Recording at home, recording in the studio

I think it basically comes down to the $570 Sequis Motherload Elemental or a DIY guitar cabinet isolation box. I estimate the cost of materials on that DIY box at about $250. Plus labor. Plus a major-league pain in the tuchus.

Plus it would be large. Just a coffin for a speaker cabinet. And although I have two cabinets which each hold a single 12" (Celestion Alnico Blues, of course) they would just be annoyingly big. I might be better off putting a speaker in a closet.

I'm not entirely pleased by my wiring options at the new studio. I suspect I will end up with three microphone cables going into the booth. Two of those will feed a Neve and one will feed the M-Audio. I dunno. There may be an analog extension required. And ice cream.
