Recording Studio Acoustics

Proper acoustic treatment can transform a turbid room with poor mid-range clarity and unstable bass response into a clear and compact room.


Acoustics in the recording studio

Acoustics in recording and mixing rooms usually have several similar goals:

Prevent standing wave and acoustic interference

Reduce modal ringing and reduce reverberation time

Absorb or diffuse sound to avoid ringing and flutter echo

Improve stereo imaging

Acoustic products used in recording studios

Absorbers, corner traps or a mix of bass traps and diffusers usually provide the best overall effect.

Place a 2" or 4" thick sound insulation board at key reflection points to help reduce strong wall reflections.

Using Corner Bass Traps will help reduce low frequency reverberation time and flatten the frequency response in the bass range. Acoustic Foam Corner Bass Traps is an affordable low-frequency control option.

Or, an open 4-inch bass trap will also absorb low frequencies. These traps are usually installed slightly away from a flat wall, or in a corner. Our Corner Bass Traps and Open Back 4" Bass trap both provide full frequency absorption or low frequency absorption.

Studio Stackers is our portable middle panel, which provides a simple solution for bass capture. This unique gobo provides excellent sound control by absorbing spurious sounds and excessive bass waves.

Adding a diffuser to your room will help reduce comb filtering and flutter echo. Diffusers are most commonly used on the back wall behind the listening position, but they can also be used for the first reflection point on the wall or ceiling.

Finally, if your budget is limited, acoustic foam panels and acoustic foam corner bass traps are also affordable alternatives to sound insulation in the studio.
