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.
A diffuser scatters sound arriving from any direction to reduce the problem of direct reflection from the speakers. Diffusers create a more even musical sound without reducing the reverb time significantly like an acoustic panel can. There are two types of diffusers, 2D and 3D. A 2D or two dimensional diffuser scatters the reflections in the same single plane that they are received. A 3D or three dimensional diffuser scatters the reflections in random directions at random times. The 3D diffuser is better at scattering the reflections, but it's more difficult to build.
So it's more expensive as a result. While diffusers can be used anywhere in the room that doesn't already have an acoustic panel. A common strategy that's used by many commercial studios is to use a diffuser on the rear wall. That being said, many room designers feel that the rear wall should be absorptive, especially if the room is small. That's what you should try first, if you have any doubts about which to use.
