shows us how to construct, design and/or treat a sound mixing/listening room effectively. I’m only linking to a few of the videos but to see more in-depth tutorials (there’s tons more) head over to his Youtube page.
What Is A Good Sounding Room?
In this video, I discuss the impact the room has on what we hear within it. Is it 50%, 60%, 75% of what we hear in the room? Are we hearing room sound or system sound? Can you tell the difference?.
I believe the answer lies closer to 70 % and I list many reasons why I think that to be true. Sound within a room has to have similar properties applied to it as sound outside of the room. Unfortunately, this freedom from room boundaries comes at a high acoustical price. The room is much more critical in the final sound we perceive in a room as any amplifier, speaker, or combination of the two.
How To Soundproof A Basement
n the video I explain what these are, why you have a lot working in your favor by using a basement, and why the ceiling is your main area of focus.
The 3 Acoustical Technologies You Must Have In Your Studio
So today I explain:
1. The 3 step process I use when assessing a new studio design,
2. How to avoid the over absorption “dead room” curse,
3. And the best way to achieve diffusion so you can hear your music like never before.
Top 5 Acoustical Mistakes Most Studios Are Making
In today’s video we are going to cover the 5 Acoustical mistakes most studios are making. They are as follows:
1. Low frequency management,
2. Room set up,
3. Absorption rates and levels,
4. Floor and ceiling,
5. Size and volume.
I go into studios all the time and I am constantly amazed at how many are getting one if not more of these items wrong. It’s better to get these issues correct at the start of a new studio build than it is after. That is not to say that we cannot fix problems but in the long run its cheaper to solve at the start of the design phase than it is at a later stage.
