What should you know about setting up your recording space? I was asked this question recently in an interview with Anthony Ceseri, the founder of Success for Your Songs. In this clip I talk about the differences between your mixing space vs your tracking space.

Very helpful info.
Thanks for the info and the time to make the video.
back in the early 90s i had a recording space that was pretty good sized. unfortunately i didnt know much about acoustic values i was dealing with. the room ended up being so taotally dead of any type of size value for recording with my old fostec. now im just in a corner in my living room, but a fairly decent supply of effects available to me. how i wish i had that room again.
Recordings don’t have be made in a completely dead room.
If you find a place where the instrument or vocal sounds naturally great, maybe a great reverb space or a slapback delay, record it there! It’s a more genuine sound and for those of us with simple recording equipment it’s easy to do. :)
Correct. I’d also say that going after a completely dry room for the sake of dry room and trying to control say early reflections from a 7 1/2 foot ceiling are two different things. In a very small space, I find a dryer sound is more usable to me than an echoed tone catching early reflections. This depends on the mic, the recording chain, the dynamics of the vocals though as well. Thanks for the comment. ;)
