<< My name is John. I am looking for suggestions on acoustic treatment of the
new studio I am building. This is my second studio, but the first one was
pretty small (two small rooms in a basement) so the acoustic treatment was
pretty easy. (all I did make the space dead) The new studio is in a detached
garage, wooden framed with vinyl siding. I am building rooms within this
structure framed with metal, insulated, covered in black fiberboard, and then
finished with sheetrock. The ceilings are 10 ft, so I am going to put up a
dropped acoustic tile ceiling about 6 inches below the seetrock ceiling. The
floor in the control room will be wood parquet, and the studio will be
carpet. (I have uploaded to the studiotips site a image of the layout) The
8x8 drum booth is still a maybe. When I get all of the framing up I'll be
able to better judge if it is too small or not. With all of this sheetrock
I'll surely need treatment, but how much? I was thinking maybe a diffusor on
the back wall of the control room, and foam lining the front walls stopping
at the console. This is merely a s.w.a.g. so I am open to suggestions. As for
the studio I don't even have a guess. >>
Run some calcs on RTC and set a target.
If you don't have Everest's Master Handbook, then buy it. It will help you
ask better questions.
