First of all I'll start by saying I know this room is rubbish and will never be great as a
mixing room no matter what I do. This is why i have some AKG 701's coupled with TB-Isone
and a VRM box for checking. What I would like to know is if there are some cost effective
methods of Improvement to make it a better room for mix checking and cross referencing.
The room is 2.06m deep x 2.26m wide x 2.61 high. There is a small single Window to
the right of the 2.26 wall behind the right monitor. The room also houses 2 fully stocked
book cases one wall length half height and one 1/3rd of the wall wide back left.
I did plan to get some Room EQ wizard plots to attach but have been scuppered by it's
(Java's) current issues with Firewire interfaces on OSX.
The book cases and
size leave little to play with in terms of layout.
Is it worth buying some foam
traps ( maybe like these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Acoustic-Foam-3ft-915mm-Bass-Traps-AFBT02-Prof
) and some more broadband tiles. Or is it really not worth bothering with
and living with the phones for evermore?
What I do also have is IK ARC which
came as a by product of a bargain T-Racks Delux purchase in a bundle.
Would? this in
conjunction with a bit of treatment help. The SOS review of it is good, other pro views on
Gearslutz not so...
I fully appreciate I won't get good, but as near to it would be
Answer a.. Give up on it, it's money pit.
Answer b.. A
Little money and ARC may make a decent improvement as long as I don't expect Miracles.
Oh and Sorry to say work and family mean building my own bass traps falls into the
time is more precious than money category.
Oh and does anyone have the moon on
a stick I'd quite like that too
