Re: Where to place acoustic panels for spoken voice recording?

Right! Now I'm considering abandoning the foam, and just building a pvc pipe frame to support my duvets with slightly more elegance! Anyone done anything like this? I've seen a few youtube vids about it, but I often wondered if some kind of unpleasant resonance might somehow build in all that piping...

Re: Where to place acoustic panels for spoken voice recording?

Even though panel pins would only cause minimal wall damage, I think I'm going to go with Command Strips - especially if I'm likely to find that these panels are less effective than my current duvet mess. On that subject, I know the duvets would be better at absorbing lower frequencies than the acou...

Re: Where to place acoustic panels for spoken voice recording?

Good advice, thank you!

Yes, I just need to get cracking.

My first experiment is to get the panels up in a way which won't damage the walls.
I'm going for Command Strips.
Anyone tried this method?

Thanks

DUPLICATE Where to place acoustic panels for spoken voice recording?

Hello folks I originally posted this in a different subforum and got some good answers, but it should really be here so I've reposted to get some further perspective. I have a very crude bedroom recording studio set up for recording my audio-description voiceover. At the moment i have duvets messily...

Re: Where to place acoustic panels for spoken voice recording?

Forgive my ignorance, but where are these 'primary areas'? Where the poster is at the moment? But a larger area? Or are smaller 'spot' areas more effective? (so about the size of the poster there)? The corner areas? The corners from the ground up, or just the 3axis corner areas at the top? Just head...

Re: Where to place acoustic panels for spoken voice recording?

Thanks very much!
When you say 'so that means the side walls of your alcove, the back wall and possibly the ceiling of the alcove', do you mean complete coverage of those areas?
Thanks

Re: Where to place acoustic panels for spoken voice recording?

Oh no, really?
It's just over 3 inches thick and pretty tough - I know there's better out there but I thought this would be ok.
I'm going to try it anyway.
Good tip about the frame with space behind, but I'm still looking for guidance as to actual placement.
Any thoughts?

Thanks

Hello folks I have a very crude bedroom recording studio set up for recording my audio-description voiceover. At the moment i have duvets messily propped up on the walls around my desk and I put pillows on conspicuous desk surfaces to try and improve the room sound. My desk is up against a wall, so ...

Re: E-mu Patchmix ASIO/WAVE

Ok, that last problem I mentioned was my fault - I'd forgotten to put an updated VST plugin dll in the Steinberg plugin folder. I've now done that. And I can now open Play Orchestra in Cubase - AND - have mediaplayer playing. ie simultaneous playing of asio and wave sources. This is very good! But t...

Re: E-mu Patchmix ASIO/WAVE

I just tried something which threw up interesting results: I opened cubase and imported an mp3 and started it playing, so here was something that would normally come through Mediaplayer, now coming through asio. I then opened media player and started playing an mp3 there. Both played simultaneously!...

Re: E-mu Patchmix ASIO/WAVE

Hello again Tex
Are you using Windows 7 64bit?
I've explored all the various sessions - no luck.
I just tried the legendary virgin reinstall - no luck. :frown:
I don't know what on earth the problem could be.
Any other suggestions would be incredibly welcome!
Thanks
