I’d be very grateful for some studio treatment advice.

I have a new space, around 4 metres wide by 6 metres long and 2.50 high – see pix. My main setup is across one of the short ends. My work is in music, sound-design and film so there are different requirements for this space and it’s a bit of a compromise. I have two screens which will fit together once I have wall-mounted my nearfield monitors – either side of the high window.

Treatment-wise, I have fitted bass traps on this end wall and will fit foam panels on the wall deirectly behind the monitors, once they are wall-mounted, and on their reflection point on the ceiling.

I am not really sure what to do on the side and back walls. I have a number of 30cm x 30cm foam panels, bass traps and 4 60cm x 60cm diffusor panels (see pix). I am just wondering how to use them to best advantage in this space. The floor is wooden and there are minimal soft furnishings. I am aware that the French doors are around a reflection point of the monitors. I will be mounting a curtain across the doors and there will be a blind on the vertical end window. I’ll be putting some pictures on the side walls.

Right now the sound isn’t bad in the space but sounds a bit bass light.

I’d be grateful for any advice.

Thanks

None of the treatment types you have in your room will treat the low frequency issues. This is the reason why you stated that the bass was “light” You must look at the frequency and amplitude issues that your room produces and assign the proper treatment types, amounts, and positions of those treatment types.

Thank you – that’s really helpful. Can you advise on the best way to assess the frequency and amplitude issues of the room?
