    This has been my 'quit smoking' project for the last 10 months. It's been a very rewarding project. I'm glad it's finished, but have to admit getting there is just as fun.

    Very cool! A suggestion: get some low frequency absorption in there too.

    You know, the LF only seems to be an issue upon playback when NOT sitting in the mix position. Otherwise playing live sounds fine.

    LOL unfortunately during playback is when you don't want the LF. I'm currently bass trapping the hell outta my room.

    Maybe one day I'll trap the room, but for now I don't think it's worth the time and money to fix the few hot spots. Besides the room sounds pretty good! :D

    Killer looking place you got there!!!

    Dont forget to use difussion in addition to absorbtion.

    Just my $0.02

    That is pretty cool! I like the use of creative design. Someday I want to cover the floor of a room with 4" acoustic foam. Just too lay on, watch movies and stuff. :lol:

    I think the bigger problem with bass isn't so much when your room sounds extra bassy to your ear, but when the bass waves bounce around in a way that they cancel frequencies a bit, and confuse what you think you need to mix in. = muddy mix in your car.
  9. I like the wall and ceiling colors you chose. What are they?
  10. marknrox

    Black and Grey.

    Just Kidding...

    I'm sorry, I couldn't pass that one up! :lol:

    Thanks Brian, I'm very indecisive, and labored over colors for a few weeks!! It was from the Lowes' American Traditions colors. But I just don't remember the names right now. I chose the darkest charcoal that sorta matched the foam and the wall was from the same 'family' a few shades lighter, sorta confederate blue/grey. Now you've got me curious. I'll see if I can get the names for you.
  12. I've been very indecisive about colors to use with charcoal/burgandy foam, which is why I asked. You made a great choice. Somehow, I knew you were going to say black and grey. If you can get the color numbers (you know, the ones that they go by to actually mix the paint, typed on the sample) that'd be even cooler. Nearest Lowe's is over 100 miles away and gas is expensive. I get an employee discount at Wal-Mart, though, and they've done a good job at matching paint so far. Plus, its a lot less to spend on gas.

    Sure thing Brian, I'll see if I can get those for you. I'm very happy with the colors!

    Hey Brian sorry for the delay, it's been pretty busy since the hurricane.

    The colors are from Lowes American Traditions:

    Ceiling: Hematite 4006-2C

    Walls: Drizzling Mist 4006-1C

    Good Luck!!

    Go towards the light.............build the bass traps (hint: been there, done that, worth it).

    Where do I put them?
  17. Reggie

    Reggie Well-Known Member

    Corners, mang. I see some blank ones on the wall behind the drums that would fit some nicely. Every corner would be ideal.

    Also the wall behind you, and ceiling above mixing position. Standing waves don't discriminate between horizontal or vertical surfaces.
  19. No prob on the delay man, I'm not in that big of a hurry. I understand the problem with the hurricane. Tornadoes are the thing here.
