Need help measuring response of an L- shaped room

Postby jjitter » Wed Jan 03, 2018 3:50 pm

Hello all,

I finally have a budget to get a measurement microphone and get some acoustics done with the help of REW for my home mixing studio. Below is a picture of the room layout and the mixing spot as of now.

But I was really wondering wether that a good spot to start measuring? Do I have a better chance of good acoustics facing some other wall?

Just wanted some advice before I start measuring for the first time.

Thank you! Any help will be appreciated.

I think that's the optimum setup for that room. You're working along a long dimension, which is good, and you have a reasonably symmetrical region (in terms of walls and surfaces) around the monitors and listening position, which is also good.

Hi Hugh,

Feel kind of relieved when you say that. Had been wondering if an L-shaped room can ever get close to a rectangular room in terms of acoustics. The mix spot is at around 40% of the room length. Room length = 3.9m, mix spot distance from front wall =1.5m.

Will make a relevant thread for a few other measurement related questions.

Thanks!
