The RFZ/RPG Approach to Control Room Monitoring

Document Thumbnail

A design for implementing a LEDE control room is proposed. The dead end is achieved by creating an RFZ by flush mounting the monitors as close to a trihedral corner as is physically possible and splaying the absorbent side walls and ceiling to minimize interfering reflections at the mix position. The live end is achieved by positioning RPG diffusors in the rear wall in such a manner as to reintroduce the energy passing the mix position, after an initial time delay, temporarily and spatially diffused. The approach leads to accurate monitoring, with a stereo image which is maintained across the entire width of the console and in the rear of the room.
