Can you measure diffusion in a home studio?


Have you got proper diffusion in your studio?

Have you ever wondered if it’s actually working and doing something good for the sound in your room?

Maybe you downloaded REW, took some sweeps at the listening position and are now staring at a mess of data wondering wtf it is you’re looking for?

Don’t worry, you’re not the first. 🙂

“Finding the needle in the haystack” is definitely applicable here.

It won’t really show up in the frequency response for example.

Or will it in the waterfall plot.

It also doesn’t help that you might actually be looking for the wrong thing.

That’s because diffusors actually act more like absorbers than you’d think.

Let me explain in this week’s video.



"How to correctly place your listening position and speakers, no matter what room you're in."

  • Find the correct wall to face in your home studio
  • Optimize the low end and minimize reflection effects
  • Get the distance between wall and speakers right
  • Get a stereo image like on really good headphones
