This is great. Not enough people understand how easy and inexpensive it is to put together a sound treatment setup that is much more than adequate

Good advice here for when starting out as whatever you can do to mitigate the inherent problems of any room is important. I guess it all depends to what level you expect to take the recordings but to get started definitely worth following most of these points.

Smashing, versatile stuff!
I also use it for woodworking, which I believe was the original purpose for which it was marketed!

I think you mean the ACETATE Ive'?

There is an PV acrylate glue but it seems to belong to the superglue family.

Excuse the images alignment. It's being sorted.


Thank you for part 2, Zukan. The link works fine and the information you provided in both parts is profound!

Zack...

I saw you also posted in another sticky on the forums promoting your web site.

Here's a handy hint....

This thread is EIGHT years old. Hardly a 'new' thread by any definition. So, if I may quote you..

The links are still broken. I remember having looked at them years ago and finding some of the information useful. Is there any chance of resuscitating the links one more time? There may also be some new information from the past few years that we could add.

Hi Jorge,

I've just waded through the entire thread and edited the links to Zukan's 3-part Acoustic Treatment tutorials. There are a couple of other links to now long-gone SOS forum threads that didn't survive the 10-year cull, but I've amended the text accordingly as well.

Here's to another ten years! :beamup:

Martin, thank you, much appreciated. I had forgotten how very useful the series was, and now that I am upgrading my bales-of-rockwool bass traps to try to smooth out the bass a bit more, I will go through it again.
