Yes aha the mirror test
If you are doing vocals, and can't afford to go all crazy with lining all the walls with say Auralex acoustic foam, try to obtain yourself a Reflection filter for your mics. SE Electronics makes really good ones. On the back side (or to your back) when you are recording into the mic, try to have your sound supression pads you already have (or, go with Auralex if you can afford it). I noticed to you've got windows that appear to be outside windows. Tough task to handle there depending on the quality of the windows. No matter how much wall treatments you do, if the windows have bad seals, or are just single pane windows, it's going to be tough to keep sound from getting out, and vis versa. Double pane windows with good tight seals are about the only way to go. I know that's something that most people can't afford to remedy due to price and time, but if they aren't already good windows, it's something to think about. Chances are if it's a newer home, it has good quality energy efficient double pane windows.
Thanks for all the tips guys! Well I got some foam, and I made some DIY bass traps, plus I added in the panels I had already made. I'll post pics when I'm done, and people can offer critiques/advice again.... If you're still interested anyways haha...
The windows are high quality and double pane.
get curtains over blinds every time
you can record anywhere, u jus gotta know how to mix it properly
Yeah that's what I'm doing here. Mixing. Not much recording... a bit though. You CAN record anywhere, but depending on how you want the mix to sound you probably want to record in a place with minimal reverberations... Unless of course it has a pleasant or desired reverb like a concert hall or something...
