I have been reading this forum for quite long time, and I really wanna say thank you. There's a lot of great information!
I am pretty new to the art of recording, so I would like to ask experts.
What I have is a weird-shaped small room. I attached my drawing with measurements. Room is 8 ft high, has carpet floor, non-covered painted dry wall and "popcorn" ceiling. There is a built-in wall closet on the left by the entrance door (not a walk-in closet) with a sliding double door. There are two windows at 135 deg. angle to each other. I can move desk. Wall cabinets are attached to the wall, but it can be moved if necessary.
My main instruments are bamboo flute (approximately, same range as tenor recorder) and Native American flute. I don't plan to record drums or bass.
What I have in mind is to place 3-4 Roxul panels on the walls (purple color on the drawing), 4" Roxul gobo (green color), Roxul cloud right above the mic.
1. Does it make any sense?
2. Do I need to place something between mic and entrance door?
3. Any suggestions in terms of set up?
I will do the room study, but it will take me some time to learn the software and how to use it properly…
You are going to need to move around the room and figure out the best area where it sounds good to you. Don't forget that the ceiling is a also a source for reflections.
What sequence would you suggest?
Should I first do "standard" room treatment with absorbers and then move around or is it better to find the best sounding spot first and then figure out what I need to do to improve it?
