It has been a few weeks since getting the keys to the new studio so I made this video to show off the progress and kick start my own content marketing strategy.
So far, the walls have been painted, we blocked up a window and covered a door that is not needed.
In terms of soundproofing, we secured rigid foam insulation to the back of the main door to block out as much sound as possible when recording. Not to mention the window and alternate door coverings contain a lot of foam to reduce the amount of noise coming into the studio.
Another challenge that any studio will have is preventing echo but one that is easily overcome with some foam and cloth. You will see in the video that I’ve got a grey backdrop behind me (that still needs to be ironed) and this is stretched around a wooden frame that has a mattress cover pinned up behind it. This was not only a cost effective solution but one that is mobile and multi purposed. If I want to use only the dampening of the sound foam I can place the frame off to the side or I can hang other backdrops from the frame as needed. Just listen to the video and see how it sounds for yourself.
So as I said, the new studio is coming along but there is still a lot of work ahead of me but I hope to keep posting and keep everyone updated on what’s going on and perhaps inspire you to get out and get creating.
