Basement home studio idea

Hi guys,

We are thinking of having our basement finished and I have wrangled 1 approx 12x12 space for my home studio.

I do electronic, instrumental only music so recording instruments is not a necessity at all. No guitar, vocals, drums etc... I guess the big use will be monitoring and mixing.

Up until now I have worked upstairs in the den. Mixing with headphones only as I can only do music when my 2 young kids are asleep! So no room treatment at all in my current setup.

I have ordered the venerable Build it like the pros book.

Any tips? Where to begin?

Do what you can to avoid having similar dimensions on your width and length (and height).

Square rooms are very bad and you'll have major modal issues. The book will lay all of that out so study it hard.
