My horror studio measurements

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...

Hi, there! Wish you all are safe at this times. I've made some REW measurements in my home studio and at my little to nothing knowledge I think that are horrible for mixing purposes. I appreciate any help. Best regards.

Hi Ferzeleid. Please do post your REW measurements! And also post some more information about your studio, including the dimensions, a diagram of the layout of your speakers and mix position, any existing treatment, and some photos.

Somewhere on this forum Soundman2020 has posted how to measure with REW. I looked in the Reference Area but cannot see it. Once you are sure you are measuring correctly, export your measurements into a .mdat file and post it here so that those who can understand .mdat files (unfortunately that does not yet include me) can comment and make suggestions.

Greetings Ferzeleid,

I posted the link because Starlight had mentioned it.

No worries on the English-language front. Apologies not needed.

All the best,

Paul

Here's the more up-to-date version, that reflects some big changes in the REW interface:



A lot has changed in newer versions of REW, since the original post, so I'm keeping this one up to date here. That's the one you should be using, and feel free to pass it along to others! I'm also working on writing an accompanying article on how to interpret the results, so stay tuned for that! (Probably in a couple of weeks).

Great! I downloaded the REW file, and I'll take a look at that as soon as I can. One thing I did notice from your rough sketch, is that the room is nearly square, so there are likely some room modes that coincide with each other, or nearly coincide. Also, the ceiling is very low, and the room is rather small... It's going to need quite a bit of treatment!

Follow up: I just took a quick look at the REW data, and it seems you had the levels too high. Around 95 dB, and there is some distortion in the lower frequencies, probably from clipping. Are you sure you had your sound level meter set to "C" weighting when you did the calibration? If you accidentally had it set on "A", then that could explain the difference.

So please do the calibration again, and make sure you are getting levels around 86 dBC when you have both speakers on. Do another test like that, and post it here.
