Important thing to remember are:
Stereo room symmetry around your speakers.
- Glass windows or doors for communication.
Low-mid frequency absorption from 150 -550Hz.
High frequency absorption.
- Absorption across the rear of the control room wall.
- Whatever low frequency absorption you can fit in the space.
Things to avoid are:
- Having to go through the studio to get to the control room!! (I hate this because you always get interuptions as people move in and out of the studio)
- Creating studios with no visual communication. There is nothing worse than recording someone you can’t see.
- Big studios with a small pokey control room and visa versa.
So here are a few ideas that might start you off, use the selector for the different options.
