, I couldn’t run central air into there and I didn’t want to add a mini-split so I built a giant air isolator maze thingy box. There’s a fan that pulls air from outside the booth in the hallway into the booth, and then returns the air back outside, all without letting any sound through. Took a while to build and it works insanely well… in fact I think the damn maze box has better isolation than the wall! If anyone needs advice on building one of those, let me know and I’ll tell you what I learned. And of course now the booth is wired up and I built a talkback switch into the desk. I rarely ever use the booth – it will likely serve most of its duty as a playroom for my son when I have horrible deadlines LOL. But I’ve had a couple singers in there and it’s a freakin’ dream J

... There isn't 1 person I grew up with who's still involved with audio today that can say they didn't start things out by using some type of ghetto stuff.

It's practically a rite of passage.

This doesn't have anything to do with studios but I have a couple questions for you. How hard do you think it is for someone with no brass, woodwind, etc. experience to learn at least the basics of something like the trumpet? My only musical experience is with guitar, bass and piano so I'm really not sure how big of a learning curve there is when blowing your instruments to get the notes
