We've been fortunate enough to buy a big big house in the style of the "Adams Family" and I'm planning on building a recording studio in the basement.
Does anyone have any pointers/suggestions as tp the best way to go about this regarding soundproofing et al?
The basement has previously been used as a "party room" (don't ask!) and has a convenient "bar area" which I hope will convert to a mising desk console room.
As is synonymous with basements, there is some risk of damp penetration but we have this in hand.
Any help much appreciated.
Never built a studio myself, could never save up enough egg boxes and my wife says the duvet looks untidy on the wall.
As a starter for ten, I'd try the rockwool website at http://www.rockwool.co.uk
...goto acoustic or Rockwool Soundpro. There's loads of technical stuff about setting up the right environment, according to the type of building you have.
I've always found the punters on the SOS forum helpful, too...not forgetting the info on the SOS website itself.
I'd be interested to know how this project progresses. Keep posting!
