How do you decide how many absorption panels are needed?

Hey,

I'm planning on doing a bit of acoustic treatment of my recording room. I have already got glasswool filled behind the plywood walls, ceiling and the vocal booth floor. I want to dampen the high end flutter that I'm getting in my vocal booth as well as tune my mix room. I'm inserting the floor map and pictures of my studio. I hope to get some help from the experts on this forum.

Cheers,
Rahul

Symmetry is pretty important from where you sit forward. I don't know about those "ramps" that you have on the wall, but it looks to me those should be facing the other way and needs to be used on the left and the right in the early reflection points. Honestly, I would use absorption in that area. Here are some videos and articles to give you a hand.

With bass traps, the more you add the better things will sound. However, you don't want to overdo high frequency absorption.

Thanks Glenn.. a friend of mine had suggested that I make the shark fin features to avoid standing waves.. he never told me the direction, so I built them what felt right at that time, almost 4 years ago, I suppose I should have used some common sense.
