The most important piece of equipment in your studio is not your computer. It isn’t your DAW or your monitors or your MIDI controller. The most important piece of equipment in your room has zero moving parts, probably looks a little bit ugly, and is something you will almost certainly never actually notice. We’re talking about your acoustic treatment.
The acoustics of a room where music is made, mixed or mastered is the single most important thing in the entire production chain. It doesn’t matter how good your ears are or how expensive your equipment is: if your space isn’t treated right, then what you’ll be hearing won’t be accurate, and you won’t get a good sound.
In this guide, we’ll go into exactly what acoustics are. We’ll talk about what sound is, how it behaves, and how you can tame it. We’ll also detail a short construction project that you can undertake to make your own acoustic panels. Trust us: it will improve your sound like you wouldn’t believe.
