Hi everyone.
This is a pretty basic question I suppose.
Which wall is considered the ‘Front Wall’ in the recording studio ?
I have been doing a lot of reading and YouTubing, and the ‘Front Wall’ and ‘Rear Wall’ terminology has
come up a lot, regarding placement of acoustic treatment.

I believe the ‘Front Wall’ is considered the one directly in front of the monitor and listening position.
Is this correct? This makes the most sense, but y’know… it’s best to confirm!

Thanks everyone

J, Front wall is the wall you face when listening. You have two side walls, one front wall, and one rear wall.
