Redo on studio or quit...
Currently I have two rooms built in my garage in a shape that would accommodate my business and two separate rooms, one for tracking , one for mixing. I have great solid core doors sealed with outdoor weather stripping and commercial automatic closers. I have a great control room window with 2 pieces 6'x 3' of 1/2 inch in total each side laminated glass in a beautiful oak frame we built. I have spent thousands upon thousands in building materials and endless hours playing with DIY theories and room treatment... I have even recently (last week) built soffits for my nearfield monitors all to no avail. I have tons of ATS panels 16, tons of GIK diffusers 16, tons of corners filled with Rockwool and even a bass trap with 8' x 20" wood and insulation in a corner... but it's all a big mess. I initially wanted to do a small humble tracking and mixing room and didn't want to get into a full studio design for several reasons. One I don't know how long I will be in this house. Two, I have only the garage to utilize and wanted to keep use of the garage door. Three I have only 8 foot ceilings in my garage and know you need higher ceilings (15 +foot) for tracking say drums well and didnt have any great expectations of what the room could sound like.
At this point it seems I have to rip the wall out. I moved the speakers into the narrow part of the room in the walkway and they sound amazing to myself and my wife. we both shook our heads in disappointment with this project. I didn't measure but I know the shape is completely wrong in the side of the room I want to utilize just by hearing it... Secondly I can't move my mix position because of functionality of the house. At this point the wall is completely useless and I would rather not have the wall with its current behavior in sound on the mixing side. Before I begin to do anything I need desperately to understand what I keep and what I need to do. I still don't know if I want to hire a designer but I am willing to pay for consolation.
