I’m about to begin a standalone build in my back yard for band rehearsal/jamming. I do occasionally like to mix/record as well but that is a secondary consideration.
At this early stage I’m still thinking about size and shape. I have roughly 6m x 7m to play with.
My question is whether building a room with angled walls is of any real advantage in this case or just stick with a simple rectangle as per one of the recognised ratios.

hello fellow melbournian!
what I’ve read so far indicates angled surfaces can have really unpredictable results, especially in small rooms, so rectangular is the go.
I read one study that found, even with only one wall angled, treatments on difference sides could either improve or dramatically worsen the acoustics, and that was for a theoretical plain box all surfaces equal, so imagine trying to account for doors, windows, equipment, ventilation etc.
The only place I’ve seen it recommended is for control room windows, and they are designed specifically for the expected SPLs and live room dimensions.

Well that certainly makes life a bit easier.
Since you’re nearby, do you know of anyone that makes acoustically rated glass sliding doors? Wouldn’t it be great to have a band room that could open up to the outdoors occasionally!
