    How I Created My Mobile Studio

    IMG_4953tr606

    I made a post a couple of months ago titled I Don’t Want a Traditional Studio Anymore that was about my desire to move away from being physically tied to my home studio space.  I had realized that I would never be able to maximize my creativity as long my creative output was tied to being in my studio.  I don’t resent my studio space–it has allowed me to make a lot of great music–it just doesn’t allow me the flexibility I would like to have in creating music.

    That realization was the catalyst for the mission I have been on for the past two months: to create a mobile studio setup that allows me to create music anywhere I may be.  I am happy to say that I’ve completed that mission. I now have a mobile studio setup that I am very happy with.  In this post, I will detail what I’m using for those that are interested in trying the same thing.

    I Don’t Want A Traditional Studio Anymore

    8600135.87

    There was a time, back when I was living in a small one bedroom apartment, that all I dreamt about was having more space (and time) to do music. Back then all I had was my MPC-2000, an 8-track recorder, a pair of studio monitors, and my record collection.  It wasn’t much but I did a lot with it.  The fact that I had to keep all that stuff in my bedroom meant that there was a limit to the gear and space I could dedicate to my musical endeavors.  I had a decent vinyl collection in my living room, but it wasn’t anything too crazy because the space I was living in didn’t allow it.

    With success came the ability to move into a larger space, which is the house I live in now. I realized that I finally had the room to expand my studio space into what I had always dreamed about, so I did.  About three-quarters of my basement is dedicated to music in some way.  One room in my basement (“the record room”) is dedicated entirely to records and is about 15-feet by 12-feet in size — larger than the entire bedroom I once did ALL of my music in and slept in.  The second room, that I now do all my music in, is at least twice that size.  The only room in my basement that isn’t dedicated to music in some way is my laundry room.
