3313 I will also have some exciting news and pictures soon as well. Good luck and look forward to keep an close eye. Lucky for me I have huge granite stone walls surrounding my studio on three sides and no one lives closer than 300m from the studio... I look forward to reading those, it sounds amaz...

Attic Shaped Studio

I collected more supplies today - some wood, the box of fancy TX screws, two saw horses, skim plaster, and last but not least, several tubes of caulk. I got some 89 x 38 mm stud wood. Once this project is finished I'll use those to try out some experimental soffit layouts with the plywood & OSB ...

Home recording studio in the attic.

Have you tried moving the speakers very close to the front wall, say a couple of centimetres away?

Home recording studio in the attic.

Do you have any photos or other data of that setup Gareth? Would be very interesting to see. The official Genelec instructions for flush mounting the rear ported 8030; 8030 flush fitting - updated with all dimensions.jpeg I've attached the Genelec documentation on flushmount kits for their bigger sp...

Private studio in Slovakia

This is so good!

It made me think of something I read in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Tom said something like "It is insufficient merely to do something well; to be truly worthwhile, it must also be done with style"

Cheers!

Home recording studio in the attic.

3315 Thank you endorka and Starlight for valuable information, I follow your great projects. Monitors should not be on an axis 45 ° from the corner. My monitors are located on this axis, which is not good, they should be from the inside or outside of this axis. I think that's why SBIR is doing so b...

Home recording studio in the attic.

Congratulations on starting your project and welcome to the forum. This shape of room is great fun, and in my experience can give recording acoustics that are interesting in a very good way. Some aspects of it are also beneficial to a mix room. On the other hand, it makes predicting room modes diffi...

Thank you, those are brilliant insights. You read me very well concerning the extensive research, pondering, what-if-ing and assessment of tradeoffs. And you are also correct in the assessment of the point where I hope it is good enough. And that was; 1) Room 2 is already good enough to stop sound f...

We had snow about 6" deep here only a week or so ago. Even built a snowman :D All gone now! Another point of detail concerning the studio ventilation. The fan & controller have three speeds, and I'm also hoping to use the ventilation system in "trickle" mode when the fan is off. T...

CO2 meters, sound useful, I had no idea you could buy such a thing outside of NASA :D I still sometimes use the studio bathroom as a reverb chamber by the way - never done it live during recording, only re-amped stuff when nobody else was there so no stories I'm afraid! The palette of OSB and plywoo...

Thanks for the link to justfans.co.uk Gareth, they were really helpful as you said. They had the specifications of the components to hand and did a sanity check on my figures. All in order thankfully. I was able to get a suitable filter and various other components from there too. I bought the "...

Thanks again for the warning Gareth, please continue with these. Even if I know the score it may be useful for others who don't.

Fortunately this time I noticed when specifying the materals and reduced the blue template for plasterboard accordingly. Phew!

Cheers,
Jennifer

Thanks for the update Starlight.

I was going to get a 15 x 15 mm rail, but after what you've said I'll use some spare 18mm plywood from the above cut. There will be enough along the manufacturer's straight edge to make a long enough guide. Cheers!
