Converting a Room into a Recording Studio

Putting up a studio at home would be the greatest thing a musician or a hardcore music lover would ever want. A home studio would let you record anytime, and it would be a source of income as well if you would rent it out. Building a studio requires effort and time if you do it yourself, but a professional remodeling contractor would get it done quickly and efficiently. Here is how you get started.

Choosing an appropriate room

When you choose a room for your studio, you need to make sure it meets certain standards. The bigger the room is, the better will be the studio. If you want to have a vocal ensemble, space would be of utmost importance. A bigger room provides space for newer equipment that you buy over the years.

Choose a room that is most isolated from external noise. Microphones can pick up faint noises and amplify them a hundredfold. The room should be wholly soundproof and free from external noise to achieve complete audio purity. A lower floor room is generally desirable to minimize noise.

The room flooring is very important. Hardwood, tiles or concrete in general is the preferred flooring material. Carpets absorb only high frequencies and ignore the lower ones, leading to an acoustic imbalance; moreover, they tend to wear out easily.

Clearing out the clutter

Clear out all clutter before the modification project begins. Ensure that the room is completely empty and no wall hangings are present. Any unwanted item will cause undesirable vibrations in the room and ruin sound quality. Ideally, you need a large room that has asymmetrical surfaces but you can work with the space available.

Acoustic treatment for your room

A great recording experience is virtually impossible without proper acoustic treatment. The first step is to soundproof your room. You need to prevent completely penetration of external noise and reduce all sound within the room. Soundproofing is indeed the most important part of acoustic treatment.

You need to put in place absorbers that will contain all the frequencies within the room. The extent of absorption of various frequencies depends upon the material and quality, and the cost will vary accordingly. 

A reputed remodeling contractor can surely build the remodel the way you want, and guide you to get the best sound proofing material within your budget.

Setting up your workstation

Now that your contractor has put up the room, the next step is to set up all your gear. The biggest problem now can be the messy wires. Due to lack of organization, all the wires connected to different units will create a clutter and the room will be disorderly.

However, the contractor can organize the wires through a concealed passage so that you wouldn’t move them or disturb the units. A few wires are bound to be visible still, but would not cause you any hindrance.
With a few finer placements and arrangement of your consoles, you will have an exceptional recording studio. Go ahead and create the magic of music at home!
