Acoustics

Apart from your experience as a sound engineer, the room you work in and the monitors you have are the major contributors to sound quality.

Without good room dimensions and acoustic treatment the room will negatively affect the choices you make.

Typical topics include:

· Calculating optimum room dimensions
· Standing waves and nulls
· Choice of speakers, speaker placement and sweet spot
· Acoustic treatment versus sound isolation
· Choice of materials and construction

More technical topics include:

· Membrane absorption
· Helmholtz resonators
· QRD diffusors
· Trinnov optimization software setup
· Reflection filters and other snake oil
