Shit, probably could have phrased that better. Was just wondering how many of you worked in music/recording/sound/etc professionally. Right now I'm a very serious hobbyist but I'm hoping to one day make some money from it. Though, even if I never do, I probably won't ever stop. Can't think of anythi...

Welp, I just happened to find a Soundcraft 200 Delta on Craigslist for $500 and snagged it. I'm pretty damn excited to mix outside the box. Thanks for all the input, everyone.

How many of you earn a living from recording?

Seems like a lot of you here really know your stuff. I've learned so much just from reading the forums. Makes me wonder if you're all pros or just hardcore hobbyists like me.

Did you DIY or hire a contractor?

So found a space that seems like it has a lot of potential. It's 20' by 40' with high ceilings. I think that's plenty of space to partition it between a control room and a live room. How big do you suppose I should make the control room vs. the live room? Did you guys build out and treat the rooms y...

Dang, all right. In your professional opinions, what would be my best bet of these five options? 1. Buy a used Ramsa DA7 for about $500 2. Buy a used A&E MixWiz for about $500 3. Buy a used Command 8 for about $400 4. Save up and buy a Soundcraft Ghost for about $1000. 5. Save up and buy an Avid Art...

Welp, I went ahead and got the mill space. I work 9-5 so hopefully the businesses there will be gone by the time I get there to record at night. It's pretty nice, though. 40' by 20'. Now I just have to figure out how to partition it between control and live rooms, and treat it acoustically.

I was kind of afraid of that. You think maybe I should just get a control surface and mix in the box? Seems those controllers are almost as costly as a mixer...

What do you suppose would be the cheapest mixer that would make mixing out of the box worthwhile?

Entry level pro mixer?

Sorry, in advance if this thread has been done to death. I finally secured a place to move my "studio" out of my basement and into a legit space. Now I'm rethinking my workflow since I'm going to have to rebuild/connect everything anyway. The problem that I have is mixing. Currently, I use an APC40 ...

Anyone have their studio in a multi-unit mill?

I'm trying to determine the viability of renting a big space in a mill for my recording studio. The trouble I foresee, quite obviously, is that I will need to do some sound proofing because there are tenants above and below. Has anyone gone this route? The landlord was open to the idea so long as I ...

How many square feet do I need for commercial studio?

Looking to move my studio out of my basement and into a legit commercial space. About how many square feet would you recommend for the live room and control room? Thanks

I find it interesting that a drummer would prefer "audience perspective." no one listens to records imagining they're standing behind the amps, right? yeah yeah, lefty drummers, yeah yeah 'how would you pan stereo piano?', i know i know. leave me to my dogma. I'm not dissing audience perspective. I...
