Drum room/studio basement build

That is very classy looking and all of us who are way behind you in progress are both pleased and jealous you have got this far. I hope the tests show that the room does indeed sound as good as it looks.

3330 ... the walls (which I’ll temporarily be attaching to the exterior ceiling joists until the inside room joists are fitted). I had to do that with the stud framework otherwise it would not have stood up on its own. It was only after the insulation and a layer of OSB went up that we could connec...

Private studio in Slovakia

Sorry for a long post but it mostly covers one job that has taken me 6 weeks. Below the studio ceiling will hang a cloud towards the front part of the room, 2 space couplers beneath the cloud and 7 hexagons towards the rear of the room. The space couplers will be the most challenging from a woodwork...

Home recording studio in the attic.

The language of the geography of a room is this: the wall you are looking at, the one where your monitors are, is called the front wall. The rear or back wall is the one behind you, which will be covered by a large and deep bass trap.

3312 From memory, diffusion needs at least 10 feet distance to start being effective. I'd personally treat it like a first reflection point. The theory as I remember reading it is that you do not want any sound other than the original, direct signal returning to the listening position any earlier t...

Gareth, maybe your local tool hire place has wall jacks. I remember following Ryan's studio build over on Gearslutz. Ryan made inside out walls and used two wall jacks per wall to lift them into place. Some links for you: New commercial build in Denver - see especially replies 32 and 36. The latter ...

Hello from Oklahoma

Welcome, Justice.

I really hope this year is kinder to you and that you can get your teeth into the studio builds, including one or more than we can get to see.

By the way, is your remote truck The Armadillo? That is really different to what we see on the forum!

It is helpful, terminator1987. Bert is one of the professionals and so his reply was not in doubt but you have helpfully explained it in more detail. Thank you.

LP0643co2.jpg I bought this one last year from Duomo in Droitwich, Worcestershire. I explained my situation (not a classroom, laboratory, etc.) and had this one suggested. I haven't got far enough with my studio build to permanently install it yet but I stuck a plug on it and tested at home and in ...

3265 I ... will be making a circular saw guide based on Starlight's recipe. The principle works; my first attempt has a flaw: I have discovered that I chose too small a piece of aluminium track. It bows by about 1.5mm. Mine is 8 x 10mm track, the smallest. Next time I would buy a larger size and ch...

Small control room design mk2

3255 My understanding is that diffusion doesn't work properly unless the room is above a certain size, because in a smaller room there isn't enough of a time gap between direct sound and reflected sound for the ears/brain to perceive the difference. 20ms is often said to be the minimal time gap fro...

Small control room design mk2

It strikes me as slightly odd. The reason the wings would be added, as Gareth shows in the 2nd image in his post above, is to avoid reflections bounding off the side walls to the listening position. To then suggest that adding a real wall diffuser so that the refelctions can reach the listening posi...
