Time to finally address my room issues.

I've never done any room treatment at all, and based on much advising around here to do so, I'm ready to tackle this (to me) mysterious issue. Any links or references on how to "Do-It-Yourself" that can be trusted to know what they are talking about? The net seems littered with differing opinions on what to do and what you need. I'm just treating my control/mixing room and it's pretty small.

I have a friend with a pink noise analyzer. Would it be useful to have him bring it over to find out which frequency ranges need to be brought under control?

I've got 24 pcs of Owens 703 and 3 pcs of 705, 304 board feet of 1x4, 21 yrds of cloth in the other room right now. Just waiting for the rain to stop so I can start building my room treatments. Good luck with your room.

Ethan Winer's site has alot of good info, John Sayers site is great. Just do a search here and you'll find more info than you'll ever want to read.

Not really. You'll want to start by treating the room in a way that reduces reflections as evenly as possible across the frequency spectrum. And that will probably be a huge enough improvement that you'll stop there, or maybe you'll add some serious bass trapping. Testing and analyzing your room might become useful for advanced fine tuning after you've done the basics, but not before.
