ZR Quantum Acoustics

Welcome to the forum! :thu: There's a few threads on GS about these guys, and their mystical devices that seemingly defy the laws of physics, and don't even make much sense at all. In fact, you'll find that not one single reputable acoustician or studio designer thinks anything good about most of th...

Can't argue with that! I think you'll find a lot of people that share your opinion. :)

Back to the land of the living!

Well, this has not been a good month: As many have probably noticed, I've been absent from my own forum! Out of action, due to some type of mysterious bug.... not "THE" bug, apparently (not corona virus), but still not any fun at all... Slowly getting back into things, and over the next fe...

Inside out modules...

However the biggest problems here are the sound blasts from the Studio and CR every time someone goes between rooms. A small air lock to the studio probably helps a little, and the CR could have a "dim" switch that attenuates the monitor amp every time the door opens... but the ingress/eg...

Inside out modules...

Anyway, here's the news flash - "Forget about all that mass! "(he says...) "You don't need it, it's more about stiffness!" Wellll... I'd take that with a grain of salt! He's right, of course... but only for frequencies below resonance, and at the coincidence dip (sort of). In tr...

Home Studio Remodel - I removed my ceiling! + Soffit mounting!

Great! I saw the photos now, so that makes things quite a bit clearer. Okay well I'm totally open to your input for a "new school" design. I think it's no secret that I'm rather partial to the RFZ design concept ("Reflection Free Zone"), as the basis, but then there's some things...

Feasibility of Isolating Studio Above Attached Garage

Wow! What a great initial post for a studio project! :thu: An excellent example, that hopefully others will follow. I'm a bit tied up right now trying to meet a deadline for a client, so I can't comment immediately, but I did want to let you know that I did see your post, and I'm impressed with your...

Inside out modules...

Hi Stuart, you suggested I start a thread about my build, so I may as well start it here. Disclosure - you know of my proposed build already, we exchanged a few posts over at John's site. I'm the guy that wanted to build on the 7th floor of an office building. Cool! Lindsey, right? PrincePlanet? Wo...

Hello from Canada

Hi Marc. WELCOME to the forum! :thu: :) Glad you found us. I will soon be posting a very comprehensive (and quite long) thread about the feasibility of isolating a small studio space atop an attached garage... (I know, I know... an expensive challenge to say the least). The initial research started ...

Home Studio Remodel - I removed my ceiling! + Soffit mounting!

Hi there "braedenalter", and Welcome to the forum! :thu: :) Just wanted to start out and thank Stuart for being so educational. In the past, I have studied his replies for years and have moved my studio and treated my rooms multiple times, and with great results thanks to him among others....

Studio / living room treatment

Hi Andres, and Welcome to the forum! :thu: I'm glad you found it. So this is the new place you mentioned to me a while back? It has some potential, but will need quite a bit of treatment to get it good. It's a long narrow room, with an almost square cross section: it's hard to make out the numbers o...

Site-built window pair, for high isolation.

1421 Would these gaps (120mm and 150 mm) create a 3 leaf affect ? Yes, with caveats: If that outer glass facade is a curtain wall in a commercial building, in many cases the glass is not sealed to the floor or ceiling, so you don't have good isolation. Which resonances? How would this window compar...

Site-built window pair, for high isolation.

1423 I am in Texas and the architect was saying that the external window has to “meet code”. At that we couldn’t just build something onsite – we must use a prefab window that has been tested and has a particular “R” value… It sounds like he's talking about some type of curtain wall? It is possible...

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

Hi Brian, and Welcome to the Forum! :thu: :) Is it possible to use REW EQ to measure and calibrate a 5.1 system? Yes it is, but it's a bit more complex than for a 2.0 or 2.1 system. It would be a good idea for you to start your own thread in the "RECORDING STUDIO ACOUSTICS AND TREATMENT" s...
