Like I mentioned in some earlier posts, my studio is located in a trailer. The trailer is a 1950's model (read: old, but solid) and measures 10x50... anyway. Because of the rental agreement, I am not allowed to do major work on the trailer, which would include drop ceilings, new walls, gun turrets, clock towers, or an extensive system of underground tunnels in which I can breed an unholy race of chinchillas trained to seek out and devour Hanson kids until none remain.
My main problem (aside from the lack of elevated shooting positions) is that I have no clue how to make CHEAP, YET MEANINGFUL changes that would improve my acoustics. So far, I have gotten the idea to drape the windows with some heavy blankets, as well as put string from wall to wall so that blankets can hang on it, creating movable baffles.
Mostly, I use the large front room, which is about 20 feet long, by 10 feet wide. At the far end, the wall begins up at a slope, so it is not perpendicular with the floor. It then moves straight up, but joins the ceiling in a curve. The walls and ceiling have no 90 degree angle, they are sort of rounded together. They are made of firm and shiny wood of a trailer variety. Half of the room is carpet, half is vinyl floor. I record guitars, drums, vocals, insane noises you never heard before... you name it. Normally, though, my volume is not very high.
What do you think I could do, and what are cheap ways to do it?
