One of the odd things about home studios is..
that they’re slightly odd.
Who here doesn’t have to deal with at least SOME random asymmetric feature in their room, like an inconvenient window, door or wall?
But how large is the impact of the typical asymmetric oddities in our...
Are you hearing your low end properly?
Or there's some imbalance there that’s messing you up?
Maybe you've even done some measurements that revealed some bad dips in the frequency response.
Or your speakers are just really small and you want some more low frequency extension to...
Let's talk about flush mounting speakers.
This is where you basically build your speakers right into the front wall of your studio.
Maybe you've seen this around, especially from high grade mastering studios.
And if you've asked about speaker placement on some forum, somebody surely...
Tube traps. VPRs. Helmholtz resonators. Membrane traps.
There are a lot of options when it comes to controlling the low end in your studio.
But we hardly ever see them pitted against each other.
That’s because the effort involved is HUGE.
And so much can go wrong.
But someone who...
In my opinion there's one development in speaker system design that has largely been ignored by studio monitor companies:
Matching speaker directivity to a given space.
It's a little weird.
Designers of big venue sound systems have been developing and refining this technique for about 30 years...
It’s time for another YouTube Comments Knowledge Bomb!
As always, this is where I answer your questions from the YouTube comments.
Of course we’ve got chapters, so feel free to binge the whole thing, or jump to whichever question tickles you the right way first.

Have you been in this situation:
You are mixing in your room, maybe with some basic treatment, and whenever you take your mixes outside of the studio, they turn out a little bit harsh, just a bit too bright?
There's just a little bit too much high end in your mixes.
How does unavoidable furniture, even things like amps, guitars, bass, et cetera, affect the acoustic response of the room?
It's quite hard to say “this” does exactly “that”.
Rooms are way too unique to make that kind of assessment.
And small rooms with a lot...
Have you ever wondered if the acoustic treatment in your studio actually works, and if it does, how well?
It's kind of difficult to judge that because on one hand it's quite difficult to actually analyze your room and understand what's going on with and without the treatment.
And then what goals...
Last week I showed you a new online tool to calculate room modes/standing waves in odd room shapes.
It's called Audieum Model, it's super impressive, and if you missed that video you can check it out here.
As you can imagine, it takes a little more than the basics to put something like this...
When was the last time you tried to figure out what is causing those nasty bass issues in your studio?
Two hours ago?
Like, right now?
Somehow it seems like it’s an on-going, never-ending problem..
And if you’re anything like me, you landed on one of a gazillion available...
If you are into recording vocals, I’m sure the question of setting up a vocal booth has crossed your mind.
But then again maybe you’ve already done a significant amount of treatment with bass traps and panels in your room, and so you are wondering:
Is it actually worth it?
