    I just built 8 Broadband Absorber

    It's still pretty much the same principle as a mixing position. Treat first reflection points, bass traps, clouds. Ear level/speaker height is where you want the center of the panel to line up with. You can use a free room measurement tool like REW REW - Room EQ Wizard Home Page, to see if...

    Video Production... Microphones

    Hey guys, I was just recently approached by a local production company and got to talking with the owner and found out they really didn't have a "sound engineer" on their team. I got to talking with them and told them I was more than capable of doing anything from voice overs or recording sound...

    Bass Traps In Corners

    It depends on what type of bass trap you want to make, there's a few different kinds that people use. The first is essentially a panel, much like a broadband absorber, but with much thicker insulation. Usually anywhere from 4-8 inches thick of as apposed to the 2in thick panels of a broadband...

    question involving file type and quality loss

    I have a good friend who recently recorded a song at home, got good results and a solid mix and sent it off to a person he found for it to be mastered and from what he said for it to be formatted to work with Itunes? It was a "website" mastering company, they never directly met with the person...

    Absorption/diffuser combo panel

    Was just surfing youtube and found this video of what's called a flexifuser from prime acoustics. Can any of the more seasoned people here comment on the possible effectiveness of a design like this??? Essentially it's a two in one absorber/diffuser panel. Thought it was a kind cool idea, and...

    Acoustic treatment - don't know where to start

    Well what you can do is make panel bass traps and stick them on stands so they're portable, so when ever you need them you can move them into position in the corners. There's somebody on here or gearslutz that rigged up a little rail system that they hung bass traps from so they could easily...

    Need help with bass trap design

    From doing a quick google search, sorry I'm not familiar with the stuff. It's meant for sound proofing, aka keeping the sound in/out. That does nothing in terms of treating a room...only making your neighbors happy. There are a two main different forms of bass traps, there are "super...

    Taking off the jeans...

    Ok not really!:p But...we were talking about a lot of different types of sound treatment in one of my classes and the uses of rock wool, 703/5, and your other standard acoustic insulation that everybody uses. Somebody spoke up though and said that there was a "denim" insulation that he had...

    CAD E100s

    Anyone have any experience with these? I have a chance to pick up a matched pair for $450. Just need a little reassurance that these would make a good addition. I've been looking to find something to use as drum overheads, I've just been using sm57s with modest results. From prices new...

    EQ rack question

    I feel like I'll posting in the newbie section for quite a while lol. Too much to learn :o EQ rack equipment...why have it? Because you record through this outboard equipment first correct? It's towards the beginning of your "signal flow" chain. Which means you be "pre-eqing" signals, not...
