    Room for another 1176 clone?

    Looks like (now berringer owned) Klark Technic has produced an 1176 clone. Priced $600 its in line with other mass produced clone gear. IMHO it's insulting to both KT and 1176 that this thing is out. Having not heard it or used it I can't comment on its quality or authenticity. To me it's just...

    Improving acoustics for cello

    I spent last summer working on a basement studio (installing a new ceiling of layers of think drywall on hat channel, making bass traps, and other treatment.) The space is now a quiet place to practice and record but it is too dead for my liking. As a cellist, I love playing and recording in...

    Free well regarded room mode calculator has mobile edition.

    this calculator has a great rep around the www. I find it super useful, and love the way it graphically depicts the hot/cold spots in a given set of dimensions. I'm not sure if the site itself automatically detects your on a mobile device or not, it seemed to know I was on a tablet, I don't...

    Paper on Hi Fi Speakers and Room Response

    andre linked this paper, and I thought it would be good to have over here, just for general interest. The discussion was based on 'house curve' where studios tend to have a response that has a boost in the lows and a dip in the highs. http://www.bksv.com/doc/17-197.pdf

    I thought this would make an interesting topic for a thread....it came up as a side topic in another thread so I thought I'd give it a life of its own... What is the worst room you have ever rehearsed / tracked / played in? It may even be an outdoor gig...I'm sure everyone has a story or two...

    Making the most of a small room

    I was mucking around today playing along with a track from the Antelope Zen demo stems from Sweetwater. I liked the room they originally recorded in and the original drummer was amazing. My room is 15 by 30 but has a low ceiling about 6 ft 3 I've made my room dead as the original surfaces...

    Is It Possible to "Over-Treat" a room?

    @Brien Holcombe @kmetal Is it possible to add too much treatment to a room? Okay... this might appear to be a dumb question, ( and Brien, I apologize because this query isn't what you would call to be a "precise" scenario) but because I'm a nice guy and you both like me - LOL - could you guys...

    Need input on room simulation

    Hi all.. I'm doing a rocker for this next song on the album I'm engineering... This is definitely not a "clean / studio" sound I'm after here. I'm looking for a sort of "trashy" vibe to it, particularly on drums, but... I'd rather use just one reverb on everything to emulate the vibe of a band...
