Neat to see you guys found my setup already, but I can add a bit to the discussion. I began working standing back in 2000. I'd been working up at Skywalker Sound, had seen Beau Borders' standing workstation, and thought it was an excellent idea. Since my job at LucasArts included both sound design and studio maintenance work, I was constantly sitting down ...

If you want it to be really quiet and wont be accessing the amps after they are installed, your best bet might be to just put them in a seperate room so that it will be acoustically isolated completely. If they are in the same room, you might want a case with a door to reduce the sound the amps produce.

Planning. Draw your design get the measurement. price of wood adds up fast, especially when you buy extra. it shouldnt cost more then about 300-400 for the wood for an 8foot by 2 foot pit. not including the tiles, terrain, and whatever else you want to put in the pit. also a good idea to make it in sections when you can lift a door to get to a tile, ...

This might be overkill, but you can use the same security cables you'd use with a laptop or anything with the Kensington security slots, but instead of relying on the slots, you'd install the same fastener points on the speakers as you will to the desk. Targus Security Plates I'm sure there are other options, and ones that may involve either stronger ...

I would approach this from the perspective of having a rigid coupling between the seat, the drummer and the entire kit. Consequently, I think you would need a "floating" floor setup that can be isolated from the building using some sort of spring/dampening structure. I have not seen the 'tennis-ball' platform other than in this video ...

A mixer, also known as sound mixer or [mixing-]console is a device that takes multiple analogue† signals (often: a lot of microphones plus some line signals, but it can really be anything), and combines them into a single analogue signal. It comes with a couple of dials where you can set how loud each channel is, and at least a simple tone control for ...

Don't put equipment that makes noise in the room that you are sampling audio from. There shouldn't be anything at all in the room. Preferably even the ventilation should be independent so you can shut it down during recording. (I've often seen where they just put an A/C unit in a window and block off all the other vents.) That's always going to get you ...

How about having it replaced with an infrared motion detector? Otherwise, high frequencies can be reflected with dense material, so if you have a closed wooden box (mdf is very dense) that you can put up around the detector, the sound will stay trapped inside and bounce around without coming out. Having some kind of rubber seal between the box and the ...
