800 square feet.

Post by sonicdeath » Wed Jul 01, 2009 9:44 am

Im moving my studio. Im going to go look at a all open 800 square feet block office with a 10 foot ceiling

How much space do you have to record in. Do you think this will be reasonable for a large live room, and a control area?

Im going today to look at the space... I will take photos, and post them.

The cost is $300 a month.

Most definitely. $300 a month is great. I pay quite a bit more for the same amount of space.

Hell, you can?t get a parking spot in SF for less than $400.

Your doing great; well that depends on your neighbors.

Yeah, you're talking about 8000 cubic feet, which is more than enough to make 2 good-sounding rooms.

yeah that's more than enough.. i've got about 700 square ft with 8ft ceilings now and I make it work..

unfortunately i have to move the studio within 6 months... and finding a commercial building around the same size is a hell a lot more than $300... more like $1,000 and up. I'm currently in a large basement of a house. and my studio rent is also my living rent so it works out.

It's funny you should ask...the Musician/Engineer Survey 2009 has a section on studio set-up. You guys will all be surprised to find what the typical square footage is!

Results should be up sometime at the end of September or early October off the Third Monk Records site!
