Hi!

I live in Sweden, I produce music and sound for indie games to surround dome theater films and anything in between really. My partner and I are looking for a new place, one that can accomodate a more permanent home studio solution for me. I’m dreaming of a barn here out in the middle of the woods, that’d be fantastic!

We have a budget like most people and I have to consider my options here when we’re looking at places! I’m struggling to form a good question here but my thoughts are if there is any data on most cost effective room sizes when it comes to acoustic treatment. So I guess I could formulate my question this way:

In order to accomodate a full frequency spectrum in a studio, is there a point where the room size starts to allows for cheaper acoustic treatment plans?

I suspect there are many layers to this and if you think I’m going about this the wrong way I appreciate your input.

All the best

The room size and volume is where you must start. Finding the proper room size does not dimenish the amount of treatment required. It is always about surface area covergae no matter what the room size. The proper size room will allow the treatment to work better. It will not dimenish the amount of treatment. Start with a 6-7m w, x 4 – 5m height, and a 10 m length for your usage.

Thank you kindly for the quick response! I appreciate it.

There’ll most likely be an update to this thread eventually but for now I need to strategize and budget plan. Thanks again!

p.s.

Any plans on manufacturing your products in europe?

All the best
