    when I was asking similar questions, same was said to me. basically put, you have to be realistic. this is where you live, where you spend your time. you need to feel at ease and comfortable. then worry about the sound. If the space isn't inviting and pleasant to be in, then you won't be enticed to stay in it for any length of time and be more likely to rush or even not do anything in it.

    Yup.
    Everything in it's place and a place for everything.
    Decor becomes part of the overall acoustic "treatment".

    So, let me ask this. Can I have a good enough sound in this room for production and releasing my albums? and if so, how?
    This is important to me.

    I've produced in a room without much treatment before and released albums, but thereafter I built my own studio in 2 different places where I lived.

    Otherwise, I can move my bedroom into this room, and my studio / chill space into my bedroom. The bedroom has a more standard and simple room and a studio will be a lot easier. However,
    I'm sacrificing this being a really nice lounge space, and maybe not an A bedroom (although I will have to just adapt)

    Many thanks man.

    I did intend to get a smaller desk and monitor stands (or maybe stands not necessary), right now its just planning my room at stage 1.

    Could you also answer my latest post man? Thanks so much for this. Keen to get your opinion.

    +1 to moving the monitors.
    Right now if you look over the top of the speakers, you see windows. Move them out wider so you see the room corners.

    If you and the two speakers make a triangle, you'd want to be the right angle in it.

    Try to find some boxes or stands or something and get the speakers up a foot or more : Whatever your comfortable sitting ear-height is.
    Thanks pal. Think the windows being exposed is fine? Its important to me to have a production friendly home studio space. To make and release my next albums.
    Could you share your thoughts on my last reply ?

    Keen to get this sorted and making music properly again Withdrawal is real after the past 2year hiatus.

    This is important to me.
    Pretty much everything can always be better but the short answer is yes.
    For me, in a home environment, as long as the speakers are ear height and pointing the right direction, and first reflection points up and sideways are covered,
    that's most of the work done.
    If that's a new term to you, those are the points where you'd be able to see the monitors if you hung a mirror.

    You could list hundreds of ways to improve from there but you have to balance cost and practicality against results.

    Getting to know your room and monitors, whether perfect or not, is very important too.
    Spend time listening to commercial material that you're very familiar with, and do it in the mixing/listening position.

    Hmm are you sure? I feel my music got a lot clearer and better after I worked in a treated studio. What about other room issues?

    Just for some more context and info - Here are my studios that I built (I built the panels too).
    Did reflection points / mirror trick etc and sorted out problems. I studied and got info on how to do all that years ago.

    First studio
    12309781_10153038515542924_4670389418520631741_o-jpg12304082_10153038539722924_8756121116497752863_o-jpg10838168_10152601921097924_3113608477858097424_o-jpg

    Second (most recent and last before my hiatus)

    Note: I have all the panels in storage of which Im probably going to use and want to install in this new studio. Or may get some from retail.

    If you've got more panels then, by all means, put them up. The more the merrier.

    I'm losing track of what the question is. Seems you have experience with fairly well treated rooms and presumably you've mixed in regular un treated rooms?
    You must have your own idea of where the line is?
    With first reflection points done I reckon you could get to know the room/speakers and make some good music.
    If you have additional panels, or corner traps, then that's even better.
