Welcome!

This forum is a place for people who want to design and build their own recording studios (or other acoustic space), to share experiences, document their progress, ask questions, learn, and help each other out with advice.

It is also very appropriate for people with other types of acosutic problems, such as churches, performance spaces, home theaters, offices, restaurants, shops, houses, audiophile listening rooms, or any other place that needs good acoustics.

Feel free to browse, comment on other threads, and certainly to post your own thread about your place.... but please read the forum rules first! (click here)

Why did I start yet another studio design and acoustics forum? Because I've been posting on other people's forums for well over a decade, limited by their restrictions, and I figured out it was time to have a better place! With as few restrictions as possible.... and no advertising to get in the way! I plan to keep this place free from commercial advertising. Hopefully the "donate" button will keep enough funds flowing to pay for the site itself, and there won't be any need for paid advertising.

Hey Stuart!

Thanks for the welcome. I got in touch with you over at GearSlutz and have taken yet another set of measurements following your guide. I think I did it right this time so will post for you soon!

Look forward to documenting my progress.

Great! I certainly do remember your thread over there, and I'm real glad you made it over here too. Welcome again!

It would be great if you could start your own thread here, on the new forum, about your room problems and treatment issues, as this is where I'll be concentrating most of my efforts. I'll still be on other forums occasionally, and I'll reply on your thread over at GS, for sure, but this is my new "center of operations"!

In fact, I'm going to create another area within the forum especially for you to get started, since I realized that there's no specific place here for people who already have studios, don't need to design one, don't need to build one, but do need to treat one that isn't working so well!

So, here you go! The brand-new, completely unused "RECORDING STUDIO TREATMENT" area. and you have the amazing privilege of being the first to post a thread there...

Awesome! I'd be happy to post a new thread here. The one at GS is bit messy and out of hand anyways. I went back and forth a lot trying to understand where to start so would be good to start a new fresh post. Let me make sure i get everything in order and i'll post for your later tonight.

Look forward to working with everyone and sharing knowledge!

Best.

Hey new member here. My name is Kyle, ive been a pro audio engineer for 12 years, hobbyist for 20. I built my first home studio after getting Rod Gervais book around '06. I learned from my mistakes and have done 6 studios and one home theater since. My best work was done at Traid Recording, [url]triadrecording.com[/url] both in studio construction and engineering.

Anyway, looking forward to learning over here. Cheers!

Hi there Kyle, and Welcome to the forum! :thu: Glad you found us, and joined up! And with six studio builds under your belt, hopefully you'll be able to share some of your expertise with others too. In fact, if you'd care to do a thread about one of your studios, documenting how you built it and how it turned out, that would be great! So feel free to do that, if you'd like. It's always useful for first-time studio builders to have reference builds like that to help guide them.
