Like many people, setting aside a room to become a “Home Studio” inevitably involves a ton of compromises. These are usually because the room was never intended to be used as a Studio. It won’t have perfect acoustics, it won’t be the right shape, etc etc. So how do you address these problems? Studying acoustics can set us on the way to improving how the room performs.
What are the typical problems?
- Excessive bass and low frequency responses
- Constraints on speaker/monitor positions
- Acoustic reflections from walls, floor, ceiling
