I have read several articles about treating the studio for proper acoustics, and it confuses the hell out of me. Just when I think I have a plan, I read another article that turns my brain to mush. This pertains mostly to monitoring and mixing as opposed to tracking... My home studio is in my basement, and so far, I have no "wall treatments" other than felt pennets that my kids have hung up! I am not even really sure where to begin...bass traps? Acoustic tile behind my monitors (which are fairly close to the wall)...how do I decide? The room is approx. 15 ft. x 35 ft., with the monitors pointing toward the 15 ft. direction. I have heard that at the absolute minimum I should get a couple of bass traps, a couple of tiles behind the monitors, and one or two above my head (on the ceiling) in my normal listening position. I have my monitors (Event 20/20 bas) on nice monitor stands, pointed at an equilateral triangle with my hear, etc...no subwoofer. Do I need to get software, enter my room dimensions to find the standing waves, etc...??? I am pretty lost here! Any help would be appreciated.
