I recently upgraded my DAW/preamp/converter equipment and have noticed a HUGE improvement in the recording quality. For the past few years I've located my studio downstairs in a relatively large room with hardwood floors and taller ceilings. Since I've upgraded my equipment (for unrelated reasons) I've moved upstairs into an extra bedroom. The new room is carpeted, smaller with shorter ceilings and basically "dead" sounding. Since I've upgraded to Logic I have access to more and better plugins for room sound, reverb, delay, etc. I've been able to get better recordings with the new equipment in the smaller room than I could with the old equipment in the "better" room. ...So my question is this... Is it better to record in a "dead" room and add the room sound with plugins or in a more lively room and be "stuck" with the room sound you ve recorded. I've been told it's easier to ADD the room sound than to try to REMOVE what room sound you may have originally recorded. What do most of you do?
