Which room to choose?

All about acoustics. This is your new home if you already have a studio or other acoustic space, but it isn't working out for you, sounds bad, and you need to fix it...

Which room is better?

Vaulted Ceiling Room

Which room to choose?

Hi. So sorry to hear about John. Glad to see Soundman2020 has a forum though. He helped me out a few years ago.

I'm moving my studio into a house and I have two room available to me for my new studio. Neither are very good. One is a typical square bedroom, but decent size, 14'x~13'x~9'. The other is a larger bedroom with more square feet and cubic feed due to a vaulted ceiling but a really weird geometry.

Both rooms are carpeted and I don't have funds to change it so I was thinking to layout qty 3 4'x8'x3/4" pieces of MDF and covering that with a 8'x12' piece of vinyl floor remnant.

I have some acoustic treatments in my current room I'll move with but for the most part it is lots of traps with OC703.[img][img][/img][/img]

I'm assuming the room with the vaulted ceiling/bigger volume is better. Is this correct? Which room would be better?

Obviously I need to measure the rooms but I can't do that till everything arrives and at that point I'll have a space crunch...

Hello Krakadon and welcome.

Symmetry from the listening position forward is important in a control room so I suggest using your smaller room as the control room and the larger room as the live room, where the room's shape will give a palette of acoustic opportunities because symmetry in a live room is not a requirement.
