Proper acoustic treatment can transform a muddy sounding room with poor midrange definition and erratic bass response into a room with clear, tight sound.
There are generally a few similar goals for acoustic treatment in recording and mixing rooms:
A mixture of absorption panels, corner traps or bass traps, and diffusers generally provides the best overall results.
Placing 2" thick or 4" thick Acoustic Panels at key reflection points with help reduce strong wall reflections.
Using Corner Bass Traps will help reduce the low frequency reverb time, and flatten the frequency response in the bass range.Acoustic Foam Corner Bass Traps are an affordable option for low frequency control.
Alternatively, open back 4” Bass Traps will also absorb low-frequencies. These traps are usually mounted slightly off of a flat wall or they are mounted to straddle a corner. Both our Corner Bass Traps and Open Back 4" Bass traps are available in either Full Range absorption or Low Range absorption.
Studio Stackers, our portable go-between panels, offer an easy solution to Bass Trapping. This unique gobo offers exceptional sound control by absorbing stray sound and excessive bass waves.
Adding diffusers to your room will help reduce comb filtering and flutter echoes. Diffusers are most commonly used on the rear wall behind the listening position, but they can also be used at first reflection points on the walls or ceiling.
They look great in my AudioNirvana room, and if I can install them, just about anyone can!
