BAD idea.

You're taking a good space and hacking it into 2 spaces that would both be better if they were larger. I wouldn't suggest a 7' wide room for recording live instruments at all.

Keep it as one space. Make some BIG thick gobos with slats on one side which you can angle & reposition according to the sound you want for recording live instruments. At that size you could implement some really nice (deep) PRD diffusors as well.

Plan to lose at least 2-3' at the rear of the room for a big rear wall trap covering the entire wall. It depends how big the speakers you're putting in are. What speakers will you be using? Do you have neighbors close by that you need to take extra measures for isolating the sound?
