I can't believe no one has posted this one yet...

My favorite room from videos I have heard. Does your room work with non horn speakers?

Hi Tang,

Thank you (as always) for the kind words...


When my wife and I bought our current home in 2013, I started Building the studio listening room that you see/hear in the videos. The studio is separate from the main house. I’ve Only owned the Avantgarde Duo’s since we’ve been here so no compares with conventional box speakers. The room is purpose built though, so I’m pretty sure most any type of speaker within reason would work. I hired an acoustical engineer to help with the design. We focused a lot of attention on diffusion rather than absorption. It sounds really nice when I record live music too.

Though neither is very well-engineered, both belong here.

How loud do you guys record at?

Everything I try to capture ends up being really quiet.

Good question. I was wondering that too.... most of what I am recording is at my normal listening levels. I just go with what sounds good to my ears for that particular cut. Some of the rock drum tracks I was listening to were turned up pretty loud on this end.... I mean, it’s rock and roll after all!

I could mention this was my son's CD 9 years ago when he was 11, but why? It's my CD now. :)

I thought it would be fun to do a You Tube video of a You Tube video.

I played it back through the Apogees before I uploaded it and it wasn't too bad. A bit muffled via the camera mic and no doubt the YT compression makes it worse still. But it should sound alright through a decent system.

In the flesh it is good but YT is a comprised source.

Recorded on a OnePlus 6 mobile phone. It's mono.

Ked I didn't use the Rowland. I nicked it's memory stick a while back and had forgotten where it was.

I did a Led Zep too. Will post later.

Awesome ! Keltner rules !:eek::eek::eek:

What is the size of your listening room ?

Yeah it's a great video. Have watched it quite a few times.
I have come to respect Keltner immensely many of my favorite albums by a variety of artists have by closer inspection had Jim Keltner on drums :) Only a few albums have had that special superior sound without Keltner, and they had 2 drummers. The Blade brothers are not bad either ;)

Lombardo is awesome. One of the few unique drummers in metal, one of those you immediately know it's him from the first drum break.

His drumming (and drum sound) on Slayer's "Seasons in abyss" is just amazing.
