Decided to retackle the front wall acoustics this week. The control room is built into the basement and is all brick - with solid earth behind.
The only practical place to site the desk has been to utilise the bay, which of course acts as a parabolic reflector.
I'd improvised some trapping over the years but was never happy so redid it with 12" (300mm) behind the speakers and 6" (150mm) to the side. This follws advice Bill Mueller gave a few years ago that comes from mobile trucks etc.
A huge improvement, and the focus is on the front.
I can also now clearly differentiate any anomolies from the rest of the room as they are now not "fused" with the sound at the front. This enables me to ignore.
The back wall behind me will be next but is a bigger challenge... as it is a structural wall going up three stories and is quite resonant when you bang it with your fist!

Old coming out.

But where is the cat going to sleep?

>I may be up York soon to give some TLC to YSJ's L100...

Drop by, or give me a call and we can hopefully meet up for a sneaky half pint somewhere.
