Reflections in Your Control Room

Guest Contribution by Dennis Foley

The reflections in your control room represents the sound of your room. What sound do you ideally want from your control room? Do you want all the direct sound or straight line sound from your speakers? Do you want to include the sound of the reflections from the room in your mix? If so, how much of the room sound do you want?

Room sound is reflections. Reflections from your room walls, floor, ceiling, and rear wall are all part of the sound of the room. It is present in all rooms and must be managed correctly, if you are to hear all the sounds in your mix. Lets identify the problematic room boundary surfaces that produce these reflections.

Designing Sound Discussion Group – Room Acoustics Webinar Rescheduled!


It took a little while, but we’ve finally been able to get this follow up webinar rescheduled for this Saturday!

If you’ve attended any of our previous Designing Sound Discussion Group presentation in the past (and have been anxiously awaiting the follow up presentation to last month’s with Dennis Foley from Acoustic Fields), you may be wondering where the registration link is. We believe we’ve ironed out the kings for the Google Hangout OnAir, and we’ve rescheduled it for this Saturday, at 1PM (U.S. Eastern Time). The webinar is still free, and you’ll be able to watch it right here on Designing Sound!

If you haven’t attended a Discussion Group before, this is a great one to start with! Dennis will be building on the presentation he gave in July, and helping us understand how to choose and place room treatments. This is a vital skill for any of us who don’t have the luxury of working directly with acousticians or acoustic architects. So, come right here this Saturday and be ready to learn. There will be time for Q&A at the end, which we’ll handle via comments in the presentation post and Twitter hashtags. As with all previous Discussion Groups, a recording will be available shortly after the presentation has ended. If you missed the first one, why not check it out right now?
