Where should it be?

Somewhere that you can get decent acoustics and make sure that it's soundproofed otherwise you could pick up random sounds in the background. This all is reletive depending upon your recording method etc...

I wouldn't pick any of those locations. If I had to though the abandoned building maybe? depends on what it's like, or the garage, but be sure to check the sound bouncing off the ground/walls maybe.

depends, if its like an abandonded warehouse that would be horrible to record in.

unless you were recording a hip hop cd. you couldn't tell the difference.

Definitely not the garage - we have band practices in my garage and the acoustics are terrible.

Well in this topic it's referring to a abandoned barn in a fieild. I don't know but my impressions is something that dampens the music somewhat, but doesn't really produce much echo.

The aim of the poll was to see what others think. My vote was the dirt track, more open space, no residents nearby to complain. the barn, just for the hell of it. Garage, c'mon, i just had to put that one in.

So is this dirt track an open space? does it have noisy things passing by?

Probably the garage would be best. The barn might have better acoustics, but it'd be a LOT easier to soundproof a garage. And when it comes to soundproofing vs. acoustics, soundproofing wins. You can always simulate better acoustics with post-production, it's a lot harder to get planes and cars out of the background noise.

I think i know 'unsanctioned', and i think i know where he's talking about.
if so, yes, its an open space, a good distance from the highway, plenty of trees.
