Studio acoustics

Room acoustics for studios
Studio Talpa House of TalentTwo sound problems often arise when optimizing the acoustics of your studio: too many reflections from high frequencies (flutter echo) and standing waves from low frequencies. Too many reflections can affect both the spaciousness and the sound balance of the produced sound. You can counteract this problem by installing sound absorption, but make sure that too much sound energy is not absorbed. This can make a room sound "dead". Reflection (reverberation) is therefore necessary, but in moderation.

Standing waves are mainly located in the corners of a room. You can tackle this noise problem by installing sound-absorbing corner absorbers (such as Bass Traps). In order to make the studio sound sufficiently “dry”, we recommend that you add at least 60% of the floor space to acoustic products.

The basis for good acoustics
A good basis for studio acoustics is to provide approximately one third of the two side walls and the rear wall with Absorption panels. Choose a product of at least 25 or 30 mm thick for the side walls and an absorption panel with a thickness of 50 mm for the back wall.

In a second phase, you can provide the corners with Bass Traps. This may be necessary to make the low frequencies sound less 'humming' (reducing standing waves). In this phase it is often wise to also critically listen to reflections from the ceiling. The Silent Office Ceiling Islands are attractive and particularly effective absorbent panels. You can find more information about tackeling reverberation on our tips page.
