    Reverb Hell... (In control room)

    hi ive just been given a job as a producerl. and basically the studio of the record label that im with the control room is a room with out any acousitc treatment and its quite high also. and its made out of breeze blocks. and when you listen to a track threw monitors or just clap theres alot of reverb created by the room. i was thinking if i brougth conventional sponge/foam cuts and placed them around places in the room would that help and where and how should i place them around the room?

    If anything, start with the low end. That's were most of your problems is going come from. Foam isn't going to take care of that.

    Agreed - If there is no low-end management, take care of that first and foremost. After that, if there's still a problem with excessive ambience or flutter, at least you'll be able to zero in on it.

    A "foam party" is shooting in the dark while missing the target every time.

    Nothing on bass trapping there - (well, maybe a little on lower mids - LENRD's are pretty worthless for the "real" problems in the low end).

    Hehe yeah I was aware it wasn't loaded with info on bass traps as I grabbed that link - I'll leave the acoustic treatment specifics in your capable hands there John

    Well, it does mention bass control - It's just that their "bass control" products aren't exactly "bass control" products if you catch my drift...

    Hi yeah im thinking of getting one of these. There both pretty budget and the control room isnt that big so advice on which one to get and what they would do and posistioning of them would be great.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Neither is going to do anything for the low end inherent to a smaller room. The foam corner-type bass trap shouldn't even be allowed to be called a "bass trap" as they *hardly* handle even the lower midrange with any effectiveness.

    When you're in a smaller room - Less than 200 sq. ft., it's even *more* crucial to have the low end under control than in a larger room where it has some "space."
