Не работает личка

Попробуйте опубликовать новую тему в Зеленой комнате, объясняя, что вы хотите, и я посмотрю на это.
Кроме того, вы находитесь в России, ваш IP-адрес находится в России, но вы указали флаг страны для Арубы в своем профиле: почему это так?

New build small size high isolation project

Precision engineering! That looks like it wasn't such an easy job to get that up there... I hope you didn't put it in upside down! :shock:

(Just kidding... I'm sure you got it right...)

Putty Pads - Theoretical Acoustic Isolation Effectiveness

Also, use more dense material for the bass trap, 8 lb for example Actually, no, that isn't correct. Lower density porous absorption is better for bass. Density is not really the issue: only indirectly. The important point is the GFR: that should be around 5,000 to 10,000 rayls, roughly. Acoustic pa...

Myth: "Studio monitor speakers must be set up in an equilateral triangle"

This one is a little trickier, and even some "experts" don't get it, so I'll try to explain it in simple terms, and also even simpler terms, with pictures, to try to make it fool-proof ... The problem is that "everyone knows" you must set up your speakers and your head in a perfe...

992 ... at the air speed I think we’ll have they would be fine. Right. The whole system is designed to be rather low velocity air flow: that's the key to good HVAC for studios: high volume, low velocity. Internally, inside the silencers, it's only around 150 to 250 fpm., and around 200 - 250 at the...

Internet advice to ignore...

The internet is full of websites with bad advice about acoustics. In some cases it is just ignorance by well-meaning but poorly informed people. In other cases it is deliberate attempts to sell you snake-oil. And in yet other cases, you just have to wonder what the author was smoking when he wrote h...

:thu: Thanks, Andre! While I was writing that article, I was thinking of including the "cars don't have modes" myth, but then it slipped my mind in the end. Thanks for adding that! Very pertinent.

Myth: "The walls of a studio must be angled, never parallel".

This is a rather common and persistent myth. Many people seem to think that it is essential to angle the walls of their home studios, to make it sound OK. After all, everybody knows that having parallel walls makes a room sound terrible, right? Everyone knows that you have to angle the walls, right?...

MSM

It really is excellent. Do viscoelastic treatments like Green Glue act in a similar manner to damping or is it something different? Thanks Jennifer! Green Glue (and its lesser copy-cat wanna-be products, such as Quiet Glue) work on a different principle. I'll probably do an article on that at some ...

Your post on MSM is great! I do not want to dilute the purity of the thted. Thank you Andre! :thu: I plan to improve on it over the next few days (and Starlight already pointed out a spelling error for me to fix).

Advise on what Rock/mineral/glass wool to choose for basstraps

Now I know that probably it isn't going to make much of a difference no matter which one I choose of the two since little differences in the absorption coefficients don't influence acoustic efficiency that much (ie. the bobgolds coefficient chart we all get advise from for years now whenever we nee...

What is "MSM" or "MAM"?

In another article here, I explain about "room in a room" studio construction. In that article, I mentioned "MSM" a couple of times, without going into too much detail. So what exactly is "MSM"? MSM stands for "Mass-Spring-Mass", and that refers to a very simp...
