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 window doesn't pose much of a problem if it's on the front wall, since the speakers are pointed in the opposite direction. That said, there may be complications if it's located in other sections of the room. First of all, if the window is in the RFZ, your only choice is to acoustically treat it, otherwise you'll no longer have a reflection free zone. If that's the case, you have a number of options. You can place a piece of 703, or Rockwell over the window. Then cover that with a heavy drape. You can place an acoustic panel over the window with another piece of 703, or Rockwell behind the panel, or you can place a diffuser over it.
You probably want to cover the outside of the window with a pane of quarter inch to half inch Plexiglas, tightly attached to weather stripping on all sides to increase the isolation as well. Of course the easiest way to increase the isolation and eliminate any leakages by totally plugging the window. But the trend in studios these days is for lots of natural light. If isolation is still a problem, add another pane of plexiglass to the inside of the window frame as well.
