El Buzon Productions

Not exactly a diary, but I found some pics of when I build my little studio a few years ago.

Heres some of the materials, I bought some fluffy fiber for one of the floors and a lot of Rigid Roxul Mineral wool for another floor, walls, and around 20 bass traps.

Live Room floor construction

Size of Live room is just enought for recording drums - I record very few drums since my studio is private and composer oriented.

Doors

I build a couple of doors using plywood and sticking fluffy fiber inside them.

They were cheap to made, look decent and work great.

Thanks for the compliments!, it was a lot of work but a lot of fun. The most tedious part was building the 20+ bass traps. I had a small woodworking shop back then, so that help. heh

Hi Toño, Thanks!, nice to see you here, in post 7 you can see the studio almost finished but it is always a work in progress. I do need to take more pics and I will post them here.

When I built the studio and installed all the wood panels, doors, window frame, diffusors etc I liked a lot the way the vibe in the room felt with the wood without stain, so I decided to keep it that way, more rustic rather than very neat, in fact the walls are rugged, I just painted on top of the cement.

The vibe in the room feels great and very warm, great for composing.


Next time you visit Hermosillo, your more than welcome to visit my little studio

Here's an update of all the things that I have done to my studio in the last 2 years.

Skyline Difussers I made for the backwall of the drumset.

I made 6 foam panels the size of a bed and 7" thick ... Foam isnt my favorite material but since they where very big, I wanted them to be lightweight to be able to move them more easily..

In the second pic you can see the difussers and the panels installed.

I still need to put more difussors or something lo liven more the room

I no longer own a truck so my bike rack served to transport all the materials

Heres a few pics of some of the materials that I bought.

Looks beautiful. I bet getting rid of the plywood on the panels in the control room helped a lot. I am assuming business is good because of your renovations and all the new toys in the racks.

Where are you getting the mineral wool down there?? I am building a studio in Tijuana soon for a friend and am trying to price out stuff down there.

Hi Herman, thanks for the compliments.. yes covering the walls and plywood with mineral wool did make a lot of difference, I think what did the most difference was the wall in post #20 with the angled panels. I still need to liven the drum room and do more tests, but so far the rooms are sounding a lot better.

Bussiness is hard around here in Sonora, fortunatelly I have some good clients and work very hard to be able to buy more toys :-)


I buy Mineral wool and fiber glass in Termo Aislantes de Chihuahua, so you can look in Tijuana for places that sells Termo aislantes, .. if I remember correctly each 4'x2'x 2"thick roxul board costs around $100pesos($7.5dlrs) and they sell them in packages of 10

I hope it helps.

Yes, I can see from your frequency response graph. How are the decay times? You should post waterfall graph for the low end.

You know that Roxul is almost the same price up here? I only use it when I need the 8pcf density for certain treatments. I forget the numbers but it is best to buy in bulk and have the stuff delivered.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Herman, I somehow managed to lost/erase the waterfall graphs, they didnt look too bad...I need to take measures again but Ive been busy, I will post them when i get to do the tests again.

Glad to help, if you need to sort out something else here in Mexico let me know, if I can I would gladly help..

all the best with the proyect in Tijuana!
