Studio Upgraded!

So, things may have arrived in a trickle, but the final result was a nice…mess.

After putting everything together, and seeming to encounter every last little obstacle, my new set up was looking like this.

old stand My goal is to stand while I record. I put my laptop outside my studio (obviously my closet) and ran cords through the wall.hole in the wall and brought the audio interface (mbox), and external monitor, mouse and keyboard into the booth with me.new standThe new stand is much sturdier than the old, though I had to cover the beautiful cabinet with a towel to keep down echo. Our most awesome carpenter neighbor, Todd Casey, was asked to just quickly throw something together, and he just out did himself. Thank you Todd!

The only bummer about my new set up is, in order to edit my file, I have to be plugged into my interface. I have this nifty laptop table and I can be oh so comfortable editing in my reclining couch. But, I rigged the next best thing.edit stationedit station occupied

It’ll do in a pinch! Now, my laptop battery is all charged up, so I can get back to work. Now, to unplug the laptop, turn the furnace off and shut the refrigerator off, and hopefully get another hour and a half before I need to charge up again.

  1. Looks good! I was going to say you’ll have to figure out how to keep the laptop plugged in, BUT I thought the hour and a half limit might be good for making you take breaks to rest your voice, and eyes. My eye doctor tells me to rest my eyes every hour or so — not that I do, and the result is very fatigued eyes. So, my point: looks like a great setup all around.

C'mon! Let me know you're reading.
