Very cool, FF. It's extra cool to see a dream start to shape up! I understand about the costs and headaches. I moved a couple of years ago and my new studio got sidelined. Gonna be a couple of years before I get back on track, so it's 'studio in a suitcase' for me.

Hey! I didn't reply to whine and moan about my woes!

That's a great rig you've got there - serious hardware with a great interface. Keep us posted. I really want to see how it shakes out acoustically.

Yeah the acoustics are a big deal. I'm doing the walls and stufflike the studios on the john sayers site. Hey Jim ,I never think you're whining, that's usually my job like I've been in a 10 by 10 bedroom for years.

Hey Firefox,

Looks like it's gonna be a very cool space. What products are you going to be using for acoustic treatment?

Have you figured out how much this entire project is going to cost?

I'm thinking about some aurelex and some of my own design stuff for mid lows ad lows. I'm in 6200 and dried in with shingles(tomorrow) and i'll probably put about another 8 grand in it. I'd like to do splayed walls and a compression ceilings with soffit mounted mains. we'll just see how far I can push my contractor and the cash.
new photos up now ....

Cool... nice work, Firefox. When do you think it'll be totally finished?

I hope by next week. I actually hired a pro to do the wipes and finish as i'm exhausted from all the work of hanging the drywall. There goes another 500 bucks.

Hey Firefox,

Very cool... but don't say that to me about drywall being all that trouble. I'm going to be fixing up my attic space soon and I need to cover the ceiling and all the walls with drywall. Not looking forward to it. But I'll be doing it little by little since this isn't an urgent project. Still, it probably won't be fun...

It's big heavy nasty stuff. The hardest part is moving it and cutting it without breaking it. you can spend 5 minutes laying out a piece and cutting it and just have it break if your not careful. If you're doing an attic I'd definitely get a couple of prices before taking it on.

Cuts that compromise the integrity of a free standing sheet if possible could be cut after the sheet has been secured to the wall. I've worked with rockers on custom instals of cabinets/and details/trim back when I worked as a cabinet maker. They sure make it look easy but they also work smart and fast. This hapens once you work a trade for a while.

To quote the Cable Guy "geet er done" This is the edge where the "do it your selfer" has more time than money. The pro can move through a room before I could unload the truck. But saving money does tend to be my favorite pass time second only to discretion. When to hire a pro and when to fake it.

Love to make that music,as well I love to tweak,Make my own sample sets

Yeah that sheetrock mudder i hired to do the finish swipes on the walls made it look way easy. He went through 4 tubs of mud. getting that stuff smooth is hell.

Man, that's a nice-looking new studio. This is the kind of thing I'm lusting after building as part of a 2nd two-story structure detached from the main house. I want to build a huge patio/deck off of it for outdoor performances too. How is that Tascam US-2400 working with Cakewalk and Pro Tools? I guess that's an M-Audio 88 key controller? When I get around to building mine, I might have some questions to run by you.
