    Recording Light

    Hi.
    Can anyone direct me to where I can purchase a red light for the outside of my studio room that says something like "Recording" or "Recording in Progess"??

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Andrew

    This is where I got mine. WARNING! I you get one that has the "flasher" thing in the socket with the bulb to make it blink, take it out and throw it away. Everytime it flashes, you'll hear a little tick in your recording. This will REALLY piss you off. I know.

    If you want to make one just build or salvage a box and get a thin piece of plexi from Home Depot. Get a sign shop to create the vinyl lettering and put it on the plexi. Put a colored bulb in the box and wire it up.

    You could probably do it for $20-50. You might find an emergency exit sign that you can convert.

    Cheaper?????

    Get one of them round battery powered lights that you hang on a closet wall...

    Take a black magic marker to the lens and write RECORDING
    You'll have to put a new set of batteries in every 3 weeks or so, but if you can't afford 2$ every few weeks, you shouldn't have a studio

    Or......

    Print out a piece of paper with "RECORDING IN PROGRESS"on it... Have it laminated at your local staples...

    Punch a hole and hang it on a nail on the wall outside the studio..... Flip it to the blank side when you aren't recording...

    Very functional.

    It don't get much cheaper than that...

    Thanks for the link to that site. I just visited. They have a lot of good studio stuff.

    Furniture and such that you don't see everywhere else. I'm thinking buying a roll-around mixer stand.

    I have mine on one now, but the legs come off the base too high and then angle down at 90 degrees. The one I looked at had the legs parallel with the floor. About $100 bucks.
