The Soundman Studio Design and Acoustics forum is for people who want to design and build their own recording studios, home theaters, listening rooms, rehearsal rooms, or other acoustic space. Its a place to share experiences, document progress, ask questions, learn, and help each other out with advice.
It is also very appropriate for people with other types of acosutic problems, such as churches, performance spaces, offices, restaurants, shops, houses, audiophile rooms, or any other place that needs good acoustics.
Feel free to browse, comment on other threads, and certainly to post your own thread about your place.... but please read the forum rules first! (click here)
Why did I start yet another studio design and acoustics forum? Because I've been posting on other people's forums for well over a decade, limited by their restrictions, and I figured out it was time to have a better place! With as few restrictions as possible.... and no advertising to get in the way! I plan to keep this place free from commercial advertising. Hopefully the "donate" button will keep enough funds flowing to pay for the site itself, and there won't be any need for paid advertising.
The forum is now available in multiple languages, using the "Google Translate" feature, which we recently installed. At the top of every page is a "Translate" icon, with a field that lets you select the language you'd like to read the forum in. However, please only post in English... for now! We will be implementing sub-forums in other languages in the future, but at present it's much easier for everyone if all the posts are in English, which can then be seen in other languages. But do be careful! I'm not at all convinced of the quality or accuracy of Google Translate... I checked a few pages in languages that I do speak, and some of the translations were reasonable, but others were quite.... shall we say "amusing"!
If you'd like to introduce yourself to the forum (even if you aren't planning to design or build your own studio yet), then drop into the Green Room (click here), and say hi! (Please do not reply directly to this thread).
And if you are desperate to get started on your design right away, here's the best place to do that: How to design your own recording studio (click here).
