Take a look at http://fridge.arch.uwa.edu.au/ (Occidental University of
Australia). There is interesting information, shareware and the more complete
list of absorption coefficents I've seen, including furniture.

Hey that's amazing.. I've been looking for a complete set of absorption
coefficients for the last three years (especially when designing the studio
2 1/2 years ago) and damn here they are - coming right from my home city!

Small world,

Really it is. Here in Spain we say it's a handkerchief.
I've visited your website and seen that you use a curtain. I'm planning to
put one at the rear wall (almost all glass). Is it useful? What drape or
material is it?

Regards

The CurtainS work great. The room is relatively small (5.5m L x 4m W x 2.7
av H) and has a part live section and a part dead section. The curtains are
drawn across to deaden the front section for vocal recording mainly. One
curtain doesn't dampen things enough. With two and a small air gap in
between them it works quite effectively in reducing tranmission into the
live section.

If you are going to use curtains to smother glass.. I would use two spaced a
small distance apart. This should most of the reflections down. I couldn't
tell you what material or drape the curtains are, they were bought at an
auction from another studio.

Hope that helps :)

My track room will be similar: 6x4x3 and behind the curtains I'll put a big
bookcase and boxes filled with absoption stuff.

I am looking for fabrics with a good coefficient of absorption. The best
stuff seems to be velour but it's expensive and I think that I can find
other useful textures.

Sure, Thank you and best regards.
