Looking for suggestions for my room...


i'm building a studio in a detached garage, 20'x24'.

i have a rough sketch of how the walls have been built, iso booth/ entryway is on the SW corner, windows on the west wall.

all walls and ceiling are attached by resilient channel, corners in the larger room have been 45ed, though none of the angles are true 45's or 90's. ceiling is (only) 8' high.

the triangle on the south wall represents approximately where i expect to set up the mix position, at least until i build an addition off of the west wall to serve as a control room (if $$$ ever permit).

basically, i am looking for any suggestions or feedback regarding acoustic treatment inside and placement of mix position and instruments (drums, amps, organs).

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Put the speakers at the top of the drawing facing down, so the booth is behind you. This is much better than the triangle location you show. Then get bass traps for as many corners as possible, and treat the side-wall and ceiling reflection points. In this case "corners" also include where the walls meet the ceiling and even where they meet the floor if possible.
