Idea for diffusion

Since my house is circa 1970's the basement room I use for my Studio is covered in paneling. I stapled a 5x8 rug to the wall behind my puter/monitors, and another to the back wall behind where I mix. The ceiling is acoustic tiles. The floor is carpet.

I was thinking off hanging heavy curtains on rods along walls and having enough curtains so they are bunched up and have lots of folds. Then If I wanted to record drums or a guitar amp and it was too dead or I did not like the sound I could just open the curtains and I have a reflective surface and a different sound.

I know its not gonna absorb like Auralex but figure its worth a try and will look decent as well. I can still put treatment on the walls behind the curtains later and have adjustable treatment by sliding the curtains over.

It is a great thing to do. For best absorption frequency wise, get enough drapery material so that the folds are still thick when the drapes are opened to cover the walls.
