So I´ve been using a part of my house for recording for a while, and now I`m getting new studio furniture (big deep desk) and am building some acoustic panels from rockwool.
I`ve just been using the rom as it is, and am curious about what is the best way to set up a room like this.
The room is 8,2 feet wide and 16 feet long, and one of the walls is broken (as in the roof comes in at a 75 degree angle).
The room is open at the far side as it is part of an open hallway.
I`ve been using it sitting sideways so I could look out the window while working. But now that I`m throwing out every piece of furniture and redecorating I wanted some input from the rest of you slutz.
Would it be better to face towards the "broken" wall ?(Losing at least 3 feet of space so my iMac and the speakers will be free of the askew wall.)
THis seems more right when I look at other home studios. Looks ilke people are always facing the long end of the room. But if I do that I won´t have closed back wall (because the room is part of the hallway.)
So wich way to face?
Is the 8 foot width to short of a distance to the parallel wall?
Also, I have the chimney running through the room form downstairs, so that adds a permanent "beam" in the room.
I`ve included some pictures. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4012320/Pictures/IMG_0935.jpg http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4012320/Pictures/IMG_0936.jpg http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4012320/Pictures/IMG_0937.jpg http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4012320/Pictures/IMG_0938.jpg http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4012320/Pictures/IMG_0939.jpg http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4012320/Pictures/IMG_0940.jpg http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4012320/Pictures/IMG_0941.jpg
Any input would be welcome.
