Make my boring rectangular mix room MAGIC

Hey All,

About to move my own mixing setup into a new space in East London/Hackney. Stoked to finally have a proper blank palette to work from!

I've got some Gik panels already
- 2x 244s with no range limiters as a ceiling cloud
- 3x Monster traps with range limiters + scatter plates on the back wall

I'll be adding in some tri-traps in the accessible corners.
4A Alpha Panels with diffusors along the side walls along the back half of the room behind the listening position.
2x monster traps either side of the window (!!) on the front wall

My main question is regarding the following:

Will I be better off with monster traps on the side walls either side of the listening position rather than 244 panels? Or 244 panels with a small gap behind them?

Also I’m worried I'm not covering enough of my front wall with bass trapping! Currently it'll be nearly floor to ceiling tri-traps in either corner and a monster panel either side of the window. Should I also be considering a corner trap above and below the window?

I'm attaching a picture of the space in Roomie.

Ceiling height is 2.7m.

Any second opinions are greatly appreciated!

Do you have any body parts left you didn't have to sell?

Your room is longer than wide so the first length mode will be further down in frequency than the first side mode.

Lower frequency = more (velocity based) treatment.

No, you should measure the room, first empty, then with as many treatment variations as you can set up, then post the .mdat in here. You almost have 2500 posts, you should have an omni mic and a sound card by now.
