Ok, so i am almost done with my feature length. Its in its final couple of days and then i would shifting to another film. I wanted to ask you guys for suggestions pertaining to equipment. I really dont have an a very expansive setup, i mixed the whole feature using a mouse, so i have two speakers and a card only.
What do you think i should invest in. I have a countless wishlist but i want to move onto something thats a good logical choice in long term.
Since its a home based sound setup, what would you suggest?
My priority list is as follows:
1. A good post- production sound room (L 22 x W 15 x H 10) with a foley stage
2. A mixer
3. Going to a 5.1 setup

Reason: Needed to add a few more lines
The room would be the best (and most expensive thing) to invest in first. I would think flexibility first- a good room will improve any/all of you future projects- wheras a 5.1 setup only helps with post-production in reality.
A mixer will only help you if you need to track and route things on the fly all the time- it'd personally just get an interface and mix ITB if I was on a budget...
No need to go to 5.1 unless your clients are requesting it.
A better room would help tremendously, but so would a control surface. I just don't understand how people work without one. Even a dinky Command-8 is a giant step up in speed and the ability to shape the sound.
