When you have all the gears you need to set up a music studio in your home, your next big step is to designing the room. Many beginners overlook the essence of this step. A room well designed for a music studio can actually deliver a smooth sailing music recording project which could be the next big thing in your entire music career.
So let’s start designing your music room aka music studio!!!
Select the best room in the house. If you have 2-3 vacant rooms in your house, you have those to choose from. If not, then you will have to decide which room you will have to give up to transform into a studio. All rooms will have different characteristics. Nonetheless, you will want to go for the biggest room that is far from the common household noise (and outdoor noise). You will also want a room that has good flooring and high ceiling.
Redesigning the entire room. Remove everything that’s in the room. You want to totally transform the room so you need the old stuff out. After the room has been cleared, draw a picture of what you need. If the room has windows where sounds can leak in and out, you will want to consider replacing the windows. If you decide to replace it with soundproof windows, you will want to contact the best replacement window companies in Cleveland to properly install it for you.
Add proper Acoustic Treatment to the room. If you already have an acoustic treatment plan, then you are ready to put it into use. If you are still looking for the perfect acoustic treatment plan, you may want to do a little research. Basically, an acoustic treatment tends to treat the surfaces of the room which includes the space, the surface materials, and even isolation. This is to optimize the acoustic behavior within the room.
Putting together your workstation. You have a room prepped with carefully planned acoustics, now you need to arrange your gear so that you are ready to start your first recording. Add in all the gears that you need for a recording and you are ready to go. Have fun with your first recording.
