I have been a Dj for a while now, and over the years have gradually upgraded my system to now be limited by the rooms I play in. Over the last year I have settled at one location and virtually installed my system in the club. I now run sound for live bands and want to continue my learning but I find myself in a room that to my understanding so far has a lot of reverb. The audio sounds great but i'm sure it could be better. My problem is with the Bands, I am trying to lower the total volume of the room and allow for Fx to be added in. I have a vocal reverb on but no matter how high I turn it up I really makes no change. Originally I thought it was me, Untrained ear, But now I believe it is because of the excessive reverb in the room. I want to create a great sounding room with a comfortable volume that will make for a better experience for everyone.
I have all the needed test equipment for Room Eq. I have ran a few test at home with a few panels but have yet to get a good grasp on the program. I also have studied what I could on Acoustics and how to Build Panels, Bass Traps, and Diffusers.
Looking for help on where to start. To my understanding installing acoustics will lower the over all Db reading as well as clear up the sound in the room allowing me more control over the Fx on all the vocals and Insturments. Room is Approx 100ft x 50ft x 15ft. Current audio setup is 4 Qsc K12 as PA 2 QSC K12 as monitors all flown at front of stage. Behringer X32 with S16 digital Snake on stage.
My initial plan consists of : There are three large windows that for now I will cover with producers choice curtains, make 12 panels with 3" Roxul and hang around the top of the walls were they meet the ceiling due to they will really not be noticed and plenty of space in that area. Next would be 2" 705 panels scattered in the ceiling. There is a dropped ceiling kinda setup with beams running trough but no tiles or anything. The upper area is brown so I feel all the panels will blend in and not really be noticed if covered in a brown fabric.
This is all based on research from Youtube and forums. Would appreciate any info you have to offer.
