Studio Makeover

We recently went through a pretty big makeover in the main studio. It required unplugging and moving out EVERYTHING, so they could put in our new wood floors.

First Realization - There are a heckuva lot of cables in a music studio.

Second Realization - Pianos are VERY heavy and do not care about your lower back pains.

Third Realization - 10 year old boys and teenage girls are neither very strong nor good helpers without bribes.

We had carpet before, which is very good at taming audio reflections, so the studio was awesomely 'dead,' meaning that very little ambiance would be recorded along with the instruments.



But we replaced that with hardwood, and now it's more alive and sounds great!

We also removed the corner wall panels and upgraded the acoustic absorbers.

The New Studio.

I use a lot of live instruments in my music, from guitars and flutes to violins and percussion.

So this studio upgrade will affect every production from now on.

We also moved the composing rig to the right and added a client desk on the left.



Now it's time to get back to enjoying the new space. Or playing Portal 2.
