Hi Chaps – Hope all is cool with you and yours!

It’s been a bit hectic here over the last few days, but the track I mentioned that I had to get out by yesterday I, in fact, managed to post on Sunday! (Yippee for the workaholic!)

I have had some free time though, so I’ve done a lot more reading both here, and on the construction site, which has enabled me to ‘stand back’ and reflect on the current design. :wink:

I’ve tried all the ways I know to get another wall on the left side to create that third room, and every time I just ruin the whole of that side completely, I’m totally beat on that one. :evil:

Given that I’m only concerned about the occasions where I’d want to record both drums and bass at the same time, I’m now going down the road of trying to design a drum booth in there to get some isolation between the two, and still maintain a line of sight for the drummer to the control room.

Now, although Kendale’s kit is awesome, it’s not a typical kit, so there’s more room on that side (at this stage anyway!), than there appears to be.

Can any of you offer any suggestions as to how I can nail this baby? ie:

Do I need the third Room?

Could I get enough separation with good quality moveable panels?

Could I chance putting a bass cab in the vocal booth?

Is a Drum Booth a workable option? (Additional HVAC etc.)

Work is now full-on until the end of Feb, but I so want to start working on the framing drawings, and I just need this last part sorting so that I can run with it.

Thanks so much Guys for all your help – it’s very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Lou. 8)

'The most gracious, courteous, easement in an upward and (hopefully) forward direction' :wink:

hey guys!
great designs flying around this post!

Lou, I was hoping you could email me a copy of one of the many skp files shared between you and Ken. I'm about finished with my tracking room and will start designing the layout of my control room, would LOVE to have the dimensions and angles of the control room!

looking forward to the build phase!
Kevin
