    Can musicians build a pro quality studio?

    Yes they can

    I wanted to share some studio building pictures with you and show that even group of composers and musicians can build studio from scratch.

    We got one empty basement during February and then we started planning the studio. Now our premises are near completion. Because we used little to no professional help at all, building has taken a long time. Most of us didn't have any knowledge of building but we had to learn by doing.

    So here's some pictures:

    I wish I could show you the latest pictures of our studio because now everything looks more complete. You can see the final pictures when we open our website. I'll inform you when the day comes.

    I hope that you enjoy the pictures and please give us some feedback!

    Best,

    Very nice. It wouldn't be Finnish without all of that wood - and a sauna!

    (I was in Helsinki during the May heat wave. If the weather was always that nice there, I'd move to Finland!)

    Yes sauna is very important thing. It's good to go there after a long day at work.

    Looks great! How does it sound?

    One thing I notice is that your lighting could be improved. If you are using a digital camera, set the white balance before your next set of photos. It's simple. Aim the camera at a white piece of paper in your studio. Go into the menus, find the white balance capture setting and snap a photo. Your following pictures will show your studio in its natural color. (Fluorescents tend to be green. Incandescents tend to be yellow. Sunlight tends to be blue. Our eyes/brain adjust things when we're in the environment, but photos don't.)

    Living in an area where there is little sun for much of the year, you might look into getting some full spectrum lights. With good lighting and your sauna, you may never want to leave!

    All the best,

    It surely sounds good. All mixing and editing rooms have straight response curves and great stereo imaging. It's fun to hear my old projects and compositions in new aspect. It's really great. And live room sounds natural and magnificent too. But on this Friday we'll record first band in our studio so we'll see how does it sound on tape.

    I think my associate have edited those pictures into darker and more mood-like-atmosphere. But we have to see how we edit them when we are putting pictures into our webpage.

    Thanks for your tips and comments!
