Subject: RPG Studio-in-a-box
I wonder if any of you guys have an opinion on (or first hand experience
with) RPG's Studio-in-a-box. It's a package that contains enough material
(acoustic tiles and bass traps) to treat a room up to 14'x10'x8'.
These are more or less the dimensions of the room in which we record.
Right now, the room is to "live" and I capture too much ambience. I am
really looking for a way to dampen the room without making it completely
dead or "boxy".
The thing is, I am a little suspicious of this "one size fits all"
approach and never had a chance to see or hear the product (being based
in the UK).
The general idea suits me perfectly, since I don't have much confidence
in my DIY skills.;-)
Would it make sense to add a couple of diffusors to improve the sound
further? Or do you think that any such off-the-shelf-solution is a waste
of money? Please keep in mind that we are not talking about the control
room. Any feedback would be very welcome.
