Attic Shaped Studio

1375 I just have to figure out the exact models of supply and return grilles and plenum boxes so I can account for the static pressure added by them. Right! For the registers, don-t forget to take into account the "open area" vs. the actual face area. Registers have fins, grills, vanes, o...

Attic Shaped Studio

That is amazing information, thank you. :thu: 10dB improvement in isolation will totally do the job, I should clarify: 10 dB is probably towards the limit, and would need "all of the above". ie, take off existing drywall, beef up framing for heavy door, seal wall interior well, add clips ...

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

Hi again, Music tracer. Good work there, as Starlight said. You've put a lot into this so far... and to be honest, it shows! :) but I feel that generally the whole project was a failure, Not really! Keep reading.... Regarding the cloud it was made without a hard back , but with 15 cm thick insulatio...

Trouble private messaging

Hi Jason, The PM system on all of these "phpBB" based forums is a little strange: when you send a message, it does go to your outbox... then it stays there until the recipient reads it! Once the recipient reads it, then it goes to your "sent" box. If it has not been read yet, the...

New Home Studio Build

Jason, do you have a SketchUp model of your studio? That would make it easier to figure out the issue, and how to solve it. First, I want to make sure I'm see things the right way: SoulShaker-room-question-1.jpg Is that correct? The LR is over on the right of that photo, beyond the wall, the CR is o...

Private studio in Slovakia

It's looking great, Starlight! You were moving ahead at a good rate... until the lock-down. But that does give you time to go over everything you have done already, carefully, and check for issues that you might have missed during the rush of construction. An it also gives you time to plan ahead, ch...

1269 Hope your vacations have you as refreshed as a properly designed and built HVAC system and have left you in a state of absolute calm as if frequency response times are within 1db across the entire frequency spectrum and their decay times are within 5ms of each other. :thu: I was actually doing...

New build small size high isolation project

Weird it keeps coming up with an error on all my pictures... Please try again, Tom! I've been fiddling with the server behind the scenes, also in "flood control" mode... a flood of spammers! For some reason, some spammers in Russia think we need to know all about their cell phone jammers,...

Attic Shaped Studio

1252 As a standard 4x2 stud wall with 12.5mm plasterboard on either side it's the weakest boundary out of room 1. At least it has insulation in it! How much are you prepared to do to improve isolation here? If you need a reasonalbe improvement, then your plan of adding an extra layer (pr two!) of d...

New Studio Build Underway

1289 Any issues with bypassing conduit and just going with Romex? Stuart suggests using conduit with rubber in-between. Any way of using Romex with rubber and no conduit? You can do it that way, but you lock yourself in for future needs. The reason why I always recommend conduit for studios, is mai...

Inside out modules...

1335 Ah yes, that's the one! Many thanks! :thu: I can now show this to the architect, who was seemed unsure it was a good idea... Understandable... Architects commonly don't understand studio acoustics very well... And an inside-out ceiling also makes his job a bit more complicated! It means doing ...

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

Updated! I just updated this article, since Starlight noticed a few spelling errors ( :oops: ) and also suggested adding more information about other aspects of modes. Great suggestion! So it's a lot more complete now, and I also changed a few parts to try to make it more clear. (... and probably cr...

The initial posts by all new members have to be approved by a moderator before they appear in public, but after you have had two posts approved, then you are good to go without further approvals needed.

Hi there "killerjoe", and welcome to the forum! OK, you spurred me to action: I've been planning on doing an article on inside-out construction for a while, so I'll get working on that. But if your question is specifically about inside-out ceilings, then this thread might be what you are l...
