Home Recording - Sound Proofing

This would be a first step in gaining a quiet control room. Remember good sound isolation from the studio to the control room is paramount.

ISP Speaker Upgrade Complete

We replaced the RCF speakers with the ISP HDM112. The difference was amazing. The thing that I notice about these speakers is their ability to project sound and their clarity.
