Have you ever posted on a forum (or read someone's post) about how to get started treating your room, and the echo chamber responded:
"You gotta measure your room first!"
I keep reading this over and over again, and every time I think:
Great, another soul lost down the rabbit hole. See you in six months!
If there's one piece of advice I vehemently disagree with, it's that you should measure your room before you do anything else.
Over and over again I just see it lead to confusion, overwhelm and time wasted.
Sometimes it keeps people from getting started with anything at all, scared to make a mistake and screw everything up. While getting started and gaining experience is THE most important thing you can do when it comes to acoustics!
So for your pleasure, a slight rant from my side, but also how to think about measurements and include them more productively when treating a home studio DIY style:
