Control Room Acoustic Issues

Hey all,

I need some assistance with placement of foam absorbers in my home studio. I know this topic has been addressed many times, so if anyone can supply current links that would be great.

Or below is a jpeg and detailed description of the room, if someone feels like supplying direct advice. It's not so much the bass I'm having problems with, that's fairly under control, it's that my mixes are sitting a little too much in the mid frequencies for my liking. Music is electronica

Cheers
Jason

Room: Master bedroom
Floor: Carpeted
Monitors: Fostex PM1's. On wooden bridge with Aurlex foam absorbers. 50cm from rear wall
Opposite Wall: 2 wooden wardrobes
Left wall: Small built in wardrobe with wooden doors, 80cm from Monitors.
Right Wall: Window, not facing the sun. Thin decorative sheet/quilt

*Brown colouring on jpeg represents wardrobes.

Could we get the dimensions?

Any chances you could post the dimensions of the room (L x W x H)?

First thing to do is find your first reflection points and put up 2x4' absorbers of some sort there.

Pretty much everything you need is right here:

Acoustic Treatment and Design for Recording Studios and Listening Rooms

There's also a huge amount of non-sales educational material on my company's web site, linked under my name below.

It's all related. When you get the mids and highs correct, then you'll easily notice the problems I'm sure you have with the bass. heh

@ PBell

L = 11 ft to wardrobe, 12 ft to wall
W = 11 ft
H = 8 ft

Also, should I look at moving my setup around 90 degrees so the monitors back onto the window?

I am having a little trouble figuring out your full set up, but you want to sit facing the shortest wall in the room and about 38% of the room length of that. So if the room is 12 feet long you want to sit about 4.5 feet from the 11 foot wall.

I realize, but at least it's all relevant and useful information, and all in one place. Versus scouring the 'net for tidbits and trying to make sense of all the conflicting info. The other choice is to buy acoustic treatment from a vendor who will work out all the details for you. I do this every day for customers. heh
