I recently got to contribute to a blog post by Mike Cahill from Redfin. The subject was on how to create the ultimate home music studio. My contribution is included here and you can read the rest of the article here.
Here’s what I wrote:
“My first recording studio was a spare closet where I attached blankets from Value Village to the walls. When we moved to a smaller house in the city, we constructed a pop-up recording booth using only PVC pipes, moving blankets and zip ties, all from the hardware store (I have step-by-step instructions available on my blog). Having a properly treated recording space is more important to your sound quality than having the most expensive microphone, and you can do it for not much money. My clients have always been happy with my sound.”
