I was only talking about from the front wall to the "listening position"... once the audio is past the desk, all that's left to do with it is control reverberation times and patterns of diffusion.

A ceiling that goes up in the front and peaks just behind the engineer's postion is an expansion ceiling... a ceiling where the low point is just behind the engineer's position is a compression ceiling... the rest of the ceiling isn't really quite as critical [in a Jim Beam vs. Jack Daniels sort of way... it's all a matter of taste at that point, and conflicting views of theory].
