Time for treatment

2295 You can download my mdats from my post from earlier today. Oh yeah! Now we be TALKIN'! Howie-REW-FR-20..20k--New-Sub.png Now we have some serious low end.... in fact, now it's too MUCH :shock: Try turning your sub down by about 30 dB, to get it at more or less the same level as the rest of the...

Green Glue Test Results

2297 To state it more seriously: the cost of the Green Glue is less than the cost of the additional time/labour that would be spent applying extra drywall layers. :thu: Very true. That's in addition to losing a couple of inches along each dimension of the room... and the extra weight! In your case,...

Time for treatment

It says 200/400 amps but it is passive. I think you mean Watts, not Amps! I didn't check the manual, but I'm guess that means 200 watts continuous, 400 watts peak? But in any case, 200 watts should be plenty for what you need. You don't need to blow the roof off! Just put out enough power in the lo...

That should be fine, Howie. That would do the job.

How To Calibrate and Use REW To Test and Tune Your Room Acoustics

Is there a good place to go for room treatment stuff? I can also Google. Right here, on the forum! :) We don't sell treatment, but we can certainly show you how to make your own. Or w can suggest things that you can buy, if you don't want to make stuff. But first you have to figure out WHAT treatme...

2274 I attached that sound card file. Hmmm... there's an issue there with the way you did the setup and calibration, it seems. This is what your data file is showing: amurguia-REW--Soundcard-issue.png This is what a typical soundcard should look like: good-soundcard-2-MKCAN.png It looks like you mi...

How To Calibrate and Use REW To Test and Tune Your Room Acoustics

Great! :thu: ...in a small 20' x 15' room. Ceiling height? Sound spreads out and bounces around in all three directions, so it is important to know about the height too. 20x15 is reasonable: 300 square feet can be quite good, acoustically. It's not an ideal home theater room, but it is pretty rectan...

Time for treatment

Cool! Very interesting, actually. Here's what you are getting with your K12s.... First, I normalized the frequency response curves as close as I could get, so they are all at the same relative levels, then I looked at them in pairs, to see what each control is doing. First, the "Vocal Boost&quo...

Attic Shaped Studio

Thanks for the suggestion for heat reflective film for the windows Stuart. I already have the Velux heat reflective roller blinds fitted to the windows, all six panes. The difference with the reflective film is that it is on the outside surface of the glass, and stops the heat from getting through....

Hi there, and welcome to the forum! :) :thu: I have moved your post from the original location (it was here: https://www.digistar.cl/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5 ), to his location, since this is the best place for it. We would need to have the actual MDAT data file that REW created, to be able t...

Home studio design - first step, a door!

The shape should be OK. But is it fairly soft and pliable? It seems to be from the photos. Do take into account that you need that to be many feet long, and every inch of length needs a certain amount of pressure. If it doesn't compress easily, then you might need a lot of pressure from the door clo...

That's interesting. I wonder where Ted got that from. I don't recall having seen any info on that, but it sounds possible.

Green Glue Test Results

Thanks Andre! Great info about the development. I wasn't aware of that! I must go take a look at Studiotips again. I haven't been there in a while. I hope the info is still there. What the development team found was that sound isolation improved with each increase in product. What they figured was t...
