Myth: Modes and room ratios: "I have too many modes! I need a better ratio to get rid of them"

Updated again! A new member (rspaghetti) with eagle eyes spotted a couple more typos, and I also did some minor changes to hopefully improve a couple of points that weren't very clear. Open invitation: If anyone spots a typo, spelling error, or unclear explanation in any of the articles here on the ...

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

Hi there jazztronaut, and Welcome to the forum! :thu: :) Your measurement mic should still go in the middle of the spot where your head will be, since that's the place closest to where your ears are, and that's what matters. That said, for some precision tuning measurements I sometimes do a set of t...

Studio Build- Central Portugal

That's a real bummer! Your studio has just taken so long to get off the ground, with so many setbacks, one after the other! It must be very frustrating for you. But when it is finished, I reckon you'll forget all about that, and just enjoy making great music in there! There is light at the end of th...

Studio Rebuild - Treatment

Ok. I have been struggling with this decision for a while now. See, I have Focal Twin6’s and I really like them. I do not think they can be effectively soffit mounted. I agree with Eric and Lucio! There's no reason why the Focal Twins can't be soffit mounted.... which we are doing in Lucio's room, ...

Thanks for the customarily short and snappy response Stuart You are absolutely right! I really do think I should wax more eloquent, and extend deeper into the details, be more long-winded. These short snappy answers just aren't cutting it.... :ahh: :roll: I reckon I can source 20mm or so fairly eas...

Wow!! Congrats Stuart! That is awesome news all around. And VERY impressive on the google search results. Ranking so high like that is no small feat in the SEO world! Thanks, Trevor!

Is this a bad soffit idea?

I have found several explanations that make it clear to keep early reflections below a certain level within an initial time gap, 20ms typically, and allow a diffuse field to support our natural expectations above the gap. Right! 20ms at least, 30ms or more ideal, and it's not just the early reflect...

Here's some interesting stats I pulled off the server last night: Forum-server-stats-graph-for-2020.jpg (The graph ain't very pretty, and looks rather 1990's video-game style graphics, but hey, it's free software for analyzing web performance! And it does a good job.) That shows the traffic growth o...
