Designing Sound Discussion Group – Acoustics Webinar #2 (Room Treatment)

Acoustic_Fields_LogoIf 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’re going to try out something a little different this time…Google Hangout OnAir. What does that mean exactly? Well, no need to register for one thing. The big difference is that you’ll be able to come right here and watch the presentation directly 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 last month, and helping us understand out 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 (August 24th) at 1PM Eastern/10AM Pacific (U.S.A.) 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?

Designing Sound Discussion Group – Acoustics Primer

We’ve got our next webinar/live presentation scheduled, and it will take place on Saturday, July 20th, at 1PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific (U.S. time). Our presenter this time will be Dennis Foley, of Acoustic Fields. He’ll actually be doing two presentations for us here on the site.

The first, as noted in the title of the post above, will be an acoustics primer to help us better understand what’s happening in our rooms. The second, which will be scheduled for August, will be specifically about how to treat your room using commercially available acoustic absorption and diffusion materials. [I'm very much looking forward to that second one, as the room I work out of at home could definitely benefit from some better informed treatment.] The Acoustics Primer presentation is meant to prepare you for Room Treatment presentation. As such, I highly recommend you check out this month’s presentation. ;)

As always, the webinars hosted through Designing Sound are completely free. This will also¬†be recorded for those of you who can’t make it at the scheduled time. You can register for the Acoustics Primer¬†webinar here.

The direct link now appears in the top menu under the “Archives” tab. Just click on “Webinar/Discussion Group Recordings” to access the aggregation page.

If you haven’t checked out some of the previous presentations, they’re all available to you at the simple click of a mouse. ;)
