Building My Gobo's

I am building some Gobos for my new space to help stop the multiple reflection points that are happening in my space. They will also be on wheels so I can use them for recording vocals.

Each one is 7.5' tall and will open to be 4' wide and 6" thick. When closed they will be 2ft wide and 12"thick. They will mainly be used to stop the reflections from both mix positions. I share a space with another AE and we need 2 separate desks because there is times when we are working at the same time.

I thought I would post some pics and get some feedback before I finish them off over the next few days.

The Roxul will stick out about 1" on both sides to maximize its absorbency.

I will post pics as I go along as well.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

LOL

I just have to find time to finish them. Just as I started this project I ended up getting a lot of work. I should be finishing them by the weekend.

I was working at a major studio downtown and ran some pink noise through the space using the same speakers I use at my place (KRK V6 with RP10sub). With only 11 broadband traps built my space is already comparable but suffers from comb filtering a bit more (obviously). My prediction is that once the Gobo's are finished my mix posistion will be as perfect as I need it to be due to fact that my first reflection points will be totally taken care of.

I am so exited right now you have no idea!!!!!!!!!

It's been a while since I posted an update but the Audio Engineering has been busier than expected

Here is an update. After reading, than reading again, than some more, I realized that the Gobos only needed to be about 3" thick to stop first reflections. It made the job way easier.

Here is some updated pics!

I should have some more time over the weekend to finish the assembly. I am pretty stoked!

Ok, Here are some pics
These things work like a hot dam as first reflection points!!!!

I have built two now and they are the best thing I have ever done for the sound of my room (besides broadband absorption in the corners of course!)
