I've been reading your site and i noticed you mentioned... this line:
"In contrast, for about $150 you can buy a Behringer parametric equalizer and use the freeware Room EQ Wizard software to automatically control the EQ from your own computer. "
let's say i pick up this equalizer for $150... then downloaded room eq wizard...
If i'm not mistaken...I'd probably run my output from the CPU through Behringer to get a usable sound for my mixing...
so would i need to buy any bass traps and reflection diffusers if I've Eq'd it to a great response based on EQ wizard reading?
Here's my current setup
I know you've mentioned in one of your articles you should go longways but in my case how much diff would 1 1/2 feet would make. since i'm very limited in space.... :(
i was thinking about picking up a few bass traps in the corner and something to snatch the sound that would be bouncing off the wall... but it all gets fuzzy when trying to figure out how to proceed.
I'm a newb when it comes to mixing and I just want the music in my head sound good in my car... and right now... when it sounds good in the house... it sounds like crap everywhere else....
thanks for all that you do. you're providing me substantial crash course in learning how to make my room sound decent....
