Here is a long overdue update. I've been busy using the room because it feels, and most importantly, sounds great! I've recorded acoustic guitar, electric guitar and vocal in there, all of which have sounded good. Moreover, the mixes I'm currently working on are sounding great and it's fantastic being able to hear all the low end extension.

I finished the treatment of super chunks across the long wall/ceiling intersections and made some furniture - as small as possible.

Since then, I've been working offline with Stuart doing some digital tuning to help even out the response, as I'd kinda maxed out on treatment for the space.

Stuart will hopefully be able to explain the work we've been doing and show with some nice graphs the improvement it's made to the sound of the room.

The only problem I faced is there are some more vibrations in the right hand soffit wall then the left, and I also noticed that the pretty purple covers I made for the speaker air vents were vibrating at certain frequencies, because bass from the 'passive radiator' at the back of my Mackie monitors is also coming out of the air vents. I've removed these purple covers for now.

I'm very pleased with the outcome. It took about 3 months of mainly evenings and weekends, and about £3000, much of which went on rebuilding and upgrading the door to outside.
