Get a great sounding room with a low end you can trust, and finally have that peace of mind when your mixes translate effortlessly.

  • Learn how to build your own professional looking bass traps.
  • Correctly place your panels using my no-brainer placement hacks.
  • Get control down to 40Hz while keeping your room from sounding "dead".

 If you’ve finished more than a couple of mixes in your studio, you’ve probably experienced something like this…


You spend hours mixing, getting everything leveled and processed just right. From everything you’re hearing out of your studio monitors, this is probably the best song you’ve ever mixed.

  • Vocals are pristine.
  • Bass is clear and controlled (and not clashing with the kick).
  • Instruments are locked in place like a seatbelt.

Basically… The track is BANGING.

So you take it out to your car and call up a couple of friends so they can check out the track that’s about to make you the next big thing. You press play and…

It’s a muddy mess.

Vocals are buried. Bass is non-existent… except for the times when it’s a buzzy, distorted disaster. And the other instruments seem to have forgotten what they were doing.

How could this possibly happen?

How could this track have gone from pro-level perfection in your room to amateur anarchy when nothing changed?

But here’s the thing… something DID change.

Your listening environment.

This is the bottom line:

Your room is lying to you.

So what can you do about it?

Read on, and I’ll tell you exactly what you can do about it.

What my students are saying...

"Had I had this course ten years ago, it would have saved me weeks or months of research and headache! It is well-founded, understandable and the implementation instructions are foolproof!"

- Joe L.

"I have to say this course has been a great experience for me. Your attention to detail and obvious time spent on this project is invaluable. Just perfect for me. So keep going . We need more of this amazing knowledge sharing."

- John O.

"I was aware of the difference between absorption and diffusion and could identify the pros and cons of both but always felt there was a big consequence for using one or the other. I had never considered combining both absorption and diffusion into one panel. That seems to be a great way to get all the pros without the cons."

- Shane K.

Jesco Lohan

After starting my adult life as an aerospace engineer (no seriously!) by training, I developed a love for mixing music.

To make a long story short, I took my education and training and started to apply it to the acoustic challenges in my own studio space. Once I had that down, I started a side business treating other people’s studios.

That was where I learned the ins and outs of acoustic treatment and how to turn just about ANY room into a great sounding space.

But it took me a lot of trial and error. A lot of hard-won experience.

Again and again, techniques failed, approaches didn’t work and measurements raised a huge question mark. But it also fast tracked my learning curve.

Now 10 years later, with countless studios under my belt, I know that only a handful of techniques and tools actually reliably improve how a small room sounds and more importantly: how mixes translate.

And that’s what I want to share with you.

Seriously, it doesn’t matter how big or small, normal or weird your space is, I’ve probably seen something like it, and I can show you how to get it treated in the most efficient and effective way possible.

Does this sound familiar?

Here’s something I’ve learned in the course of 10+ years in this space.

There’s a ton of information on acoustic treatment online. 

A simple Google search will plunge you down the rabbit hole of more articles, forums, YouTube videos, and Reddit posts than you could ever get through in your lifetime… And you still wouldn’t have actually treated your room at all!

In fact, I’d be willing to bet that you HAVE done this Google search for yourself. Probably more than once.

And if you’re like most of the people that I’ve talked to, it left you more confused than when you started. 

I mean, how can all these “professional” engineers at have such drastically different opinions on one issue? And how do you know which one is right.

People are dropping waterfalls and frequency response charts all over the place, but you still don’t know how anything sounds in their room.

The information is certainly out there (and some of it is even correct!), but the trick is getting all the different pieces lined up in a coherent, usable way.

This is the main problem with trying to find answers about treating your room online.

There is so much misleading information, contradictory opinions, and half-baked advice that it’s impossible to figure out what actually works.

Not to mention the fact that every minute, hour, and day you spend watching a video or reading a forum post is time that you’re not spending making music or actually getting your studio treated. 


So I guess it comes down to this question:

How much spare time do you have for this?

How much time do you have available to spend researching before you even get back to doing the work that you wanted to do before you fell down the acoustic treatment rabbit hole?

Can you afford to put off actually producing music while you try to put together a workable treatment plan from a bunch of random internet sources? How can you be sure it will work for your room?


