Does your room have an angled wall or sloped ceiling?
Have you ever wondered if that could actually HELP with standing waves, maybe by reducing the chance of them happening in the first place?
After all, standing waves form between parallel surfaces. So breaking that geometry should have some...
What do onions and studio acoustics have in common?
They're layer over layer and while it might look fine on the outside it might also be rotten to its core.
Unfortunately it's not even that exaggerated.
And if you keep this concept in mind the next time you look at your room's frequency...
Cheap bass control.
Is is possible?
For us home studio folks, money is always tight.
But we NEED to be able to work with low end properly. We need some way to get that sh*t under control.
We just can’t keep chasing our low end tails endlessly (literally!) on every mix, when we’ve got...

Maybe you’ve noticed that I finish each of my Youtube videos with the phrase:
“Let’s keep learning to trust our ears.”
But if you’re anything like me, at some point you’ve probably also thought that that’s really dumb advice.
What does “trusting...
Can a room be too BIG to be a music studio?
We talk about rooms being too small all the time.
With it come the typical problems.
Like standing waves messing up your low end, reflections messing up your stereo image, and in general the lack of space for.. anything really.
But how does that change...
There’s one aspect to acoustic treatment that can be hard to grasp at first.
And that’s just how much of it you actually need to hear a proper difference in your room.
It also doesn’t help that “how the room sounds” is actually a pretty bad indicator of how well you...
Are you thinking about upgrading your studio desk?
Maybe you’re even toying with the idea of an angled desk to get rid of the desk reflection?
Well, there are some good and some bad reasons to upgrade your desk.
In my opinion getting rid of the desk reflection isn’t one.
Have you messed around with ChatGPT yet?
Do you remember what the very first thing was that you asked it?
I asked it to tell me a joke about psychedelics and dog paws. Here it is:
"Why did the dog take psychedelics?
To get a different paw-spective."
High-five for technology.
But THEN I...
When you go shopping for insulation material for your bass traps, it usually comes in these big rolls or packs, sealed in plastic.
It’s a pretty convenient package!
Why not just leave them as they are and stack them up in the corners?
That will also keep any fibers from flying around and...
Have you tried Room EQ Wizard to measure your room any time lately?
Then you've probably noticed that just taking the measurements is one thing.
Although even doing only that plenty of things can trip you up.
But it’s a whole other thing to know what you should look at and actually analyze...
When was the last time you optimized your workflow in your studio?
Because if you want consistent results (aka the mix that translates every time), nothing is going to get you there apart from an absolutely rock-solid, proven process of steps from start to finish.
There’s a reason that the...
