Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

Yeah, and I've noticed a long-term tendency for people to try to be "nicer" by saying "sorry, not my thing" instead of being, like, "this sucks." Like, "sorry, not my thing" is such a non-review as to be useless. I tend not to review much anymore just because I have a hard time coming up with words ...

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

Okay I ended up ordering a dbx 231s for overall room treatment (as an insert between my audio interface and my monitor speakers), and I also bought Audio Hijack which lets you insert additional audio effects on the system audio output, which I can use to fine-tune specific frequencies that fall betw...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

Here's some stuff that stands out to me: Meeting everyone in person for the first time in 2003. It was very much a summer camp vibe and it was sad when it ended, and I'm glad that unlike most summer camps we've actually kept in touch :) Doing that weird totally-not-a-show in Van Nuys at a rehearsal ...

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

Okay so after getting very annoyed with the available equalizers no the market I decided to try out the Sonarworks demo, and while the calibration process was annoying as heck, I gotta say, the resulting audio treatment is pretty darn amazing. At least spot-checking running Logic's test tone generat...

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

That might work but that sounds like a pretty serious undertaking, for something that wouldn't reduce the resonant mode in the room. I wonder if this 135Hz resonance just wasn't bugging me before for some reason, because I see no physical reason why that would be new. This room's always been 8.5'ish...

Re: Fun (easy) Games for my Google Phone?

yeah I mean lately I've been doing most of my mobile gaming via Apple Arcade... $5/month for a whole buttload of games with no microtransactions or ads or whatever, and the money goes to the developers whose games you're playing. But that's not available on Android, obviously.

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

In fact, yeah, 135Hz has a physical wavelength of about 8.5 feet, which just so happens to be pretty darn close to the width of my room.

Wellp.

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

Hmm, that's a good point. So pretty much the only way to reliably cut down on bass reverberation is to prevent the bass from being generated in the first place, which means I should probably get an equalizer.

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

Hmm, those cones seem to be used to increase coupling, not decrease it, which is the opposite of what I want, isn't it? That first article mentions using tennis balls cut in half as a cheap decoupler, so maybe I'll give that a try, or try again with the hacky sacks I bought for this purpose before m...

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

Ooh, those are pretty. Pretty expensive . (But also pretty.) I think I'll try the Auralex MoPad first, since it gets good reviews and the angle might also help to cut down on resonance with the wall or something (although that wall is also covered with acoustic foam panels so I'm not sure how much m...

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

okay so yeah the wall's resonant frequency is 135Hz. But just decoupling the speakers from it won't make much of a difference; if I play 135Hz through just one speaker and hold it in my hands the rattling/shaking/etc. still happens. So I think I need a bass trap, or maybe I really do need to figure ...

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

I own, but it's a condo and the construction is weird and I'd rather not go into a major project like that right now. Unfortunately my monitors don't have any built-in EQ. They're just some midrange Fostexes I got on clearance. Cinder blocks would be too tall, but that's an interesting idea. I did j...

Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

Lately my recording studio's setup tends to add a lot of bass emphasis to my monitor speakers and so I end up doing my mixing on headphones. I really need to get around to figuring out what's wrong with my audio treatment. I think I need to refresh the foam I've been using to decouple my speakers fr...

Something like that. Back then forum software didn’t do anything to prevent a large image from disrupting a page layout, but HTML has evolved since then.

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

Oh yeah, Nevada!

A thread was getting rather heated. So someone (Jefff, I think?) posted a very large picture of scenic Nevada to calm everyone down, which had the fun side effect of messing up the horizontal wrapping of the page.

it became a whole thing.
