Vocal Processing

A fellow Radio person Shane asked us to do a show on Vocal Processing.  Dale talks about what he does for his Vocal Processing/Audio in the latest BlissRadioShow!

Working with Powdered Chalk - Part One

 Hello!  Jennifer here!  I've had a couple of email questions regarding several different topics and one of them was Powdered Chalk.  It was an online friend of mine that asked who is a follower of my Craft Blog - Blissful Place.  I recently started up with a new Design Team.  The company names and websites are...

Here is my very first project for the team!

 After looking at my blog post from the other day a friend of mine wanted me to elaborate on Powdered Chalk as a whole.  Well, it's a VERY versatile product so I cannot explain it in one post.  I figured it would be easier to show you what I did in this first project and list more as I proceed with the team!  I used the powdered chalk on the strips of paper above and to the right of the SAIL AWAY WITH ME Embellishment.  I did direct to paper with a brush and/or Q-Tip.  As you can see I used TWO different powdered chalks in this project but there are TONS to choose from...

Here are a few more colors and what the powdered chalks look like in their case.  I really LOVE this product!  Again, they are VERY versatile and I have many projects on deck to show you.  I will be cross promoting any techniques that I have learned and attempted here and on my main crafting blog.

Take a look at the two sites above!  PLUS you can enjoy FREE SHIPPING for the rest of THIS MONTH!

Thanks for reading!

Studio Treatments

Thanks for logging on!  Welcome to the Bliss Radio Show!

Jennifer and I really appreciate the good response and encouragement as we work to add content to the site.

We certainly aren’t “experts” on anything, but hopefully, this site can be of some value to you.

Many questions have been emailed to us.  We’ll do our best to answer based on our experiences.

This week, I was asked about how I “soundproofed” my studio.

I’ll start by saying that my recording room is definitely not soundproof.  In truth, it’s nearly impossible to make that happen in any home studio.  My room is “treated” – and is still a work in progress.

The studio is 9’ x 12’ x 7’ 6” – all drywall with two windows…previously a small spare bedroom.  It is located on the second floor of our home.  Not the best scenario – but it’s what we had available.

My brother Mike, Jennifer, and I completely gutted the room, repainted and laid new carpeting.  We weatherproofed the windows and carpeted them over and hung thick curtains.  We moved in all of the equipment and set it up.  Everything looked great!  

The room sounded terrible!  I knew that this would be the case, so we didn’t panic.

Room reflection and bass reflex were the issues I had to take care of before I could start using the studio.

Based on budget, I decided to make use of some inexpensive, readily available products to help tackle the problem.  I also wanted to do my best to keep the room looking nice – without gluing a bunch of foam on the walls.

I started with placing some acoustical foam behind the curtains to help absorb sound.  Then I went to a local discount store and found four barrel pillows to place in the corners at the ceiling.  I also bought some thick wedge pillows to put in the bottom corners.

I purchased some kitchen rug sets that were on sale and placed them on the walls to break up the drywall.  This worked out nice because it helped make the room sound better and wound up looking pretty cool, too.

Mike and I also built a cloud for the ceiling out of 2 x 2’s and a cheap comforter.  We suspended the panels and cut up as much foam as we could to use between the cloud and the ceiling.

Treating the studio cost less than $200 and was worth every penny.

The room reflections and bass reflex have been drastically reduced – almost eliminated.

As I mentioned earlier, it’s still a work in progress.  I’ll probably continue to experiment to see if the room can be made even better.

I hope that you found this information interesting and it encourages you to pursue building your own home recording studio.
