Which room is best for your studio? (Poll)

Which room is best for your studio?

Living Room - (current location)
convenient connection to computer which is used for capturing video/audio from synth gear, but also for TV and entertainment

Guest Bedroom/Office - (no AC yet)
this room is basically a mess of storage now.

What do you think about the importance of isolating your gear pile to a more private room instead of keeping it in your main public space?

If the living room is an option, I'd run that shit.

Well, it would depend on how much stuff I had. Wouldn't want just anyone getting ideas and stuff.

Isolated room for working on music and living room for capturing ambience, if that makes sense.

For working, definitely an extra room, preferably with one of those red "Achtung Aufnahme" signs. I do like putting a smaller setup in the living room and jamming out with my daughter on the Cocoquantus, so that has its ups, too.

My studio has to be private and secluded, cozy. I live on my own, so I can have it anywhere, I've tried it in my living room, it's a large space, but I find it really cold and uninspiring, instead I have my stuff in my bedroom, it's like a cockpit, everything within reach, really intimate and cozy atmosphere. I've done all my music in there, there is a good vibe, so I'm staying put.

I work from home so need spare room for office and storage.
Main kit is stacked on and around a decrepit piano in the dining room with various toys around the house.
Used to have a dedicated studio/cupboard ten minutes walk away until all the rents went up...
A friend of mine built a big shed/chalet type studio at the end of his garden which is lovely!
I'm looking to move out of town in the next five years - A tree house/studio would be the business!!

For the last six years we've lived in a loft and I've really enjoyed having my modular corner. Being able to play and tweak stuff and then chill on the couch across the room and listen. Or just wander anywhere and do stuff while still hearing your patch.

We're moving soon to a two bedroom apartment and the master bedroom is becoming the studio. It's going to be different but I'm looking forward to having the separation because sometimes it's hard sharing just one space.

Big plus is there is a balcony so I'll probably chill out there and listen to patches.

Since I live in a one-bedroom apartment right now.... Living room, as it's where EVERYTHING even remotely techy goes, but also because the bedroom doubles as the storage area for boxes and whatnot.

If I had a proper house? Odds are dedicated room with a few circuits to call it's own, but it would also double as my computer benching/overclocking room.
