Learn how to set up and tweak the sound of your music studio. From basements and garages to standalone buildings, all music studios can benefit from the techniques shown in this course. Music engineer and industry insider Bobby Owsinski strips away the mystery behind a great-sounding space and introduces some acoustic principles and hands-on techniques for getting the best sound from your studio for the least cost and effort. Learn isolation techniques and acoustic control methods, plus practical, step-by-step instructions for building your own acoustic panels, bass traps, and diffusers. Bobby also shows you how to determine the best listening position in your room and create a reflection-free zone—the key to getting great audio.
Before you can determine where to place the acoustic panels you have to determine how many of them you need. Ideally you'd like to cover about 50% of the untreated wall space outside the RFZ with sound panels. This can drop to 40% if it makes your material buying easier. Like if it's the difference between buying two or three packages of seven or three for example. That said don't go any lower than 40% coverage of the room. You should still be prepared to add more panels if you still don't feel the room sounds the way you'd like with the initial amount of coverage.
Another way is to figure one panel for every four foot of wall length. In a very small room of a thousand cubic feet or less, you can't really have too much coverage, so the more, the merrier. Panels should be distributed evenly around the room, with the opposite wall offset so, the center of the panel is aimed at the space between the opposite panel. This prevents any possibility of flutter echo between parallel walls.
