Psychoacoustic Considerations in the Design of Studio Control Rooms

Document Thumbnail

A great deal of discussion has been held concerning opotimal control room shapes and finishes, and their effect upon monitoring accuracy, localization, and illusory ambience. Design considerations based upon experimental data are described which are concerned with the perception of temporal and directional characteristics of reflected sounds. Application of these data to minitoring situations argues against the discrete, high-amplitude, laterally opposed reflections currently in vogue.
