I just moved to a new appartment this year, and I'm experimenting with my office/music room.
Now I decided to move it just next to the fridge in my kitchen/living room.
I just need to put two of the guitars on the wall I think.

No room for the big keyboard, it is under my bed smile.gif


What does your music room where the magic happens look like?

Funny you should post this topic right after I ordered a new computer desk. biggrin.gif I blogged about it last night. This is my VERY, VERY HUMBLE setup. But my desk is going to be here in around a week. That stereo there has got to go. It's cheap and I don't need it now. I have studio monitors. My room will be re-arranged for sure.

The GNX3 is still a fav pedal board of mine smile.gif I'm actually using it as a PREAMP! I run in to it for the cabinet emulation and noise reduction/gate before going in to my recording interface then use Guitar Rig / Overloud TH2, or some other plugin. Much more consistent results than when I used to try close micing a cab in another room.

Nice Monitors! smile.gif How are they sounding? Glad you got a pair of those for mixing! Yeah, putting together a home recording setup takes time, effort and above all money. It's a process, but one worth doing. Being able to record whenever you have an idea is great.

I'm LOVIN' them, Todd. Thanks for recommending them. I can even watch videos on youtube now, at the full experience!! Whether it's combat stuff from Freddie Wong and Corridor Digital, or metal madness from fellow youtubers. My mom and dad are so generous to gave gotten these things for me at this last Christmas. Hey, they even got my little brother a small synthesizer (AkaiMiniAK).

Thanks man smile.gif It's been a very, very, long time in coming together but it's finally where I want it to be. I can do move scoring, recording, overdubs, even voice over work, etc. It's a very flexible setup. Full Midi, 8 channels of Simultaneous recording with my interface so I've actually miced a guitar cab with 7 mics (one channel clean/dry/direct) before and panned them across just to research mic placment.

Funny thing is, after that, I ran the direct box/dry signal in to OVERLOUD TH2 and liked my preset better than real thing so I unplugged the mics and use some of them togetherfor video chat to get good pickup on my voice.

My humble setup, built this yesterday actually - everything bolts to the wall behind, I have two more shelves to add on either side for some more equipment stashed away, but this is the jist of it.

Cool, man! Do you have to keep it down since you are in an apartment? I mean, can the neighbors hear you play guitar and stuff? I would be self-conscience if they could hear me because they would hear all my wrong notes whilst practicing! laugh.gif

oooh, nice one, Brett!! I like the simpleness of it. Also, nice monitor! But doesn't it hurt your neck to have to look up all that way? It would mine..maybe.

Our appartment has got two walls facing out, one next to a hallway and one near the elevator.
Then we have the basement underneath, so it's actually only one neighbour upstairs I have to worry about.
My last place I had neighbours on two sides and above and below, so this is now far better


I only really turn it up, if I have to do a REC or something like that.

Lol Brandon smile.gif

- well mastering isn't about having tons of kit but having a high-end professional set up and knowing how to use it. Even so you can see about $30-35k worth of equpiment just in the photo.

We have more outboard on the other side of the desk and under it but I like to keep things out of the way of the speakers to prevent comb filtering. LHS of the desk (the side you can see) is hardware we use sometimes, RHS (which you can't) is the outboard we use frequently, under the desk is the PC, multichannel i/o, etc. We also have a small, separate equipment room where we store cables, mics, recorders (we still carry MD, HD, muti-track tape etc just in case we get sent stuff in thse formats), multi-meters, SPL meters, an oldish 32 channel mixing console (for when we have to do stems), etc.
