I'm moving my studio from a room that has carpet to a larger room with tiles. I've researched online and there does not seem to be any flooring that is favored, so I wanted to get some opinions for my particular case.
I predominantly record acoustic instruments, such as acoustic guitar, cello, and voice. I utilize a focusrite audio interface and record vocals and some instruments with a condenser mic, and typically record instruments with 2 cardoid shotgun mics.
Am I going to have a loss in quality or change of sound by going from a carpet floor to a tile floor? Would adding a large rug near where I place the mics help in any way? Is there a time when tile floor may be favorable for a recording studio?
