Acoustical Design Criteria for Surround Sound Control Rooms
This paper presents an examination of issues involved in the architectural and acoustical design of audio control rooms equipped with a multichannel monitoring system used for music, post-production, sound design and multimedia soundtrack creation and mixing. Consideration has been given to international recommendations regarding multichannel sound, including placement of acoustical materials and defining design goals for surround sound environments. Particular attention has been given to issues concerning the reworking of a room from a stereo environment to a multichannel monitoring environment.
