Discovered this forum years ago and disappeared for almost a decade. Don't have any excuses or crazy stories to share, just got busy with life.
Believe it or not, I remembered my log-in passwords, updated my profile and have bookmarked the link, with the hope of visiting frequently.
I am now retired as a sound engineer (broadcast television) but one thing that never stopped was my music writing and studio builds.
My hope is to once again contribute to music player in a meaningful way and enjoy the chatter...

Sound, Studio, and Stage Island

Welcome back, my friend, to the show that never ends smile

Just think....MusicPlayer has been around for 20 years, and Sound, Studio, and Stage for 25 years. Amazing...

Welcome Tony, another studio rat is always a great improvement.

This is a great forum and one of the most active ones but there are a couple lower down that could use your 2 cents!
Cheers, Kuru

Dear Tony, I will be squatting in your new digs shortly.

In all seriousness, I too am new (again) here and can think of nothing better for mental health than finding a place for our passions. I had a rough wake up call recently about how I valued myself as a contributor to capitalism and how little power that gave me when capitalism didn’t agree, as opposed to how I would have felt had I invested in myself. So here we are, with more gear than The Beatles had to make Abbey Road and infinite opportunity. Please share your recordings!

And Waves even virtualized Abbey Road!! The Abbey Road Chambers reverb is a tour de force, even if you don't care much about what reverb you slather on things.

Thanks guys for the feedback...looks like everyone is busy.
That's a good thing.
Acoustic Treatment arrived today, leaving the studio build at a standstill waiting for last three weeks. mad
I ordered the Auralex products on June 4th...
2'x2' tiles, Bass Traps, 2'x4' Panels and MoPad Monitor Isolators.

This will be the last image posted for now. I will post the completed studio when done and welcome questions.
Studio images will include racks, and two new additions; Nord Stage 3 Compact & Moog Subsequent 37.
Hope to be on-line in October. So far under budget!!!

I'm jealous. I did a trade for web work in exchange for a small studio worth of Artnovion (https://www.artnovion.com/categories/1-pro-audio-studio), and ended up lending most of it to my dad as life with little ones ended up taking priority over my man cave. I joke I'm too chaotic at the moment to not throw everything together when I want to perform/record, but I suspect that's just rationalization. Having a tuned in room with a repeatable rig is undoubtedly unfettering for you in terms on exploring creativity!

I went with the Radial Engineering London 8 kit. Eight 1' x 1', four 3' x 1'

Here's a shot during the deconstruction, and a preview shot of one wall.
