Inside the voXager study-o

Friends and foes! Now that the summer slump is finally over, we’re ready to pick up the pieces and continue with voXager from where we left off a while ago. Right? Right!

Lately, I’ve been busy turning my study into a little project studio. I optimized one corner of the room for vocal recordings by gluing pyramid foam to walls and ceiling, and also put long Ikea curtains up the remaining walls to dampen reflections. Of course, the acoustics are still not holding up to professional standards, especially since the recording computer is not separated from the microphone (although the iMac is very silent compared to most other machines). Tentative results of vocal recordings are, however, very encouraging.

Following, I’d like to show you a few pictures of how it looks inside the, well, I’d like to call it the voXager study. “Study” as opposed to “studio” — I know I’m insane, but my insanity does not include delusions of grandeur… yet 🙂

Okay, here goes. Click to enlarge:

What’s more? Well, right now, I’m doing my best to prepare very clean and accurate audio projects of voXager’s first eight songs. Sven has re-recorded guitars for the first five songs already, and sometime early next year we’re going to re-do the vocals here at the voXager study in a better quality. I hope we’ve got something to show for by february.

Meanwhile, I’ll remain
