Home recording studio with recording booths

Posted on

Member Since: Apr 22, 2004

I was wondering about wiring up the booths from the 'engineering'/'recording' room. At the moment we are thinking about putting the mics and cans in the booths. But do you think we should go through the ceiling or through the walls? Or does it matter too much? Is there a better way? Pitfalls to consider?

I also want to thank you all for your help earlier this year.

Kind regards,

If you go thru the walls, you can use something like this: www.zzounds.com...item--PRCWP1013

I guess you can use them through the ceiling too, but it'd be a bit hard to reach.

It looks like Pro Co makes all sorts of 1/4" and XLR wall plates. Never used them, myself, so I'm not sure of the details of using them, or any potential pitfalls. You could just probably seal the inner workings with that "Good Stuff" insulating foam that you'd use to insulate electrical switches/outlets on exterior walls of your home.

Personally, I would just get a stage snake snake and run from room to room myself...

I agree with the stage snake, that's what im building my studio with. the wall adapter that
tadpui suggested isnt bad but you'll only get 2 channels with it. I know they come in more than that but its a lot of work to put em in. and with the snake you only have to drill one hole lol.

You can make (or buy) a wall plate with as many or as few jacks as you want...
