TREATING A MIXING ROOM

There is a wide range of recording studios than you might ever expect, all of which are designed especially for particular kinds of recording. In case you don’t know, acoustic-sounded tracks is always taken on top in this genre. It’s necessary to have a room where acoustic values are surrounded by designed walls to attain the requirements. Of course, they will be calculated beforehand, and walls will be built, whether fitted or accordingly, after those calculations are done and checked.

There are plenty of things for you to take in consideration: The building’s architecture, sound proofing, acoustics, interior design, and even the type of furniture the studio is equipped. Normally, two aspects will form the sound quality, acoustics and sound-proofing.

These days, it seems to be impossible to get professional recordings from inexpensive computer-based recording equipment that would probably hard to distinguish from a recording made in high quality studio to many people. Remember, good results can be made in a home studio just right.

Treating an existing room for your playback and recording enjoyment is always something relative only. Most rooms in the beginning are at the wrong size to even begin with. Because of the lack of necessary dimensions and size and associated volume to keep up with the energy from your music, you will be obliged to treat all the areas of your room with room treatment products, which will probably take additional space of your room, making it smaller. In addition, you will neither have to decide which wall gets what type of acoustical treatment, nor figure out where to place diffusers and what type to use. Soundproofing looks easy and you think you can do it yourself but in fact, it demands a bit of calculation and stuff. Just like that, everything needs calculating.

After you have done with the calcuclation, as well as those purchasing process, now make decision.

You would need the most quiet room of your house, the fewer windows the better, best if carpeted. If there is too much echo in room, find thick blankets and hang them on the walls, which will reduce the reverberation. Plug in your monitors, play music randomly and imagine how they would be placed to achieve the best outcome. In my opinion, let’s put each at corner of the room inwardly and the other tools at center. The wave can be transmitted equally from left and right sides. Then you just need to plug in everything, install drivers and softwares, maybe look up a bit for more guides, since in the middle of you setting up, troubles may come out of nowhere. Little mistakes such as problems with the plugs, software failing to install come all the time.

Treating your work environment is not hard. It’s about determining which type of studio you want to build. From this, you will plan what equipment to buy, what kind of sound proofing to choose, how to arrange the furniture, etc. You will need a bit of calculation, but not much, and that is a must.

Good luck.
