“I’ve done some treatment, but I need to fix the low end!”

bass traps and low frequency control

So I get some form of the following question with a regularity that I could set my clocks by it:

“I've done quite a bit of treatment in my room. I've got my speakers and my gear set up. I'm quite comfortable in the room and I've got enough panels to reduce the reverb and control early reflections.

But now I really need to fix the low end!” 

Are you in that same situation? Was that you who sent me that email? ;)

But it wouldn’t be surprising! 

I mean, the way we tend to start treating our studios is by looking online for some acoustic panels, putting them on the wall and then figuring out how to deal with our gear and speakers.

We tend to settle into that a bit, work with it until we realize: “You know what, the low end really doesn't work for me!”

And of course it’s also just a daunting task so it’s easy to keep pushing it up. 

But there's a fundamental issue with approaching it this way. 

Or rather, there's a mindset that I need you to get into in order to be successful on this journey of getting your low end under control.

Let me show you in this week’s video.
