Here’s Part 2 of my series of video diary posts about building a home mastering studio in my garage. Part 1 is here.
There’s not a huge amount of new “how-to” information to pass on to you yet, because the building work isn’t finished, but loads of people have been asking me for an update, so here it is !
We’ve had one major setback so far, which I talk about in the video – a “hidden” complication of the process which could affect a good number of people who want to do something similar.
In the video you briefly see Glenn Dunmore from GKD and Andy Maxwell, who are doing the building and electrical work for me – they’ve done a fantastic job and I highly recommend them, so if you live near Cambridge in the UK and are interested in doing something similar, get in touch ! Just click on their names above to send an email.
One thing I haven’t mentioned in either of the videos is cabling – I’d asked Andy to sort out phone and networking connections for the studio, and I’d decided where I wanted my power sockets, but he was the one who suggested running speaker cable for the monitors and putting in extra sockets for possible active speakers in future !
It’s always good to have someone proactive who thinks for themselves when you’re doing a project like this, if only to help remember the things you might have forgotten.
You can see and Part 3 of the series here, and Part 1 of the project is here, if you missed it. Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel or sign up to the mailing list to make sure you don’t miss future updates !
