What had served as a catch-all storage room in my basement has been transformed into a home studio.

One day I was standing in the doorway of the room daydreaming about what I could do with the space. Inspired by a sheet of glass leaning against the wall, I took some basic measurements and sketched out a rough blueprint for the counters and recording booth.

The window of the recording booth is the playfield glass from an old pinball machine. It’s tempered, so it’s not likely the original from the 1940’s or 50’s era amusement.

What’s left to do is soundproofing and closing up the outside walls of the booth.

I don’t yet have much experience.

What I do have is some quality hardware and software for a home studio setup.

I am excited to learn how to use that hardware and software to create.

I imagine I’ll enlist the help of musically inclined friends, family, and local musicians to bring it all together. It helps that two of my brothers play the drums and my son plays trumpet, saxophone, and piano. As I simply cannot sing, I may either have to look for (a) vocalist(s) to convey my words with meaning, or cross my fingers and hope for the best with pitch correction tools.

Since my start, I have found myself occasionally recorded some local artist friends to get practice with the hardware and post processing. I have also put together some tracks of questionable quality.
