Welcome to Home Studio Know How! In this series we’ll be learning all about the importance of acoustics and our listening environment.
Let’s look at some of the basic anatomy of a sound waves and learn about some of the most fundamental physical principles.
Here we’ll quickly explore a few more physical principles that will play an important part in how we hear sound, resonance and reflection.
Let’s explore the construction of what creates our sound, the speaker. Learn more about how the speaker emits sound and interacts with our listening environment.
Discover the golden ratios that help us set up the perfect and ideal listening position. When ideal situations aren’t available, use what we’ve learned to create the most ideal set up.
Now that we’ve learned the basics about sound waves, let’s see how waves react in a room, and learn what effect the room has on the sound that we hear coming from our speakers.
In this video we’ll explore 2 methods of determining the listening position in the room, and discuss a few sacrifices that we may need to make due to space limitations.
Before we can treat our room, we need to first learn to identify common problems in the home studio. Here we’ll get some great tips on locating flutter echo and other common audio issues.
Learn how to properly select, and install acoustic treatment in your room. It’s not as hard as you think!
In this video, we'll go over some of the testing equipment we use to get a baseline acoustic analysis of our room. We'll also see how to analyze the test results.
Here we're going to make a plan of attack for improving the sound of our room. We'll start by finding a better location for our speakers and listening position.
Let's build our own broadband absorbers and bass traps, then we tackle the first order reflections. We smooth our bass response with bass traps and find some intuitive ways to battle resonant frequencies.
Studio professional Dave Askew breaks down the things you need to know for a solid foundational understanding of room acoustics, and how to set up your studio for better sound and mixes!
