Here are some drawings of my one-room studio (obviously I'm not a draftsperson). I do both tracking and mixing in this room. I've always had problems with my mixes not translating well when played on other systems. It has cost me a lot of time, work, money and frustration--not to mention hair loss--to make corrections. Tracking problems: Vocals and acoustic instruments always sound hollow. That's the only word I can use to describe it. Mixing problems: You name it, I got it. Mid-range is unfocused. The mixes end up hard and harsh sounding. Bass is unfocused. I need to push the bass in order to hear it when I'm mixing, but I've learned to back off because I know it will be too much when played on other systems. I've been contemplating treating this room for quite some time, but, because I don't know what I'm doing, have worried about making things worse. I almost had a professional acoustics engineer come out here, but I live in the boonies and just the travel expense alone was more than I could pay for the whole job. I've now read Ethan's article and have read some of the posts on this forum. I have to say that Ethan's article is EXCELLENT. I've read other books and articles on the subject, but the science and math was too much for me to grasp. My eyes would roll back into my head as I slipped into a coma. I would most appreciate some guidance about what kind of treatments I should use, and where I should put them in the room. Thanks for your help. I was thinking, Would it help if I posted a link to an MP3? I can do a quick mix of a song I just wrote and recorded. That way you could hear what a mix that sounds good in my room sounds like on your system. I won't make any adjustments to it for the outside world. Would that help?
