Today, we have another video looking at our progress with our new studio build!
We are changing a small kids bedroom into a studio, and showing you guys every step in our process so you can build a studio too.
Our friend Gavin Haverstick from Haverstick Designs is joining us to help with the acoustic design of our room and passed along his tips and tricks to share with you! Gavin is testing the room’s response to see if what we have so far will work for our room.
Check out the gear used to test the room below:
1. Omnidirectional Microphones
Earthworks M30 is a FIRST-CLASS reference microphone. Use it with your audio-band measurement system to get honest results, so you can tune accordingly. The difference between the omnidirectional mic’s and regular mic’s is that the omnidirectional mic’s can find really high frequencies.
DBX RTA-M is a more affordable alternative to the Earthworks M30. The RTA-M is a real-time analyzer microphone for the DriveRack PA. Flat frequency response, super-accurate omnidirectional mic.
2. Testing Sound (through a laptop)
Sound Devices USB Pre 2 has a really low noise floor and is great for really low noise measurements. It is built really well, so it is also great for people who will need to travel with it. Borrowing the same award-winning microphone preamplifiers found on their 744T digital portable interface, the Sound Devices USBPre 2 provides one of the highest quality portable interfaces available for both Mac and Windows computers. The USBPre 2 is equipped with a pair of fully discrete, transistor-based XLR inputs and impressively lucid 24-bit converters that are capable of up to 192kHz sample rates.
3. Testing Sound Application
RødeTest FuzzMeasure is an audio and acoustic measurement tool to produce, analyze, and publish beautiful graphs. It delivers a comprehensive suite of features for professionals in research, acoustics, live sound, room design, and pro audio. By combining sophisticated technology with an elegant user interface, FuzzMeasure offers an unparalleled experience.
