Yay. Building a new studio. Lets do this!


Hey man. Yes sir. 244s in the center on the ceiling, and monsters on the side. 12 of the 15 traps have range limiters (the membrane under the fabric that kicks back frequencies over 400 hz). I put the monsters on the side mainly because of where were able to find studs. The monsters behind the monitors are full range.


Alrighty. Video feed with the ADR streamer is up and running in the V.O. booth.

I was playing around with some colored lighting

And finally got rid of those sticker things that were on the windows :smiley: That golf course looks gorgeous out the back window in the spring when grass starts turning green again.


The glare off that back window was killing me. Friend of mine bought these at a thrift shop for 50 cents. I was originally gonna do grey but she said that would look terrible. Then I thought about doing some that would match the fireplace and her and my wife laughed at me because I’m notoriously bad for matching colors…hell I can’t even match my shirt and tie half the time. The blue looked weird to me at first, but then I started to like it after staring at it for about 10 minutes.

Gonna replace that ugly cheap ass curtain rod next. And its nailed to an unpainted 2x4…so should probably re-paint that. I think I wanna stuff a trap up there too.


Aw man. This was frustrating. The beginning stages of the 5.1 implementation on this room, and just enough to get me through this next movie. This whole system is gonna have to be gutted and re-configured, but for now, I have 3 fronts, 2 rears, and an dedicated LFE which is just enough to get me through this film that’s due in 2 weeks. I didn’t have time to move the TV, so that middle speaker is blocking a little bit of the screen. I moved my dock to the right side of the computer screen and just deal with it. Unless you have about 20 feet of clearance behind the monitor screen, there’s really no good way to deal with the center speaker. The center should also be back another foot, but I’m gonna have to deal with it.

I did finally get the speakers networked together (the remote software ties them together via Cat 5 and USB). And the software syncs the speakers meters digitally to the surround bus in PT HD.


DOH! I walked into the studio today and it was 85 degrees.

“Alexa, set the thermostat to 72!”

(Nothing happens).

So I walk to the damn thermostat to do it myself. I’m scrolling through the thermostats GUI menus trying to figure out why it feels like an oven in here and I realize the fan isn’t on. I stick my head out the back porch to see what’s going on, and the thing is dead as a doornail.

I call the company that put it in and they’re in 20 minutes. They crawl under the building and find the ductwork had collapsed. They went to Lowes, bought some more and replaced it. Luckily it was the normal duct piece that connects to the return and not the expensive sound proofed stuff we ran to the tracking room. Whew close call!!! ~feeling relieved~


Yup. Spending money on things like this feels awful compared to new gear. Was it under warranty?


Luckily this one was completely covered. I didn’t have to pay a dime since that AC unit and the ductwork overhaul was only a year and a half old.
