    Built with lots of advice from a few folks on here.
    <Thanks to all who helped>
    18 months planning, probably 6 months building (did the whole basement in a year).
    It's tiny, crowded, and mine, all mine.
    11' X 11.5' X 7'-1"
    something like 92 sq feet of absorption (OC703 equivalent 3" - 4" thick.
    16 channels of input, Motu 2408 X 2, all in-the-box.
    Only new equipment purchased were headphones, headphone amp, couple of mic cables, and the parts to build the computer. This is a pretty lean budgeted affair.
    Double walls, two leaf, double doors, pretty decent isolation (have not measured it) wife says she only hears drums, and inside you rarely hear anything from the outside environment
    Cheers,
    C.

    sharp air conditioner, not beer fridge.
    not too much room for non-music related item.
    beer unfortunately, lives upstairs.

    that is unfortunate. my beer stays in my hand, or close to it.


    Cool set up man. how do you get behind the drums?

    Is your AC vented outside your room? That looks pretty slim and compact... does it work very well? I thought that those type of units have a hose that needs to be vented out of the room & I've heard that the stand alone units actually produce some heat, a bit counter productive. Maybe some of the newer Units are better? Is your very quiet?

    I have a window unit that I'm planning on putting outside and running a 8' long tube into my studio... I think it will be ok while jamming or rehearsing but I'm skeptical about the noise traveling through the tube while recording.

    it is ported out the window - that particular model is called "library quiet" supposedly 39db (I have not measured). I can't really notice it when I am recording.
    works very well, 9000 btu is probably more than necessary, but I wanted to err on the side of caution.
    this particular unit also vents the condensate out the vent hose as well.

    it may vent the condensate outside but it doesn't do an air exchange which is important for folks who need oxygen ;-) aeropac makes a simple and silent air exchanger product which just needs a single hole through the wall to work.

    i think you can get them in EU and possible in US via Canada.
