Hey everyone,

I'm setting up my studio in an unusual room and am lookinf for advice on how to arrange it the best way.
The room has a round wall, i've put isolation in the round and put soundblock drywall on it (hell of a job in that round) and also put accoustic tape behind the wood skeleton.
I've put 4cm (1.57inch) accorub on the wooden floor and out 2cm (0.87inch) wood floor on that.
I don't know how bad this room is for production but i don't have another choice, I'm also concerned that (i'm gonna buy neumanns kh310) my monitors are too close to the wall 40cm (15.7inch)

The room is 8x5m (26x16.4feet)

Attached you can find pics, looking forward to some advice!

Greetings from Belgium

My KH310s are touching the front wall. (a tiny little rubber buffer to prevent scratching.)
Round is generally the worst shape acoustically, but it is behind the speakers so.....
Sound from behind you will hit the round and then be focussed on you like a parabolic mirror would do with light.
I would cover it in deep absorbtion.

or flip the room usage and put the drums and amps into the alcove - after putting in a bunch of absorption - scattered so it's not dead.