What if I told you there was a better way…

A method that will: 

  • Save you hours and hours of searching, reading, and watching.
  • Give you a workable plan, no matter what kind of room you’re in.
  • Tell you exactly what to place where, with no guesswork.
  • Eliminate the fear of skipping steps and missing something fundamental.
  • All with minimal wasted studio downtime.



Here’s the deal, my friend…

The most frustrating thing I found when I first started treating rooms was the sheer amount of unsorted information. The endless jungle of opinions, seemingly inapplicable theory, industry jargon that sounded like a foreign language, and out of context “just do this” advice without any meaningful explanation whatsoever.

All of it seemed either way too simple, or way too complicated.

But worst of all, there was no plan, no structure, no system to bring it all together, nothing to connect the dots.

I didn’t want to just throw some foam up on the wall but I also wasn’t ready to do a full build-out from scratch either.

What I needed was someone who could just break it down in an easy to follow and understandable way…

Someone to just shoot me straight, to just tell it like it is…

So, I decided to do it myself.

That’s my goal with Acoustics Insider. To tell it like it is. To break it down to the essentials that actually work and to make it understandable and easy to follow.

To bring you to be the absolute best material out there for treating home studios.

To be THE go-to solution for busy audio engineers, working from home, who can’t just spend 100k on a room, but are willing to do what it takes with what they’ve got, to put in the work and get results.

If that’s you, then I’m 100% sure that this is the best solution for you out there.

And here’s why…

Acoustic Treatment Essentials for Engineers gives you the proven tools and techniques you need to control the bass and acoustically treat your home studio without having to become an acoustics guru. So you can stop thinking about sound, make translation a breeze, and get back to having fun in the studio.


This program will help you:

  • Finally control your low-end and properly treat your home studio.
  • Get that piece of mind about the sound in your room.
  • Save weeks to months(!) of painful research on materials and planning.
  • Understand the big picture so you can stop obsessing about details that don’t actually matter.
  • Cut through all the clutter and get all the relevant information in one place in an easy to understand way.
  • Avoid mistakes and wasted time by having a solid plan in place.
  • Learn the 80/20 of acoustic treatment to get you the results you want, fast.

In two highly condensed and easy to follow video courses I’ll lay out the exact method I’ve developed specifically to treat small home studios on a budget without skipping a single step.

The complete program is broken down into two main courses:

Build A Better Bass Trap (BBT)

Build your own modular, best bang-for-the-buck bass trap specifically designed to treat small-room low end issues and over-damping.

Absorber Placement Hacks

Learn my 6 proven panel placement hacks to quickly lay out a complete treatment plan for your room using the Better Bass Trap or an equivalent off-the-shelf bass trap.

"Man, I watched the first three modules last night. Wow! I wish I had this info when I was getting started treating my rooms a couple years ago! I think you presented the theory in such a clear and concise way. Well done! Looking at the topics in Module 4, I'm looking forward to watching the rest!"

- Scott B.

Here’s exactly what you’ll get inside the core video lessons of


Build A Better Bass Trap (BBT)

Module 1 - Why off-the-shelf Acoustics Doesn’t Work

Get a controlled, powerful low end and keep your room from sounding “dead”.

  • Learn where all your issues start (explaing the reverb time problem).
  • How to fixing your low-end once and for all.
  • Why typical diffusors kill your sound and what to do instead.
  • The truth about Off-the-shelf absorbers (spoiler alert: they actually do the exact opposite of what you want)
  • The secret of the Better Bass Trap (and how it overcomes the problems listed above)

Module 2 - How The Better Bass Trap Works

Take out the guesswork, avoid confusion, and save big by focusing on what matters.

  • Why super dense insulation material makes your problems worse.
  • The truth about how deep your bass trap needs to be.
  • Demystifying the “air gap” and superchunk questions.
  • How to build a bass trap that doesn’t make your room dead.
  • The 6 key design rules that make the “Better Bass Trap”.

“Make it as simple as can be, but not simpler.”

  • The last bass trap design you’ll ever need.
  • Tips and tricks to plan and build like a professional carpenter.
  • How to find the right materials in your area.
  • Hacks for getting the build done on limited time and a limited budget.

