Had to move - studio rebuild in basement

Hi Guys,

I had to move, give up the house I lived in with my now Ex-GF and lost with it the small but fine rooms for my little project studio. But luckily the new homeplace has a quite nice room in the basement I can use for it.

Sooooo, this is the room after removing the wooden bars which separated it into two. The bars were later use for creating the frames with cloth to create a live end - dead end room.








Afterwards I used OSB plates for the floow with 5mm rubber underneath and created frames with red cloth on one side and wire netting on the back. One of the doors was removed and the hole was filled with bricks.




First things from the old place in the basement...

Installed lights, brought in the table, placed the mixing console... yap, this will be sweet.



Hmmm... need more electricity at this wall, will be done next before getting in the second table for the DAW.

The ceiling is only 2,06m or 6'9", but this is 16cm more than in the old room...

Nice set-up Mike - a move is always a good opportunity to polish the rig up.

What are you planning for the 'live-end'? Which instruments do you plan on tracking live?

Thanks Factory101!

The Live-End will only get a bit of diffusion and 2 bigger panels with acoustic foam. The ceiling above the speakers will get also acoustic foam. I think there will be recoded vocals, Guitar, some other instruments. But for complete bands it is too small and also not applicable.
