Use Acoustic Treatments To Improve Your Recording Space




If you've ever recorded at home then you have had one or all of these experiences:


  • Soundproofing - Controlling sound IN or OUT
    • External noise spilling onto your recording
    • Performing or monitoring music and annoying neighbors or family members
  • Sound Conditioning - Managing the characteristic response of your recording space
    • The environment amplifies unwanted noise within your space
    • Hot frequencies in your room
    • Unwanted natural room reverb
      • long decay time
    • The tonal balance of the space colors the sound in an unpleasant way


Acoustically treating your recording environment can make a world of difference to the quality of your recordings. While acoustic treatments don't stop the sources of noise, you can change how your recording environment responds to noise. With sound conditioning, you get to shape the characteristic response of your studio space.


Yes, with AI you can now remove a lot of room reverb, but ultimately it is better to not record unwanted reverb in the first place.


You might have even tried some previous DIY acoustics with egg cartons and similar to reduce unwanted sound, without much of a clue of what you are doing.


Below we've pulled together an introductory article outlining the fundamentals of acoustics as applied to recording studios:
