I'm in the process of getting my loft studio together, and am casting about for how to
treat it since I'm getting close to being at the point where I can start on that. It's in
a fairly open-concept cathedral-ceiling (least, that's the American term for it) building,
and I haven't been able to find much for treatment strategies for a room of that shape.
The area of my studio is roughly 3m x 6.5m, the ceiling is roughly 3.2m at the center.
The entire room is roughly 6.5m x 10m (and actually sounds quite nice).
EQ Wizard says I currently have a null around 100Hz and resonances at around 40Hz (suspect
that's actually the porting on my speakers),and somewhere higher, I can't remember
offhand. My mixes have been coming out quite bass-heavy lately, so change is
The whole rig is torn down at the moment while I prep the subfloor
for the actual flooring, so I'll be trying different speaker locations and orientations
before I put it all back together.
Pictures are always helpful, right?
Note that yes, the speakers were pointed in too far, and
need to come up on proper stands. That whole table shakes when the kick drum hits, so
that's clearly a problem! I'm going to try to set up so they fire down the 10m length of
the room, but my spouse is resistant to obstructing the window, so I may still end up
My first thought is some rockwool absorbers between the roof
beams around head height, maybe 4" thick with 4" of airspace behind.
suggestions on treating a space like this?
