By the end of the summer, I should be moving most of my "studio" out of my house and into a place not in my house that I can actually call a studio. Yay! progress. I plan on making one of the offices where I am going into an edit/mix room. I can not afford the "nicer" studio furniture and I know I can build something just as good or better. The desk is not the problem.
What I am wondering if anyone had any ideas on an iso box for my computer and all the random hard drives and nonsense that will be hooked to it causing tons of noise. I know I can build a box and line it with sound proofing things, but I am wondering about ventilation and stuff of that sort. The idea of having the computer in a separate room has crossed my mind, but I just am not sure if technically all the cabling for all the peripherals that I will need on the desk can run that length. It must be possible because the dub stages I have been to have their monitors/keyboards/mouse with them in the room and computer in another room.
Anyone have any tips, leads, ideas on this? I am going to continue research on maximum cable length and things for usb, firewire, video etc.
