In the next post Ill have the pictures, heres the questions that go with them.

1. Am I in a smart position room wise (referring to where my desk is)

2. If you notice I have a sheet of foam behind me, would you consider this a usable diffuser? I also hang a moving blanet between the desk and foam for a "vocal area" which I believe sounds pretty good.

3. In the picture of my corner, the pink foam sheet. Does that do anything like a bass trap?

Edit: My floorplan is the attached file

A good starting position with your head about 67 inches from the wall in front of you... I can't tell where you are by the photos. Are you facing the 11ft wall? - you should be.

The moving blanket will help with early reflections but eggcrate foam will do zero diffusion and is only useful for killing flutter echo.

'Pink foam a bass trap does not make.' and it probably doesn't do much of anything else either. (sorry)
I can see that you are on a budget... Moving blankets probably offer the most in absorption that you might have laying around.
Some mattresses can act as bass traps if placed correctly. But the problem is usually that they are too unwieldy to place properly... and the absorption coefficients are unknown. ~shrug~
Save your money and get a roll of Owens/Corning R-13.. and then another, and another. Then stack them up in the corner. - there's the beginning of a decent bass trap.

Cheers,
John
