You wouldn’t believe how hard it can be to find a 26″ solid core door! Maybe that’s why the closet in my home office didn’t have one when we moved in. I have a goofy old house.

So, I got the door on, with a lot of “customizing” which is a diplomatic way to say measure, shave, sand, swear, measure again, shave some more, swear some more, and so on. Two layers of moving blankets covering the doorway on the inside, and a bunch of spiffy looking foam, and this sucker gets a little warm in the summer, but it is vewwy quiet.

Right now, I am using an AT 4040 condenser mic, a dbx286s into a Focusrite 2i2, and into my laptop which sits on a shelf below to mitigate any fan noise. I had some annoying hums and struggled with my noisefloor until I added a Furman M-8×2 power conditioner to my rack.

All of my recordings backup to a network drive, and I have a desktop workstation where I do all of my editing
