Case Study: 80/20 acoustics in a small basement (measurements)

real-world case studies

One thing that is REALLY hard to judge when you first dive into the endless pit that is studio acoustics:

How much treatment do you actually need?

And how much are you actually getting for your money?

Like.. how well can you actually expect it to work when you say, put 12 panels in your room?

As it turns out, that's not an easy question to answer. At least not for your typical small home studio where statistical acoustics quickly goes out the window.

If you've followed me for a while then you'll know that you'll probably need more than you first anticipated.

But what does that look like in practice?

In this week's video I want to show you what a real 80/20 solution to treating a small basement studio looks like, and what results you can expect.

And yes, I'll show you all the measurements as well.
