"I've got this annoying resonance at 126Hz!!"

bass traps and low frequency control

If you have this problem you'll know exactly what I’m talking about:

You sit down to work on a mix, you press play, and for a few seconds everything seems fine. 

But then the bass kicks in and just as it hits that one note, all hell breaks loose.

This super loud, super annoying resonance hits your ears.

It soon passes, you shake it off, and for a moment, you forget.

But then the bass hits that note again and your room just goes nuts! You press stop in agony and bewilderment.

What is going on!!?!? 

The room just seems to go crazy when the bass hits that one, exact frequency!!

You try again, but soon realize that this isn’t gonna work! 

It was fine with the last song, but it obviously didn’t hit that same note!

But this one…? 

I’m sure by now you know that what you are dealing with is a particularly bad case of standing waves.

And that it’s not always easy fixing this issue in a small room!

So what are your options if you have this problem in your studio?

And what causes it to be so bad in some rooms in the first place?

That’s what I want to show you in this video.
