The practicalities are that it is definitly feasible. It requires money time and careful planning. The neoprene world is surprisingly resistent to giving out qoutes for abnormaly large quantities of the stuff, wood and screws are free and the plasterboard will be a bit pricy. If it is all within fin...

some excellent questions! i don't have the skills to do this by myself, i had envisaged that this would be passed on to someone with more experience once it got passed the estimates stage as all i really know is the theory to makes this happen. stuff like being there to receive a delivery etc is coo...

yeah, you need to cover every surface with insulation, creating a room in a room. sound is class at going through stuff so it has to be complete. Also there will need to be at least a couple of weeks for me and james to test all the equipment and go through the inevitable gremlins. How do people fee...

building

hi, so we've hit our firstproblem, altough it is far from insurmountable. An architect has told us that to make the door we will need a lintel, the wall is load bearing but the style of construction means that all the walls down there are so there won't be any realistic danger working on this. Howev...

multi tool

hi, i really don't think theres anything to worry about. It will be standard practice to have recording sessions finished and cleared up in the time we've booked. I've already said in this thread that i think that the priority is the practice rooms and we'll limit ourselves if there is a high demand...

it

hey, the mics could also be used for live performance in the hall upstairs, though that could be overkill on less rocky gigs! bills told me about there being a lot of sound bleeding into the forest from the cave, i'm not entirely sure how much we'ed have to do to totally sound proof it but there are...

us payin for all this gubbins

hi, me and james are investing £2000 - £2500 to start with, this is just to get the prelimanry recordings while we get used to the equipment, going up to £3500 - £4500 for the finished project. We also use a tower computer which we've already own and wasn't all that cheap! Although there are obvious...

time and space

hi, i've heard it on the grapevine that people are a little worried about how much time this will take away from the cave's primary role, i.e practice space. Have no fear bout it, i think that in all honesty the chances of us getting more than one person to record a month(16-20hrs) is minimal. If ho...

hi guys, can't tell you how glad we are, tickled pink in fact! we off to the bank today and we are attempting to purchase a sweet vintage analogue 24 track mixer to go with the digital one. exciting. The first step is the building work obviously so we'll speak to james' dad and see when hes free. sp...