 A Special Bonus Module

Answering all the important questions from the core modules

  • How many Better Bass Traps you need and how to use them.
  • Ensuring your panels stay on the wall without causing unnecessary damage.
  • Before & After Treatment Examples: What results to expect in your room.
  • An easy-to-reference materials list to get you started fast.
  • Pro woodworking tips from a real carpenter
  • The opportunity to ask me any other questions you have

Not to mention…

Quick Reference Guides
& Step-by-Step Worksheets

If you’re right in a hurry and want to quickly touch up your knowledge, the first two modules include Quick PDF Reference Guides which condense down the essentials in just a few bullet points and illustrations.

On top of that ‘Module 3: “Planning Your Build, And Getting It Done”’, is designed around a dedicated 7-step worksheet… basically a check list of sorts where I walk you through the exact steps you need to take to find the right materials, design your panel, and plan your build.

By following this worksheet, you can’t fail!

Full Build-Along Video Construction Guide

In 'Module 4', I’ll show you the exact mechanics of actually building your panel. I’ve made sure to show every little detail, step-by-step. So if you want to, you can build your own panel right alongside watching the videos.

I’ll also show you all the tools you need (fewer than you might think!) and what tricks and construction hacks we discovered over the years to make the build process as reliable, quick, and painless as possible.

A Simple (But Ultra-Effective) Diffusor Front

You’re not going to find this anywhere else…

To keep the high-end lively in your room and eliminate any chance of overdamping and making it sound “dead”, I’ll show you exactly how to design and build your own Binary Amplitude Diffusor to insert into the front of the panel.

It effectively turns your panel into a combined basstrap-diffusor that gives you detailed control over how lively you want your room to be without causing any new issues.

While this might look random, you can't just slap on a random sequence of slats on an absorber and expect it to work...

But don’t worry, no math or engineering experience needed here! I’ve done all the heavy lifting already so it’s as easy as picking a suitable pattern for your particular panel size and available materials.

This alone is worth the cost of the entire program.

"I decided to go with diffusion on the bass traps I have made so far. The rest will be absorbers only. For me it was important to get the illusion of the room being bigger than it actually is. And it works! The ceiling height is only 2m… "

-Helge S.

But I’m not going to leave you hanging (get it?) after you build the panels…

+ Q&A Section 

Now because it can be hard to constantly reference and scroll through a screen while you plan your room, all the Treatment Plan Examples and the 6 Easy-to-Follow Placement Hacks are there for you to download as PDFs and print out to always have by your side.

Of course there’s also an extensive Questions & Answers section dedicated purely to placing your panels and asking questions about anything that might come up while you plan your own room.

How To Plan For A Combined Mixing And Recording Room

Since a lot of us are also recording in the same room that we mix in, I'll show you exactly how to correctly plan the acoustic treatment for a combined mixing and recording room, so you'll get the best of both worlds in your home studio.

Bonus - A Custom Treatment Plan Review From Me

Now even if you follow all the step-by-step instructions in the program exactly, it can still be daunting to finally say “go” and get started building. And then nothing is more helpful than getting direct feedback - from me.

So once you've gone through the steps, have designed your own bass trap and planned the placement of all the panels, send me an email with a run-through of what you’ve got and any open questions you have.

I'll send you a custom video response going through it all with you. I’ll give you my feedback to let you know if you're on the right track, if you've missed anything, or if there’s something you can simplify. Once everything is in place, I’ll “sign-off” on your plan so you know that you’re ready to get started.

How do I know this will work for me?

Acoustic Treatment Essentials for Audio Engineers is for you if:
  • You’re a busy audio engineer/musician with limited funds working from a small home or project studio.
  • You need a clear-cut way to control the bass and treat your room using proven techniques. Think 80/20.
  • You’re done wasting time digging through endless confusing blog posts and forums.
  • You want the information you actually need, delivered in a simple and digestible way by someone who’s gone down the rabbit hole and come out the other side.
  • You enjoy DIYing your acoustic treatment, but you want it to look professional.


This bundle is NOT for you if:
  • You love surfing the web and see assembling random bits of information as a fun puzzle to solve.
  • You hate to DIY and don’t like the idea of saving money by doing the work yourself.
  • You are treating something other than a studio for recording and mixing (like a Hi-Fi listening room).
  • You’re a perfectionist expecting to make your odd room with brick walls and a sliding glass door sound like the next Ocean Way with a couple of DIY panels.

Here’s a few examples of the results we’re getting with


Acoustic Treatment Essentials for Audio Engineers


Note that we didn’t even implement the whole treatment plan in any of the examples above because of budget constraints. You could take things even further, just by following the plan!

