Haha, man, Aldi selling guitar pedals. I was so tempted to buy the lot and make some noise. They even had little practice amps. Sadly not in stock at my local.
I think the one on top is much more interesting but they have similarities which make it’s better features stand out. They even sort of begin and end in the same way, tight and doubling back on themselves, then extending into a loose strike.
The top ends on this fantastic minimal almost Arabic beam. A few carefully placed asterisks or apostrophes could have taken this to the next level.
This is really quite fancy. It was on the floor of a tram between seats so I hope I have it up the right way (I’m pretty sure I do).
One of the smoothest flows I’ve seen. This is on par with some calligraphy and sign writing. This really stands out and demonstrates the confidence of good tagging. That “I can’t rub a bit out and try again” willingness to leave a mark in public view.
I really like the bottom left’s old world class balanced diagonally by the more garish and fierce top right.
Here are the two possible layouts I’m considering.
All the windows will have curtains hanging in front which will help a little but not all that much.
I have read it’s best to have the monitors facing down the longest dimension of the room. But this leaves little symmetry for acoustic treatments and could throw out a nice stereo image.
The short layout on the other hand allows for the best symmetry but leaves the listener in a possible “dead-zone” in the center of the room.
The yellow triangles in the corners are bass traps I’m looking into making from fiberglass or heavy acoustic insulation. The red panels are absorber/diffusers. In the short layout there’s a perfect wall for a nice big diffuser but in the long layout the back wall is broken by a window.
Really stuck on this one.
The new studio space. Still very rough, needs sanding, varnishing, painting…
Making plans for acoustics and ergonomics before I move all the gear in.
