Thanks much. The lighting options really help. Wait til we have the room tuned, art on the walls and some beer cans and whiskey bottles laying around....and negligees hanging from the moose antlers. (let the old timer dream a few more minutes he might get lucky)

re: updates; anyone getting the feeling one of Sinc contractors has accidentally cut the main power line and Sinc has lost contact with the outside world.

More likely he's finalizing things and tuning the room, which can be the most time-consuming part of the entire build process, since much of it is cut-and-try.

You are correct sir. That and running out of money put the brakes on for a minute. We're finishing up ourselves. Painting, wiring etc.
My contractor has become a good friend and when our studio design took shape became very excited about our choices, saying it was the nicest home studio he'd built...and he's built quite a few. Having underbid the job he has offered to finish everything up without payment or delaying payment for a year or two. I've never heard of a contractor doing this and of course we took him up on it.

We had a big day yesterday as he drilled holes in predetermined locations to accommodate our wiring designs. Here's a picture of two of the four plates that will be soldered and in place within the next week. After that we can hang the last of six doors, set up the board, patch bays and monitors and start test recording and tuning the room in early April. Getting close....(r)

Realized I hadnt seen progress on this for a month or so, but now checking in realize its me, not you... But its worth a bump anyways to get this one back in rotation. Can't wait to hear the first recording out of the new room.

Moving forward.
The last piece to the wiring is this plate in the control room. Framing it with 2x4's to give more space so not to stress the connections.

Two amazing things happened that saved me thousands of dollars.
Found a guy literally 2 miles from my house who had dismantled his studio selling Kinetics Noise Control baffles at about 10% of what they cost new, and my brother donated his rarely used Tascam 38 eight track 1/2" machine (all the rage with Millennials) to the project. Some use this machine strictly for drums.
Finishing the soundproofing and getting the board and computer running in the next few weeks. Already have a kit set up to practice which I haven't been able to do since we started. Feels good.

The lighting makes it. I'm 100% sure it improves the sound too.

My wife's contribution. I hadn't thought much about the lighting. She's into graphics and more visually oriented and sprung for an LED system that give you all these trippy options controlled from an app on my phone. So you can't come up with the perfect drum part?... try Kalahari Sunset. No?...ok Tokyo Nightclub. You get the idea.
Pretty cool.

That's really cool! I think mood is so overlooked!
