9x33' room high ceilings 1 long brick wall one short glass...
Just got a new apartment. I know this is not the ideal mixing environment but i decided that tracking would be more inportant and I love the place. Its 9' X 33' X 14' high. One long wall is brick the other is dry wall one short wall is glass the other is drywall, there is a drywall loft/kitchenette on the non glass side. Where do I put my monitors? against the long wall or short? I kinda want to keep the window area open (4th floor view of downtown market street in san francisco). Any recomendations? There is A LOT of velvet curtains at the thrift store around here and I was thinking about getting some partially just for aesthetics but for sound as well (I know they don't cut the low end reflections). BTW i am monitoring with ns-10's and event 20/20's.
Have the speakers face the long way. I've done both in narrow rooms and like the long way better. It's also easier to get around in the room. 9 feet isn't very deep and you're asking for trouble with reflections and ergonomics of the space.
