    Exterior views of my house leave no doubt as to it's location, which I prefer not to share. What's inside is my private world.

    ok
    Awesome !! May look a little weird, but angle the glass a few degrees if you can. Can really help in a small room.

    Missed that conversation about stonewalls and such.

    In the meantime I put some framing around the opening where the window will be, and moved a bunch of junk in as well as put up a little bit more ceiling corner diffusion and bass trapage. Not having any money to really do special things I put an unused (and old) duvet in one corner and a couple of blankets in the other, and covered those with acoustic ceiling tile.

    So far it sounding OK, I don’t get a lot of variation in the base moving around the room. Next will be adding more treatment to the flat walls and above the mixing station. Oh, and I put several cases of old paperwork in banker’s boxes behind the desk to trap some of the bass there. It’s not as good as a proper box of sand like you should use, but hopefully it helps a bit.

    I’d love to cover the acoustic tile in the corners with some fabric. Ironically, I had a whole bunch of fabric (about six garbage bags full) that I gave away just a couple of weeks ago. It’s that old definition of junk being ‘stuff you throw away a week before you need it.’

    Maybe I’ll just paint them.

    By the way, the other computer station there is my server using a Mac Mini )hiding underneath the mouse pad) which is for backing up my photography, and it also holds my iTunes collection.

    Closing in on the final bits, which will have to wait for a cash infusion, including glass for the portal and some diffusion/absorption panels for the ceilings. But otherwise ready to go.

    I used old towels behind a large sample canvas portrait from my portrait studio days, then stapled on a piece of one of the backdrops that I had painted myself to be an ‘artistic’ absorber behind the speakers. In the tracking area I used a memory foam mattress pad covered with an old duvet cover, pinned up with some grid wire that came from my garden but hasn’t been used in years.

    So far this project only cost me a box of drywall screws and the wood to frame the portal since I had pretty much everything else on hand or I faked it from other materials.

    When I have lots of extra cash - yes.

    Right now, no extra cash - but do have gear and space. I just want to be able to record the basics in a space I enjoy. The blue room is pretty isolated so it’ll have to do for now when doing acoustic instruments and vocals. Everything else will be DI or midi.

    Sweet, I have a dedicated 4th bedroom for my Home Studio where I walk across the courtyard to get to it.

    This means that people in the main house don't hear what's going on in there so it's private.

    It was a ManCave but we turned it into JamCave Studio which is the same name as my YouTube Channel.

    All the clutter on the walls are Automotive but they make a great sound treatment so I kept it.

    It's Cars & Guitars for me anyway.

    I know longer have multiple Computer monitors now (see fourth pic of my Studio Desk).

    Hey jpjr50 - nice, cars and guitars are always a great combo.
