    Is this OK for recording and/or mixing? Wooden floors with bass traps in the corner and Auralex acoustic foam on some walls?

    Thanks for any information.

    Sure it is...............My Tracking/Mixing room(mine is one big room) has a wood floor. If I want it live I leave it as is.....Need to dead'in the room some ,I got a thick rug I put down. I put a hardwood floor in my room a few years back and love it.

    YMMV, Peace..........Scoobie

    Absolutely. I like it better than a carpet floor. You may want to consider some additional absorption on the ceiling too. Look up "Reflection-Free Zone"

    Live floors, diffused / dead ceilings. It's a wonderful thing.

    And of course, as many bass traps as you can fit...
