Hi everybody, I am in need of some help to treat my new scoring/mixing rooms.
I am renting a space with two rooms that will be converted in a film music composing studio. The big one is where I will be composing, mixing and recording some acoustic instruments.
The second room will be used for singers, other instruments and voice overs. I don´t have the hardware to measure the room and having it professionally tested is out of my budget (already slim).
Rooms are made of brick and mortar, and I can´t modify the basic structure. I will be focusing in the composing room at this time.
The main issue are the lengths of the walls: 5 meters (length) x 4 meters (width) x 5 meters (height)
(The right wall is 4.76 meters high, so the ceiling has a small angle)
I believe that those two 5 meter walls will reinforce some room modes. So, I would have to lower the ceiling, don´t I?
Then, I have some questions:
1. Can I lower the ceiling by hanging a cloud made with wood, fabric and Isover fiberglass (I believe is similiar to OC), or the only option I have is to build a ceiling made of drywall?
2. At what Height you would recomend me to build this cloud or ceiling.
3. I have made a sketchup model of the room with some acoustic treatment I had planned. Absortion in the reflection points (to be found out with the mirror), and corner bass trapping (would you recomend superchunk or placing panels at 45°, leaving the paper on the front side?)
4. I am planning to build a 1d QRD Difussor at the backwall, would it help in this kind of room?
5. Is all this enough to kill some of the natural reverb of such a high ceiling?
I will be posting more questions as they come up
