Re: Venue Acoustic Help

This is an interesting project, Gregory. If you can (if you're allowed?) please take some pics of the before / during / and after, along with some measurements to see how things turn out. I wonder if you could convince a crowd to suffer through a few minutes of measurements one night when the place is full, to get a good baseline.

Reverse phycology is your best friend here, tell them that the entire band will sound way better if they do use them plus I know a number of good drummers who say the digital kits dont feel any different to play than a normal kit it just looks different.

Gregory Place I have one band that has digital drums and yes they are amazing. But not sure even if i bought a set the other bands would want to go there.

Re: Venue Acoustic Help

You need a set of digital drums, so much better to mix and they are so good now you don't need to break the bank anymore to buy them.

Re: Venue Acoustic Help

My biggest problem is volume "db" drums are so loud even with people in there. Drummer gets excited then guitar amps go up, vocals get drowned out. You know the story!!! I'm hope with the right acoustics it will lower the over all db reading and make the mix easier as well as be a more comfortable experience. I know a drum shield could help but have yet to find a dummer that wants to play be hind a shield. I guess a good question would be how much treatment would be needed to lower the overall volume of a room 5000sqft with current db at 105-112. Is this even possible.

Re: Venue Acoustic Help

I bet the acoustics change dramatically when people are in there. Hard to get a sound check done properly when it's empty but you got to live with what you have.

Re: Venue Acoustic Help

no seating near front of stage. Room is a 100ft x 50ft rectangle. wood floor, 6 or so large windows. Stage in centered on the 100ft with dance floor in front no seating, 9 comp pool tables on one side, wood table and chairs on other side for dining area and l shaped bar all wood. There is pretty much 0 absorption without people.

Re: Venue Acoustic Help

It's a good start, do you have hard seating or soft padded seats in the close proximity of the stage? Seating with both material on the seat and back of the chair will also help particularly when the room is less than full.

Re: Venue Acoustic Help

That is my plan. I have the material to build panels for the back walls behind band as well as bass traps in the ceiling. Also ordered producers choice blankets to cover the windows opposite the stage that the speakers point toward. Hopefully this will make a notice differce.

Re: Venue Acoustic Help

Get the walls around the back of the stage lined with acoustic panels first.
