I was able to find approximately 22m2 space for the studio. It is about 270cm wide and 811cm long, the heigh varies from 215cm to 245cm. The building is an old slaughter house containing businesses, but also rehearsal places with bands playing behind every wall.. well not every, but almost. This is the first place where I know I can make noise after office hours and in weekends and that is a plus. Do not have to worry about someone coming to complain about noise. The downside is that when there are some band playing it isn’t very good for recording or mixing, but that is an issue that can be worked with. The place is bit narrow and this might cause some acoustic treatment problems, but for now it feels a very good place. Industrial Military Complex guitarists other band(s) are the studio neighbor now. Nice folk except they play so damn loud that it disturbs my techno listening and they fart a lot….
The studio is a work in progress. Still not all the stuff are in their place, but it is starting to take shape. Also some acoustics plans have been made and some work has begun for acoustic elements. I am also working on SketchUp of the space and I can post pictures when its ready. For now Industrial Military Complex songs have been worked on in the studio, but so far nothing else. There is the possibility that cables could be run into the next room through air ventilation pipes and rehearsals and demo(s) could be recorded, but that is still in the plannings.
I will post pictures later on and also I’ll write some entries about the DIY stuff I am working on. Check the DIY category for posts.
For now this is the latest and greatest The Robot Initiative Studio.