That’s the advantage of Absorber Placement Hacks (For Odd Rooms). You always get the best bang for your buck, no matter what your budget allows.

Here are even more examples:

In these examples you can clearly see the effectiveness of the BBT bass trap in action. Note that it works roughly down to 40Hz. THIS IS BY DESIGN! We aren't aiming for perfection. What we want is "good enough", while getting the best price-performance ratio. 

Now, at this point you’re probably asking yourself how much this costs…

We’ve already gone over all the videos, plans, PDFs, plan reviews, and Q&A opportunities that are included in this bundle…

But also consider the math involved in building your own panels… Check this out:

Buying ready-made panels of the quality you’ll learn to build could easily cost $200 a pop (and that might not even include shipping....)

But the material cost of building one panel yourself is only around $80!

So even if you include the price of this program, by building 3 of the panels yourself you’ve already saved money!

$297 + (3 x $80) = $437 vs 3 x $200 = $600.

Just imagine how much money you’re saving if you’re building 10, 20, or even more panels for your room!

And if you bought them ready-made you wouldn’t be getting the Absorber Placement Hacks framework which you can use to treat any and every new room you move into down the line.

Sure, you might also get free placement advice for your current room from the manufacturer, but - let’s face it - they are in the business of selling acoustic panels, not giving treatment advice. And it shows.

Of course you could also hire an acoustician to plan a custom treatment solution for your room.

But a decent acoustician will easily cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars, just for their service and time. And even then, especially at the cheaper end, they’ll often have questionable credentials and work ethics, not to mention a money-back guarantee.

Sometimes they’ll even just say outright: “Your room is too small” and drop you like a hot potato. If you’ve had that happen, you know what it feels like…

It doesn’t have to be this way!

With the Acoustic Treatment Essentials bundle you can save BIG by building yourself, but still get professional advice from someone who’s been deep in the weeds, AND apply it in every new room you move into in the future.

One more thing I want to say...

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years about getting your room to translate and the value that acoustic treatment brings to the table, it’s this:

The earlier you start, the better.

Mix translation is a process that grows with experience and skill. Getting your room treated won’t do that job for you. Instead, the power of acoustic treatment lies in fast-tracking everything you do - and I mean everything.

Your room and speakers are the main, and only, window into your work. Every single decision you make goes through this bottleneck. That’s why every improvement you make here pays off ten-fold down the line.

Not treating your room is like driving a race car with the handbrake on.

How long are you going to keep that up?

How long are you going to continue fighting your room?

Until the next time you end up with a smoking head after hours of digging through endless forum threads? Or the next time you do a “car check” and the low-end in your mix completely disappears?

It doesn’t have to be this way!

But you need to get started so the process of unimpeded mix translation can take its course.

Once you treat your room, the first thing you'll notice is just the sheer detail that you've been missing out on in the music in general. Small things suddenly jump out at you, even in music that you thought you knew like the back of your hand.

Then you’ll realize that the high end somehow sounds cleaner, tighter, less aggressive. Maybe even a little dull.. Until you realize that it was actually distortion from the room that made it sound artificially bright! Now it just sounds… clean. In a really nice way. And you can work for hours without getting tired and numb.  

Instinctively, you’ll work more quietly. You just don’t need all that volume anymore.

"One thing surprised me after getting the bass traps in place – I thought I would crank the volume louder, but the opposite happened. The music became more focused and clear, so I didn’t need to turn the knob even more, but actually down a bit. It’s like having a camera with lousy optics and then fit a really good objective which takes in more light, and you don’t have to crank the iso to take the picture, and the picture will be clearer."

- Helge S.

And the low-end! Suddenly it’s no longer just a big mush. You can clearly hear that distinction between the kick and bass, and how they relate and groove together.

Most importantly though, you’ll quickly get a big surprise when your hear how different some of your reference tracks now sound and how HUGE the difference between mixes can be. You’ll realize that often what translates well isn’t even remotely close to what you think “sounds good”.

And then you’re off to the races. THAT’s the key to getting your own mixes to translate.

Eventually, it all becomes second nature. You don’t even “think” about what it sounds like anymore. Your room becomes the ultimate reference point that you know you can trust and can always come back to.

You can have this.

Acoustic Treatment Essentials for Audio Engineers will show you how. Step by step.
