How about this for your music studio? Let’s say you have a small house but enough room for one of these Archipods in your backyard? I’m not sure if they can make a soundproof version or how the round walls would effect acoustics. About $40,000.
“‘The Pod’ is an insulated sphere of approx. 3m in diameter. Constructed predominantly from timber, the world’s most replenishable construction material, insulated to a standard exceeding that of current Building Regulations. The structure is prefabricated in sections small enough to be carried through a house. So no matter where you live, we’ll be able to get the ‘Pod’ onto your site. Because of its unique shape and the generous natural light from the roof dome, the ‘Pod’ actually looks bigger on the inside than the outside.” – archipod.com

Well here’s your chance to own the old house of legendary synthesizer man Vince Clarke. Live in the house that housed the man behind early Depeche Mode, Yaz and Erasure. It’s yours for 1,995,000 GBP.
“Clarke decided he couldn’t walk away from love, so he moved to Maine, got married and started a new life.” – Synthtopia

As promised I took the Waves GTR Ground unit that was sent to me over to an actual guitarist’s studio. Mark Ephraim is one of the best musician/producers I know. His music has “that sound” you want from rock and roll. He has a wide range going from retro all the way to commercial pop. Take a look and listen and some of Mark’s projects: markephraim.com
I took a nice set of photos of some of Mark’s amazing gear including stuff from API, ARP, Ibanez, Adam, Akai, Roland, MXR, etc… He rides the good balance of outboard gear and Pro-Tools ITB goodies. Check out the full set on flickr: click here

Here’s a great video visit to Daptone Records studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Co-founders Neal Sugarman and Gabriel Roth show you around their music making fun house. If you ever wished you could find new soul records produced the way they used to be this is the place to check.
Everything at Daptone is analog except their one single digital piece: a CD player! Incredibly they even edit without computers using good old fashion razor blades and tape. I really like how they floated a floor for a sound proof room using tires and used clothes.

What’s my secret to making music? I let my Gummi Bear friends do it for me! Normally they are camera shy but today they let me take photos of them recording a song. There are 10 photos and captions in total so be sure to click “Continue…” to see them all!
Green and Red need some inspiration before they go back to making music so they lie down for a bit on a Roland SH3 synthesizer keyboard and stare at the studio’s acoustic cloud.
Yellow and Red team up and jam on a Vermona DRM1 MKIII drum machine. Yellow changes the resonance on the snare while Red messes with the highpass filter on the lazer zap.
