Can you just confirm that these are the correct dimension for the First Reflection Calculator?
Yes, this works for any surface in any direction between the speaker and operator. For surfaces behind the speaker or operator, use negative numbers. It's all relative. heh - works especially well for the 'Surface Reflection Calc' section.
I downloaded the Roommodecalculator and put in the lowest ceiling height to get an idealroom and looked at the Ideal Rooms tab. Can you tel me when i put a height of 2.51 table d is a yes ans table e is an no?
My room in which i want to build my mix room in is 2.66 heigh, 3.8 width and a depth of 5.45. I want to build a room in a room so i need space for sound proofing. My first intention was to make the room with the ratio's of table e. Can you explain why it is a no?
I programmed that section to immediately flag a room of less than 42 cubic meters (1500 cu. ft.) because there are too few modes and very large spacing between them in such small rooms. Not ideal. That's all.
Be sure to run the dimensions in the 'all modes' section. You will see that many otherwise 'perfect' ratios will yield horrible results when facing 'real' dimensions. heh
Don't assume that you have a good ratio and go for it without checking. Also know that ONE inch or centimeter will make a huge difference is some cases.
And don't forget to check the red bars on the Bonello distribution chart. Blues higher than reds = good / the inverse is bad.
Thanks for the Calcs, John. Some detailed work there.
Andre I use a Mac also and can't refresh the charts. I think it's because the charts require the Macros to run, but upon opening Excel, the program states that the Visual Basic macros don't work (in Office 2008 for Mac). Unfortunately I don't see a way around it on a Mac.
Does anyone have the 'open office' stuff? (free) Maybe it would work there?
the first reflection worksheet functions (after converting) on Google Docs but it doesn't support the graphics and some of the formating. (in general spreadsheets with Macros or fancy layouts struggle on Google Docs...) the other spreadsheets are too large to convert (limit is 1Mb). if we could get these under 1Mb it might be possible to use as Google Docs.
Room mode calculators - The Ideal Rooms tab features more data and explanations to include 'nearest prime' column. ** I highly recommend that you use prime numbers for your finished dimensions. - There are no common denominators!
Reflections-Boundaries-Mass spreadsheet features many new tabs and calculators. Take your time and check them out. You'll find calculators for things you didn't know you needed.
