I posted this over at the John Sayers forums but I thought you guys might be able to help me too. I just converted my detached garage into a single live room. The dimensions are 16.5 feet long by 11.5 feet wide. The ceiling is arched and the floor is a wood laminate that sounds and feels like wood. I've done a lot of research but I am totally confused to where and which type of traps/diffusers/absorbers I should make. I've attached a sketchup file so you guys can get a better idea of what the room is like. The amps and drums are setup like that in the room. Right now it sounds a little bouncy but pretty nice overall. When I mic the bass, you can hear it reflecting though. On the door and window, I basically built a plug for each so they protrude 4 1/2' and 6 1/2' into the room. Those are supposed to be built in shelves next to it.
Right now I have about 8ft by 8ft of the auralex foam and 20 acoustic blankets. I know that the blankets can make the room pretty dead which is what I do not want but I thought I would let you know what I have right now to start with.
I guess I am just asking how you guys would do it if it were your live room for recording. I don't have a budget because I want to do it right and if it takes me making one panel at a time, then I'll do it that way. This isn't a shameless plug, but at the bottom of this page I have a couple of pictures uploaded. (The couch has been moved to where it is in the sketchup file though)
