Hello, I have a 3 1/2 ft by 6 ft section in my room, which I would like to turn into a cheap recording area for Violins, guitars and tracking vocals.
I've thought about buying PVC pipe and creating a structure shaped in these dimensions to hang carpet or cloth from it with some kind of filler in the middle and then maybe throw my mattress on top or something.
I have a twin sized mattress I could use. My room is 13' by 8'3".
My bedroom is this corner one: my floor plan is the "vail" Floor Plans & Rates (Southridge) | Southridge and Briargate Apartments
My desk and equipment is located in front of the window and I have an open space to the right of me in the corner of this room. I heard rectangular spaces are good.
I have a Sennheiser e838 Mic which I have recorded vocals and guitars with no buzzing or background sounds with having no room treatment and my computer makes a lot of fan noise...but I feel that I wouldn't clip as much and be at a more constant volume level for recording if I had some kind of treatment in here.
If there is any cheap method to this, like using cardboard boxes and creating a wall with 3 inch thick filled walls or something and making a huge ugly box. All i see are things with wood and rockwool....I don't have access to saws or drills.
I would appreciate any and all feedback on this, I got screwed by "proffesional studios" before, and they charge an arm and a leg... I'd rather save money and just DIY.
Thank you for your time, any and all feedback is appreciated.
If I could spend under 50 bucks it would be great. Any time I asked my "music technician friend" about acoustics he always explained it in a way that made it seem like you can only do acoustics and understand it if you had the same schooling as him.
