    Wonderful. I guess every room is a work in progress for a while but it’s sure nice to get off to an effective start.

      every room is unique,,, but worth the vested time and expense,,,

        Yes indeed @TheRockers:disqus! Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren

      Agreed @l_scott_knight:disqus! I’ve been in some strange apparently ‘treated’ rooms and my mixes did not translate at all! A couple of well known rooms in LA had this problem, I spoke to Jim Scott about one room in particular and we both agreed it was impossible to mix in, that room had so much work and design done to it! The point is there is many ways to skin a cat! Haha Barry is humble and here to help! So is John Brandt! Both amazing guys, very talented and extremely helpful! Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren

    I thought I would note,, that You can learn to mix and use the tools, Even though the room will affect the way you use an EQ, Compressor, get bad translation out of the room, it can allow one to learn the tools and what they hear ,,, 😀
    But if you want a decent room to mix in, treatment is pretty much a number one priority,,,

      Hi @TheRockers:disqus Agreed 100%! Once you know you’re room you make cuts and boosts that reflect the music not the room. Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren

    Hi Wozza,
    I have a room that is square. It’s my only room I can use in my house. I did draw out the dimensions and sent them to Vicoustic a room treatment company over here in Europe. Then sent back a plan with how and what to use which should work best in my ‘square’ room. But as Barry says a rectangle shaped room is better. But we have to make do with what we have. So, between my room and headphones I get by. ☺ Thanks for sharing. ♫♪♫

      Hi @plap-disqus-f2217062e9a397a1dca429e7d70bc6ca:disqus, did the company that gave you suggestions break up the room so it wasn’t square? Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren

        ..no. I gave them the exact measurements of the room. It’s not totally square but almost. There’s 0.6 metre difference.; 2.0 x 2.6 metres. That’s all I have to work with and a decent pair of headphones. I did the research on line and bought a book about 4 years ago now. Plus tips from Ian Shepard’s website , so, I’m good to go! ☺♫♪♫
