Make small hole bigger with wood drill bits Existing small hole needs to be bored to bigger size how to or “How to make a small hole larger with wood drill bit” The Problem: You have an existing sized hole in a piece of rigid material, wood or metal and you need to make the […]
Different thicknesses of glass in recording studio’s are used in a mass/air/mass configuration but it is not because they may rattle at the same frequency. The thickness of the material, any material, will have a critical frequency. This is an acoustic hole that allows sound/vibration to pass thru as if no barrier existed.
Acoustic treatment solutions for a mixing room First you want to make certain that you have your listening position set up as an equilateral triangle to produce the best possible starting position. Your speakers/monitors should be placed at a starting position 38% from the front wall as a starting position. First, let me cover why […]
Making Acoustic Measurements
Maybe you have heard phrases like “noise floor, critical distance, room versus time, room versus frequency or reverb time”, and wondered how they might apply to your humble home recording environment.
One thing anyone who is involved in developing audio specific rooms will tell you is this: You have to test and sometimes retest to get a better understanding of what it is that is going on in your room. Then, and only then, can you properly approach the frequency issue in question with certainty that it can be subdued.
But you have to know how to test first. The linked pages explain with some ease how to approach this task giving a better understanding of some of the confusing terms you may have heard and bring to light a better understanding of just how to go about this much needed performance. These articles are a by-product of Dave Moultons interest and on going work in the field of acoustics, brought to you by Moulton Labs
Dave said: “This article was an attempt to enable home recordists to begin to think about and approach acoustical measurements. It’s more about discovery than anything else. Enjoy!”
