Hey @venuestudios, didn’t you break up your space into separate tracking and mixing rooms?


#62

I did but in the end the amount of tracking I do just did not justify setting the better of the two rooms (acoustically) aside for tracking that rarely happens. This has been a great room and sounds really wonderful.


#63

Hey man! You came to mind the other day! Working on any new music?


#64

How did the move end up going? Did you get set back up yet?


#65

It’s all good here, mixing room set up, I also work with my friend to adapt his garage as a rehearsal place. Mixing all the time, I feel I progressed a lot. How are things in IRD? It’s been a while since I visited last time.

Any new contests coming?

Looking great! And yes, as a matter of fact, I’m working on building a contest right now. Just starting to coordinate some stuff for it. Good to see you on!

Those look like some pretty epic bass traps lol

I got a kick, snare and high-hat so I can drum, that’s fun.


#71

Are you putting them to use lately? :slight_smile:


#74

Ha wow it worked, I was so skeptical that merging threads was a thing! But very cool!


#75

I forgot how much really cool stuff there was in that other thread!

Here’s the very first ‘studio’ I had when I was a kid. This is the oldest photo I could find…I had this setup from middle school through the end of high school. It was taken with one of those disposable cameras lol…then I took a picture of it with my cellphone.

When I was in college it kind of morphed into this…More of a place to sit around and program keyboards than a studio per se. Lexicon into a laptop. That was it. And man…those trusty little KRK rockets! Used them for years!!!

When I moved to Florence SC a church I was working for had an extra house they gave me to use for a studio. This was about the time I joined Recording Review. I used a lot of the money I had earned touring, gigging, and working for production companies to buy the gear to get started.

Then the church ran out of money and had to sell the house, so I mooched a free office off someone to let me set my stuff up in.

When I was finally able to pay rent, I moved out of the office I was squatting in, and moved into a studio building that had gone belly up financially. I struck an agreement with the owners to try and start rebuilding it. It was filthy and atrocious looking when I moved in. They were pretty desperate for a renter. I think they let me have 6 months free. It came with that iMac, the little Presonus board pictured, a small mic locker, and a Motif. I began fixing the place up!!

About a two years later, I had it about where I wanted it…

Then I lost almost everything in a fire.

So I collected the insurance money, bought a console, and lived in this temporary rental house for a year. It had gorgeous sounding 19x25 foot room 10 ft ceilings, and not too many parallel walls.

But it was only one room and the workflow was a nightmare. The electricity was bad and there was no conceivable way to set up a vocal booth. I was ready to buy a spot at that point. So I found the best deal on a house that I could and started renovating. And…that’s where I am now (in the other thread) :smiley:
