Planning to do some home recordings with my band but wanted some advice on room acoustics. I'm not planning to spend a lot of money. Drums will be an electric kit, so that's not an issue, but wondering what to do about the amps and vocals? Bass will be DI. For the guitars, I was thinking of getting a small board lined with acoustic foam and then sandwich the mic between the cab and that. Wondering if it's worth then putting a duvet round the sides to further insulate? What do you guys reckon?
For the vocals, I'm not so sure. I was considering getting enough acoustic foam to cover a corner of a room for the singer to stand in. In theory, that should be ok as long as the sections are wide enough (will be recording using a mic with a cardroid polar pattern), but was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for alternative recording techniques?
