Posted this on the Thorn board, but since I'm so proud of it, I'll share it with you guys too. After much tweaking my little studio is ready to be shown. So here it is, built in the back 1/2 of our downstairs family room. No windows available with this plan, so I put in a double pane glass door that allows me full view of the rest of the family room while looking across I can see outside though the family room window. I am so happy with the way this has turned out. At first a 9x14 space seemed like it would just be to small. But now that it's about done, I really dig it. Had to build the workstation and storage box myself in order to keep them only as deep as needed while preserving as much of the 9 feet as possible. So with a room so small, miking would be pretty tough. The solution ( which works just fine for me thank you) Palmer box in line from the Shiva direct to the Korg D1600. Oh and that box to the left of the Korg, thats my new "band" . Boss DR880, Man I just got this and I can't express enough how cool this is for a guy like me. Best gear purchase I have made maybe ever except #68 of course Such a simple set-up for the quality of recordings I can get it's silly. The drums are my son Kyles. Seems they only work at a bizillion miles an hour right now, if you know what I mean. Thats a Thorn safe btw no guns in there. So there you have it, this is what I do. No pressure, no expectations, no smoke, no breaking down or setting up, no conflicts. Just pure relaxation. Ahhhhh. I freakin love it. Kevin Drag about the spots in my pics. Seems as if there is minute particles in the air, probably from the carpet on the walls, that really get set off by the flash.>: Oh well.
