I find myself in a sticky situation and hope you guys can offer some assistance.
My girlfriend and I moved into a new apartment and I no longer have my own room to have as a studio. We both need a space to work so we're sharing a second bedroom.
This was my before setup:
This is my current setup:
And a template of the current room:
Obviously, my new mix position is way less than ideal. I'm off-centre, there's a big glass window behind the desk, and the ceilings are now 9ft high. I also cannot use my monitor stands so the monitors have to go on the new desk I bought.
There is little I can do with the arrangement of the desks and bed, and there is no position where I can be centred between the walls (we cannot get rid of the bed either).
I know it's not as good as my last setup, but I'm wondering what I can do to improve it. Currently there is no acoustic foam on the walls, and I have 4 bass traps I will put in the top corners eventually. There's also a nasty echo / buzz when you clap your hands and the early reflections are not hitting my ears equally from the mix position.
What do you guys recommend I do with the acoustic foam? Since the mix position is not centre, where should the foam placement be? I know the position is still terrible but at least having the acoustic foam on the walls somewhere will help with the nasty echo and buzz. I gotta make due for now.
Thanks in advance!
