So I was supposed to move into a huge studio this month, but I don't think that's happening, so I'm THIS close to buying an annex I've found.

Finally built a bare-bones TNT Flexy Table to I finally have a shelf that's wide enough to hold the old Technics SA700 I got free in college and used for about 10 years starting around 2003 until I had to loan it indefinitely to my parents for space reasons an switch to a trash picked NAD. I don't care about the looks or "audiophile" angle much, just wanted a cheap, easy to adjust and level custom shelf, so I saved some money and effort by just using 3/4" plywood instead of 2" MDF for the shelves, total cost was around $70 and it took about 20 minutes to build and level.
Traded the NAD to them for the Technics and just got it set up before work this morning. Sounds and looks even better than I remembered.
Bottom shelf is for the old Dell I use to livestream, but I won't have time to set that back up until next week. Also devise some kind of little kickstand to keep the turn table lid open since the springs in the hinges broke 10 years ago and I have to take it off every time I play a record now.

I’m currently making a rack mount skeleton from scrap 2x4s, but I got to the screw phase and realized my pocket hole screws were about an inch too short. Now I have to go to Home Depot, which in reality means it’s getting postponed until next weekend
Once I finish it it will be cool though, because it will also function as a surface to set a table top over.
Edit: here it is on the left...also put in some shelves for monitors and other sundries
still have to put some visuals on the far walls. some people tell me to put up foam but i have never ventured into that realm. am open to recommendations

very conflicted about whether to put a bigger mixer in or not...
don't think i'm at all interested in a mixer with built in fx unless someone can attest to them being worth anything in a studio setting...

i switched from mixer to audio interface with shit ton of inputs route, and enjoy it.
but every now and then miss the mixer setup. might buy a new one one of these days.

a hardware mixer is so fun to jam hardware on though. sends and all that. but i don't do much of that currently.

Forget about foam, it's pretty much useless. On the other hand, DIY acoustic treatment (using rockwool etc..) is some of the smartest investment you can make ;)

One of my roommates moved out so I'm commandeering that room and turning my current one into a studio. It's going to be nice to have all of my gear out and able to play with.

i go back and forth between liking it and hating it. it definitely can become a big burden mess that just becomes too much of a headache to deal with, compared to being simple and using 1 or 2 things at a time.
