Famous Recording Studios

For those who prefer to keep it professional there are many recording studio options. However, there are just a few which can be considered legendary within the music industry.

    Located in the heart of Hollywood, Capitol Studio has been frequented by the likes of Tina Turner, Nat king Cole and Frank Sinatra. The space is unique because it offers an echo chamber made from reinforced concrete.

    Perhaps most famous for that Beatles album, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Take That and Michael Jackson have all also recorded at Abbey Road in London. The building is now Grade II listed and still has accommodation attached where stars used to stay when recording.

    The place where ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust’ was recorded, in 2017 a blue plaque was installed to recognise the David Bowie albums recorded there and Tridents rightful place in music history.

Creating Your Studio: Nine Steps to DIY Recording Studios

Step 1: When creating an at home recording studio, you must first choose where you want the studio to be located. More than one room is ideal, but not essential and it is always best to pick a bigger space than you think you’ll need.

Step 2: Next, soundproof the space and use acoustic treatments to add density to the walls and reduce outside noise getting in. This will also help keep your neighbours happy as it will stop the noise getting out!

Step 3: Elevated floors will also reduce vibrations from the space below and can help stop any movements being picked up on your recordings. Spend some budget on that to keep your recording studio top notch.

Step 4: Technology can be helpful, but when you are just starting out you will only need the computer you already have. Update your computer once you know at home recording is right for you and buy the highest speed computer you can afford.

Step 5: DAW software allows you to record, edit and mix music. You’ll need this software to complete any recording and you’ll need an audio interface to connect your computer to the rest of your gear.

Step 6: Long XLR cables will connect your monitors and various equipment, we recommend one long cable for the mic and two shorter cables for monitors.

Step 7: Pop filters can create a softer sound and are essential for vocalists. Don’t ever think about not having it around.

Step 8: Microphones and stands are also important, though for starting out if you are a solo artist just one microphone will be enough. A large diaphragm condenser vocal mic is a great place to start.

Step 9: Two pairs of headphones will be important for checking your sound quality. The first pair should be noise cancelling while the better will have better sound quality.

These nine steps should get you started on the right path, however, you could also study the infograph below to have an indepth know-how of how to setup DIY recording studio from scratch.
