    If I may? No, bass frequencies are very penetrating. Ever tried getting decent bass in a tent?!

    The bass (that I can hear) seems OK, and I could always get bass traps to add on later.

    Found these as well, thicker and larger.

    Sorry, HR's site is buggy and Chrome won't let me follow that link. You seldom can 'hear' bass issues in a room. But they're there.

    As said by others, not in relation to bass frequencies,

    I've ordered 4 rockwool soundpanels 1240x640x50mm and 2 bass traps 1240x640x100mm.
    Any advice on placement? The room is a bit weird. 1st reflection point left side has a closet closish and the right side goes into a window frame.
    See pics, Thanks.

    It's a start. I'd just put those (2'x4'x4") bass traps one in each corner to either side of you, maybe trying other corners to see how it sounds. Might as well put one of the 2" (50mm) thick ones on the door, and consider just getting a heavier drape if that one is thin for the window, if that's really your reflection point. The other 2" panel could go overhead, the back wall, or behind the desk. Depends on what is acting up and impacting your recording or mixing the most. Experiment if you can.

    Thanks Keith,

    I could also use the windows as the front wall, any problems with doing that?
    That would mean the 1st reflection points would be pretty straight but the back wall would then be half sticking out closet and half flat wall.

    If you can be centered between the side walls and treat those reflection points that's probably good. The only thing to consider is what's happening behind the monitors, e.g., if one has a curtain and the other doesn't. So, it might be a place for one of the panels (front wall).

    Open the closet door, maybe get a freestanding kind of room divider or, what I used to start with, a couple boom stands ("stupid deal" 2 for $20 shipped from MF - just don't take them on the road and expect them to last more than a gig or 2!) with heavy blankets/moving pads draped over them. The overhead reflections probably caused (and still do, as I can only "cloud" a very small area because of door openings and attic access) more problems than I realized in my small room. A couple clouds and throw rugs and sitting/standing in the right place w/proper mic placement is a learning experience for all of us resource constrained home recorders!
