1. The Size of Your Monitors Should Be Appropriate for the Room They Are in
There is a delicate dance that takes place between your monitors and the size of the room that you have them in. Some people think that bigger the monitors are better and that they will sound great no matter what, but that’s not always the case.
Putting large monitors in small rooms is not a good idea as large monitors produce a great deal of low-frequency energy that takes up a ton of sonic space in a room. When you are listening to the playback of what you just recorded, it will sound muddy at best, which is horrible when it comes to recording your music.
This is why it’s important to have a professional look at your space, evaluate the best options and help you make a decision when buying monitors that will be used in said space. Using the right monitors are going to change the way you make music.
2. The Lighting in Each Room Has a Bigger Impact Than You Might Think
With all the mathematics that are factored into designing the perfect recording studio, it can be easy to forget what is most important—the performances that take place after pressing the record button.
If you have a world-class pianist coming in to record a somber ballad, you don’t want to have lighting in the piano tracking area that is reminiscent of a dentist’s office. You want to create a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
The right lighting can actually make or break a great performance. Making the performers of the music feel relaxed and at home should be high on the priority list of any great recording studio.
