Been working like hell on this new House of ours for weeks now! I've posted a pic of how my little studio is coming along. I've only really painted it for now (I've been painting the whole fking house!) but it's slowly coming along. I'll be glad when i get everything in it! I've posted a couple of other pics of the upstairs of the property, give you an idea of just how remote i now am! Surrounded by hills and fields! lol Slowly getting there! Decorating is a real pain but it was badly needing it! It's been a long haul though.

I decided on Moroccan red for my studio. One wall is magnolia mind you but you don't see it in the pic. I like warm colours for working in. I was initially going to opt for Jazzberry as i spotted it in Dave's studio and kinda liked it but the other half didn't like it much. She doesn't like the red either that much but she reluctantly let me do what i wanted in the end. The lower window is also being blocked off. I hate it. I'll post some more pics when i get everything in and when i finally get my acoustic treatment. The new arrival that will be here next year is slowing my progress on that front but what can ye do!

My Studio Room


View from top landing


Top landing (just finished painting today)


Main Bedroom




New arrivals room


Wish i had posted photos of before so you could really the difference of the other rooms from before!

And, is it bad the baby is being left with the tiny room because i need a room for my studio gear?

looks like you could fill that bottom window cavity with rockwool and make a massive great bass trap!

Well, i spent today doing some recording. The first i have done since moving house. I didn't get an awful lot done mind you. I was also trying to mix a track but i ended up having to leave it for now. The room is so hard to work in. It is in dire need of acoustic treatment. My last room for whatever reason was actually pretty decent compared to this room. I have more space for sure but i am having real problems with uneven bass and the stereo image is not clear. I can't mix in this room the way it is, no way.

I fully intend to get acoustic treatment by the end of the year but i was going to buy it bit by bit. What part of the room would be the best place to start that will make the most improvement for the time being? Or does it really make no difference what part of the room i start with?

Cheers man. The Sound is bloody awful. The Bass is almost non existent. If i move back even slightly in my chair, it almost disappears completely. GIK had an advert is SOS offering a 5% discount if you use the code in the ad but i've left my copy of it in work. Will look it up tomorrow and order a couple of Bass traps to start with.

buy yourself a bag of 2inch sheets of rocksilk. take the slabs and move them around the room so you can see the difference they make in different places. Get your missus to make some big pillowcases for them out of some breathable fabric. You just saved yourself a grand.

It sounds like you have a lot to do. Keep going now and perhaps the long, dark, cold nights of the winter will be conducive to spending time being creative in your studio.

I looked at buying that stuff before but there was all different kinds, i was lost. I might have another look. The savings would be good.

I just went ahead and done it. I ordered rocksilk slabs online and i will get some breathable fabric to cover them. If this works out, it will be a huge saving.

I ordered a (pack of 9) 50mm RS60 1200X600 mm slabs.

And a (pack of 4) 100mm RS60 1200X600 mm slabs.

Please tell me that is correct!

RS 60 is fine for corners and back wall. RS45 is better for mirror points and cloud.

Damn! I thought it was RS60 for everywhere. It's already ordered. Hmm. Would it matter much if i just used the 60 everywhere? My plan was to use the pack of 4 100mm slabs in the corners and the 50mm slabs for everywhere else. If not. I guess i'lll just have to order more. I knew i should have asked first!

Just use what you have ordered as a starting point. Then listen and see how it sounds. Then order more if/when you think you need more control
