Mixing room..

Hey all.. Is this room too small for a useable mixing space? I work on mostly dance and electronic music of one sort or another.

Thanks.

.. too small for a useable mixing space? No. Too small for a great mixing space? Yes.

Thanks for that.. Can you give me some idea of the limitations? Is it mostly low end?

Yes, besides the modal problems at low frequencies, lack of modal support below ~50 Hz and the fact that you have two axial modes at around 65 Hz that will most likely combine more than you want, early reflection points are also going to be closer to you which means that early reflections will affect you more.
You can solve most of these problems to at least some degree by properly treating the room, although you'll have to sacrifice some space.
I have a room of similar size and while it isn't perfect, it isn't that dificult to work in and I have too much gear (for such a small room, not in general ) in it which certainly doesn't help the acoustics.

30 cms off each side wall for treatment will leave you with a 2 m wide room, is that enough for you?

I don't have much choice for now.. Although I "may" eventually have the cash to build a larger room! Anyway here's a design we came up with.. Love any opinions thanks.

Try to treat the side walls floor to ceiling.
