Quantum Acoustic Sound Treatment?

Member for

Has anyone checked out this video? I wonder if it's an actual breakthrough or just smart re branding of treatment... I suppose the end result is the most important thing.. If people think it sounds good.. it is.. but it seems like there's some fancy marketing mumbo jumbo going on..

There's some cool listening examples and ideas in the video. Interesting stuff to listen for and pay attention to.

@Brien Holcombe , @kmetal @Boswell , @pcrecord , @audiokid , ... and anyone else who may be interested:
"Physicists at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have experimentally demonstrated a system capable of perfect sound absorption. Acoustic waves go in, nothing comes back out. At all."


Sharing My Acoustic Treatment Build from Cubicle Wall Insulation!

This story is crazy and long, so I'm going to summarize it. Seven years ago I was able to recover some Owens Corning 703 from four cubicle walls that were stashed in a basement at an old factory job. OC-703 is the bomb for broadband absorbers, as we all know, so you know I was thrilled when my boss said I could have them.

Live/Tracking Room DIY Diffusion/Scattering Acoustic Treatment & Material Options

In my opinion (i think most will agree) that after the original source (instrument, amp, ect..) the room that the instrument is being tracked in is the first stage of EQ.

Given that idea I believe you want a general multi-purpose tracking room to have a tight bottom end and bright highs. I'm aware that this is subjective and a matter of taste, application and of course room dimensions.


Home Recording Studio Acoustic Treatment

Member for

I need help with choosing the right acoustic treatment in a home recording studio. The room don't need sound isolation, I need to control flutter echo/first reflections and maximize the acoustic potential of the room, mainly to record drums/acoustic guitar. I think I'm looking for bass treatment in two corners and overall 25% of the room covered for a half-dry recording/listening space.

Overall; I don't know what treatment is necessary and where.

The height of the room is 2,20m,

Acoustic wall treatment or portable vocal booth (i.e. Auralex MaxWall)?

I would like to start recording vocals (just for fun/hobby) and I want to get the best sound possible. The instrumental tracks have already been mixed, I just need to add vocals. I've read some of the threads here, and I know that preventing unwanted reflections is ONE of the key elements paramount to a good recording. The room I have is probably awful (sonically) being that one wall is almost entirely mirrored glass, but I dont I thought I'd post the dimensions and a few pics to get some advice on the best (and most cost-effective) way to get a good vocal recording.

Hello everyone, my name is Gianluca and I'm writing from Italy.
I turned a basement into a recording studio, but I need a hand to the acoustic treatment.
Floor, ceiling and walls are covered with wood. Under the wood there is a layer of lead, polystyrene and moisture resistant material.
The dimensions are:
Length: 4m
Width: 2.56mt
Height: 2.7 meters
I would like to build all by myself (DIY) with a budget of EUR 800

I hope I have said it all.

Room Placement of my Acoustic Treatment?

Member for

Hello all,
I just bought 9 pieces of rigid fiberglass board, 3# density (Johns Manville 814). 24"x48"x2".
I have lots of acoustically transparent burlap to wrap the panels in, and mounting hardware, for walls, corners, and ceiling.
So now the question is, how should I distribute it? I have 9 panels to work with, but that number will decrease if I really must double stack for bass traps.

I have a slightly odd-shaped room, but I do have a SketchUp file, with a rough sketch, and dimensions.
