Hi all, Just moved into a new place, and set up all my recording gear. Simple DAW set-up, nothing overly fancy. So the apartment is layed out in such a way that the most logical and logistical area for my DAW is to be on a little mezzanine/loft kind of area. It's a great workspace, but acoustically, it's terrible. Half of the back is a big square (bass trap?) the other half is open and leads into the living room and the rest of the house. Was listening to some Fourplay and Dream Theater to kind of listen to what the new room sounds like and I can't say I like it very much. There's a weird bass thing happening above the kick, but under the beater frequency-wise. Same spot as 1 of the notes on the bass guitar, I'm guessing somewhere around the low G or A. When this frequency is played, I can feel my entire body and head resonate. The whole area just fills up with it and takes over the entire song. Quite cool, but not good. It's a rental apartment, so I'm probably not going to drop lots of cash into building walls and renovating. I'm not sure how effective acoustic treatment will be, seeing that half the area is opens out to the rest of the house. What do you suggest I can do? Right now I'm considering dropping the cash on the most expensive pair of headphones I can find. Alternatively, I was thinking of possibly having some sort of a graphic EQ between the main outs and my monitors, but that somehow feels like an illogical solution. For the record, I mainly do sound design and and trying to get jingles and producing/arranging gigs. I likely won't be mixing any full-length albums anytime soon, but I'd still like to have a decent "room" that I can do work in. Any advice is definitely appreciated. Thanks guys!
