A well-designed room can make the difference between smooth sailing and major headaches down the road. With today’s technology, it doesn’t take thousands of dollars to get the gear needed to set up your home audio studio. Here are a few things (six steps) you should know before you start so that you can spare yourself some months of frustration and get it right from the very beginning..
Step 1: Choosing the Right Space
In the average household, you may have a selection of rooms to choose from. If you have only one option, that choice is simple. Choosing a room is more about avoiding bad qualities than choosing a room with good qualities. Some things to avoid are a cramped space, because the general rule of thumb is the bigger the room, the better. This also provides you with more space for multiple musicians and more space for your ever-growing collection of gear and instruments. So, be smart and choose the bigger room because it will work best for you in the long run.
