You are right about the mastering. I used the term in a loose generic context, not a strict literal sense.

By the way, I have seen the big machines you refer to at the AES shows.

I think it's Harosha's set up that uses a layer of foam on the wall behind the speakers. I'm thinking of using the same dampening material for my town house (share a commonwall with neighbor). Would it significantly reduce the boominess of my speakers? What should I use for my Harman Kardon subwoofer also?(from my computer's speakers) I'm just using a pair of Boston Acoustics shelf speakers connected to my Sony stereo system @ 20watts/chnl (really small/amateur stuff).

Hello KN_Fan. The boominess can be controlled using the bass traps (the acoustic foam in the corners in my setup) the foam behind the keyboards does a great job of controlling the reflections from mids and highs. The bass traps are made by Auralex, www.auralex.com. Keep in mind the acoustic foam will not isolate the sound. It will only get rid of early reflections of the sound. I noticed a huge difference in sound monitoring right after I installed this.

You may want to check out the Max-Wall system by Auralex, I just ordered a Max-wall 420 for the back wall and a Max-Wall 211 for vocals. I will post new pictures once I get those in.

So those three pictures above are from my studio. The studio is in our house and the view from the window is from your back yard. There you can see how Finland is in April.

My studio is very budget compared to some other studios here. But I still want to remind that I am just 20 year old boy and music is just my hobby. I donīt have the skills to be a professional musician. I do also video programs so the camroder and the video monitor is for that use. The computer is under the table and there are also two external hard disk, a super VHS recorder, a MiniDV recorder and some other stuff. The speakers on the wall are Genelec 1029A and my computer is PowerMac G4 Dual 1 GHz, 1 Gb/2x120 Gb hard disks.

Micco,
I like your studio a lot and I too love the idea of playing and being able to look out of the window; I have placed my SD1 under a window to be able to do the same: very inspiring.
A question for you: is your DV camcorder a Sony? (The picture is a bit dark).
Greetings from Rome (almost summer here in April...)

Yes it is Sony VX2000E and I forgot to mention the Digidesign Mbox. It is in the table. But I think that everyone can recognize it.

I use Final Cut Pro 3 for editing my videos and DVD Studio Pro 1.5 for making DVDs.

Hey Micco


I've seen your pics over at Harmony Central dude, cool setup.

If your using a Sony VX2000E, Final Cut Pro 3 and DVD Studio Pro 1.5 for making DVDs, I believe it's time to call yourself a professional.

Have you ever used a Canon GL2? If yes, how would you compare it to the Sony VX2000E in terms of picture quality and perfomance?
