Re: First time n00b room measurement - help appreciated

Hello Vinnie,

Never really addressed the furnishings i.e. desk from your post over on JS but yes this would eventually come up. As SAC mentioned the large desk stems from the large consoles seen in major studios. Thes mixing desks are usually slanted surfaces, hence the suggestion that you tilt the desk, which I know a few people have in fact done with success, the idea being to redirect first reflections from the desk surface away from making a direct path to your ears. The larger the desk, the more problems these reflections will cause.

Besides the absorbers on the walls, you may also place a couple, (or 1 larger one) over head - this is usually refered to as a cloud. If this cloud has a solid (16mm plywood, plasterboard or fermacell) backing, it can help in adjusting the local LP floor/ceiling mode, and if angled down at the front can help in redirecting reflections from the ceiling.

To answer your question, soft materials are used only for treatment, isolation requires mass - but this can be (to an extent) in the form of a gobo or specifically the partition we mentioned.

Isolation requires MASS as well as the mitigation of ALL flanking vectors.

This is a subject far and above the internal treatment of a room and is absolutely not a trivial subject (nor one that can be addressed cheaply...)

Curtains () or other materials that are used for the internal control of reflections are utterly incapable of making any significant contribution towards the control of sound ingress/egress from the space.

And the computer stands to which we refer are typically found under searches for mobile computer or mobile laptop carts or mobile medical computer (or laptop) carts. Costs range from about $100 to several hundred dollars.
