Acoustic Considerations in the Design of Recording Studios

Document Thumbnail

The paper discusses recent advances in the design of recording enclosures. For the attainment of a -flat- reverberation characteristic, a number of special sound absorbers are examined. The shape of the studio, it is pointed out, should be dictated by its purpose, and some examples of unusual configurations are discussed together with general rules for ceiling height and room volume. Finally, types of sound insulation are presented which allow simultaneous operation of adjoining studies in each of which the sound levels, either air-borne or solid-borne, are of a very high order.
