That's a lot of cedar... nice space.
Small Room Acoustics and appropriate treatment.
The floor is excluded and since I am mentioning floors; All studio rooms should have hard floors...
Like those waterfall graphs, but can't help you.
Folks, it's 2016. There must be an app out there that will measure the acoustics in my room and give some (at least basic) guidance of how many 'sabins' of absorption at different frequencies, or where you can put in your absorber's frequency range and get told how many to put up or, at the very least, give you an idea of what frequencies are needing extra treatment.
Anyone know of any such thing?!
Hey, Mike. How've you been?
As of right now - no rear-firing ports - but who knows the future may bring.
Inadvertently omitted detail - all 703 is being installed so as to stand-off 2" from wall.
My current intention is to follow-up the 703 installation by covering the lower 5' of rear wall with thick 705 (possibly FRK) trapping.
Wow! You guys are STILL using the dense, reflective 703 and even 705!! When lightweight (GFR = 5000 mk/rayls) is far superior?
Advice: Never, ever use 703 thicker than 2" and just NEVER use 705 for acoustic treatment... unless it is in pre-packaged panels bought from a panel manufacturer. (because it is what it is...)
Also, 8" of trapping is NOT bass trapping, because it barely gets to 150 Hz at 0 deg incidence.
Corner trapping is just the tip of the iceberg.
Putting panels on reflection points is dipping your toes in the water.
Come on boys! Jump IN! Do it right... do it once.

All the best!
Great info in your videos - specially for those who are in the construction phase of their studio room. For those of us using a pre-existing room, not so much. Our rooms are the dimensions we've got. And 'small' is relative, too. Your room mode demo video, for example - almost a 12' ceiling. I wish I had 12 feet in any dimension in my room. Membrane traps? Great, again, if you've got room for them. If i put as many thick traps as you show in my room, I wouldn't have room for the desk or chair to sit in!
Well, since I've ended-up with a 12-pack bundle, I am intending on covering just about 100% of walls of the 'business' end of my little project studio with 2" 703 stood-off the wall 2". The info I've seen indicates this should handle pretty well everything from 250hz up.
I'll have four panels remaining at this point. Vascilating between installing on the sloped ceiling or on the back wall.
For bass-trapping, not sure - pink fluffy corner traps?
