Hey people! As always, sorry about my clumsy English.
I recently moved to a new appartment and I’m using one of the rooms as studio. I’m by no means proficient in acoustics, but the size of the space is basically a receipe for disaster: 2,8m x 2,8m x 2,6m. An almost perfect damn cube!
So far I’m treating it with 4 large rockwool panels (2 on the wall opposite to the monitors and 2 on the ceiling slightly angled), and 3’’ Sonex panels behind the speakers and on the side walls. This kind of tamed the midrange and high frequency stuff but the lows are just a freaking nightmare. 75Hz and 150Hz are mayhem (uneven, boosted, muddy, resonant) while other ranges seem to be cancelling out, so I totally depend on my good ol’ pair of DT-770 to finalize my mixes. That, as you can imagine, is quite tiring after a few hours.
I’ve been reading a lot about rockwool corner bass traps, and the Auralex LENRD foam traps. My plan, so far, was to combine both approaches: vertical rockwool wedge panels (DIY) to break the corners and Auralex in the walls-ceiling angles. I’m don’t pretend to achieve a properly treated and built studio sound, but I’m really crossing fingers for that to improve the situation a bit.
All of the above leads to this: have any of you Junglers been through a similar scenario? Any tips to tame the lows and low-end beast? Right now is just a freaking pain the the arse to mix basses and kicks, but also everything else.
Thanks in advance!
