Some acoustic tips

Great sound made easy

3 basic insights

Rockwool & fiberglass are the most efficient absorbent materials

Corners are the most effective location to absorb low frequencies

The best sound quality is the one you like

Most absorbent materials do a good job absorbing frequencies over 1000Hz. However, the only materials known to date of absorbing under 100Hz areĀ fiberglass, rockwool and Geopannel.

The corners of any room are where most sound waves end up at a certain point. If you need to reduce reverberation this is a great location to place your absorbent panels and turn them into bass traps. An absorbent panel placed in a corner will be 95% as efficient as a triangle bass traps made of the same material.

You are the only person who can judge if you like the sound of a given space. Some times we want a very dry room other times we like to record in a big cathedral.

4 simple steps for profesional results

Absorb
first order reflections

Set up bass traps

Reduce reverberation time

Scatter the remaining energy

Place absorbent panels where first reflexions happen, in both walls and roof if possible.

Place your absorbent material in the corners of your room.

Add absorbent panels in the empty spaces until you have the reverberation time you like

Fill the remaining surface with diffusers to reduce remaining resonant frequencies.

1 last step to have your perfect room

Last step, make specific Helmholtz resonators to trap any remaining resonant frequencies

Soon we will post a new tutorial to make your own resonator ;)
