Is there anyone that can comment on my plans in regards to reatment of the room.
As shown in my latest scetchup for my treatment planes:


I know this is probably not the answer you're looking for, but I'd highly suggest you read this book (be stoked that this link allows you to get it FREE!)

www.roletech.net/books/HandbookAcoustics.pdf

In it, it describes pretty much everything you need to know about how sound "works" and how you can approach treating your space. With the knowledge you'll acquire from the book, you will have a great chance at being able to fix any issues that pop up during your acoustic measurement steps.

Hope that helps!

Greg

Thanks Gregwor for commenting.

You are somewhat correct. Your answer was expected but I was hoping that someone would "pass forward" their knowledge without me haven to take a “degree” in Acoustics treatment :wink: … I guess its no way around it. Thanks allot for sharing the book. Much appreciated!!

Happy new year!! :)

The author of the book is passing foward his knowledge with you having to take a degree in acoustics :D

If you asked me to share my knowledge with you, I couldn't do a shorter and more precise version than the author. It really is to the point. There are a few "dry" parts that aren't super fun to read, sure. But, starting at the beginning and reading through it solidifies an understanding of acoustics that will allow you to apply it to the treatment stage of your build. There's really no other way to jump to the treatment stage without the fundamental background. The book is precise, short (considering), and it has great relatable applications throughout that make the concepts click.

Happy new year to you as well!

Greg

Once again; can't help you with any of your questions. Only want to say that it looks good! Did you get the level of sound isolation you were aiming for? Have you measured it?

Hi Rain

I have not measured the sound insulation yet. I have engaged a few hours from stuart to help me with some of the threetment design. When he is finished I will build it first before doing any other measurements. As of now I have been finishing the mixer desc. I wil post something soon.

Here is an update of the studio mixer table. Got some help from my dad building this one based on my SketchUp drawings. I’m very happy how it turned out. :yahoo:

Its basically only 22 mm Chipboard floor boards. The front is finished with foam rubber covered with a leather type fabric.
As of the paint its a regular black/grey tough interior paint, nothing fancy :)

I’m finally back again after some time planning and discussions with Stuart for the next steps in regards of tuning my studio. I had engaged some hours from Stuart to help me out with the design. The help I got from him was amazing and I have now started the building process. The work to be done is soffit-mount speakers, side walls slots, the back wall super chunks and finishing the fabric mount on the walls. I have attached some pictures below. More updates coming soon.
