We used this weekend to add some much needed acoustic treatments to our B-Room mixing/editing suite. This additional workstation has become crucial, as we are working towards making the record making process as efficient as possible in times of lower monetary and time budgets. The B-Room allows us to work double barrel, making edits, comps and "In The Box" mix recalls without disrupting the workflow in the A-Room.
Especially the latter requires listening conditions that allow us to make informed decisions. The burlap wrapped fiberglass panels reduce reflections and filter overrepresented frequencies from the walls, floor and ceiling so we're actually hearing what's coming from the speakers. That being said, the field of acoustics is a complex science, but it's remarkable how much of a difference even inexpensive treatments can make to improve your listening environment.
Thanks to our interns for all their help building frames, cutting burlap and drilling holes to mount these panels securely. This is all about sound, but it looks pretty cool too!
