Yup 250G.

This practise room is in old Austro-Hungarian military barrack Karlo Rojc. It is large cultural place and has lot of non profit organisations (belly dancers, punk club, bands, big band......etc...).

The notorious "Bakery" in Derby, former home to a million bands and immortalised in the artwork to "When Animals Attack" by Cable. Doorway also a very popular spot for glue sniffers to copulate/take a shit/both at the same time.

Sonata Arctica! Damn, It's not often you hear about that band around these parts. Except for my brother, he's pretty into that band.....especially the record that's being repped on that poster.

It's a pretty unremarkable space, but nicely-sized. We share it with two other bands.

Seriously Adequate Studio

Recording space and place for Soft Company, and friends who have nowhere else to go, to practice.

I also occasionally exercise in here. Need to to that more often...

here we go...forgot to take pics of outside. It's a good-sized building - about 10 bands have rooms here, and we have one of the smaller rooms.

looking in the door- the poster on the opposite wall that's all glare is Dogs Playing Poker. rock action.

facing the door-

looking up in our not yet used loft - still nice to have high ceilings

I also wish I'd gotten pics of the dumb Godzilla and other kaiju posters. oh well.

i recently quit the band i was in; moved the kit back home. decided to try to make a little drum-room type thing out of my bedroom closet. basically just put a rolled-up foam bed topper in the corner, a sleeping mat running along the wall, tossed a couple of bags of clothes in there, and.. it actually sounds pretty good. a lot better than when i had the thing in our bare living-room. here's a quick audio clip to give you an idea:

http://soundcloud.com/jessestoddard/qui ... e-ol-rfers

please excuse the sabian b8 hats. i'm actually looking for a set of k special drys if anyone's holding.

but yeah, any suggestions for further deadening the sound, or just improving the acoustics overall?

p.s. - anyone who can guess what that 750 is up on the shelf there is a cold MAC.

thoughts?

My parents old house had a wool closet in the basement that I would sometimes record in (including a tiny drumkit). It had a pretty interesting sound: wood paneled walls, styrofoam ceiling tiles, and the concrete basement floor. Of course, it also had about 50 sweaters hanging in there that I'd have to push aside. I think the combination of small & dead but with some diffusion is what made it cool. The sound would bounce around a bit and then quickly die. It was pretty musical, as opposed to a bathroom or hallway. It also sounded better than the fully-deadened spaces I would sometimes attempt.

A DIY diffuser panel project might be kind of cool:
