The vital synergy between soundproofing and acoustic treatment in music studios cannot be overstated. Soundproofing acts as a protective fortress, shielding musicians from external disturbances, ensuring an undisturbed space for both professionals aiming for flawless recordings and beginners exploring
their artistic realms.

Simultaneously, acoustic treatment refines the internal sonic landscape, enhancing clarity and tempering reverberations. Together, they create an immersive sanctuary where every note, lyric, and beat can be expressed and appreciated in their purest form. This harmonious integration of soundproofing and acoustic treatment transforms studios into spaces where creativity flourishes, elevating the music to unparalleled excellence.

Soundproofing – A Fortress Against Unwanted Noise

In the realm of music creation, silence is golden. Soundproofing is the knight in shining armor that guards against the invasion of unwanted noise. Whether you're battling street sounds, chirping birds, or the occasional household clamor, soundproofing materials create a shield, allowing you to focus solely on the symphony you're crafting.

Professional Studios

For the professional musician, investing in top-tier soundproofing solutions is an imperative. Cutting-edge materials such as mass-loaded vinyl, acoustic foam panels, and resilient channels can transform a studio into an impenetrable fortress, ensuring that every recording is free from external disturbances.

Everly Pump

Available in three widths, these pumps feature walkable heels and provide non-slip outsoles. With a pair of pumps like these Naturalizer Everly heels, you may be able to get through the day without any discomfort. They sit below the recommended 3-inch heel height and feature the brand’s signature open-cell foam padding to make it feel like you’re wearing the shoes and not the other way around. Choose from one of three widths (narrow, medium, wide) and strut with a pair of shoes that works for day or night, casual or special occasions.

Round-Toe Chunky Heels

These rounded-toe shoes provide an antibacterial, deodorizing cushion to keep your feet fresh. Anyone who has bunions should pay special attention to the toe box. Rounded or square boxes are better because pointed ones will add more pressure in that area. These heels from Vivaia have rounded toes to prevent worsening bunions, and their upper areas are knitted with flexible stretch. They’re also quite low at a little less than two inches to ease the pressure from your feet. And they have a non-slip rubber sole to help you stay put. If you have wide feet, we recommend selecting one size up for extra comfort.

Acoustic Treatment – Crafting a Sonic Oasis

4 Tips to Find Comfortable Heels

Know Your Right Shoe Size

It may sound silly, but a 2017 survey by the Podiatric Society found that almost half of the women in the UK alone are wearing the wrong shoe size. Your foot sizes change over the years, especially after having kids. When buying shoes, measure both width and length. A lot of people think it's wide or vice versa and it's not, so make sure to check that out before shopping.

The Thicker The Heel, The Better

Avoid thin heels: the stilettos. These heels often cause your feet to wobble around. If you wear stilettos every day, you may want to consider a chunkier heel style and change it up a bit. Chunky heels don't wobble as easily as high heels, which helps prevent your ankle from snapping.

Try a Shoe with More Top Coverage

The more coverage you have on the top of your feet, the better. Sometimes, you can wear high heels all day and they don’t bother your feet as much. In the summer, you can try something with an ankle strap or a large wide strap over the top. If you are worried about blisters and friction, you might want to try something that covers more of the top of your foot.

Opt for Platform Heels

Platform heels are more comfortable than single-sole heels because the actual heel is shorter than the heel height. The platform also reduces the impact of your feet touching the ground, reducing discomfort. However, thicker platform heels can cause your foot to wobble and your ankle to snap, especially if the platform is very thick and the heel is stiletto. The shoe should be a good ratio between a thick platform and a fitting heel.

Fun Facts About High Heels

Men's high heels are made to be comfortable and look good, so they will replace the standard sneaker as an everyday shoe. Men are also likely to buy more expensive shoes in order to get a better fit and style. The market for men's shoes will grow by 10% every year through 2024, according to Business Insider. In 2023, there will be almost 4 billion pairs of men's shoes sold each year—a nearly 50% increase from 2022 levels!

London is the most fashion-forward city in the world. It's also a good place to shop for high heels for men, as many stores specialize in selling them. The men's fashion scene is growing rapidly, and there are many stores that sell high heels for men. You'll find everything from classic black pumps to sexy patent leather boots or lace-up loafers with chains attached — especially,there are even some sparkly pairs available too!

Tokyo is a city of contrasts, where you can find high heels and sneakers at the same time. It’s also home to some of the best nightlife in all of Asia, making it an ideal place for any man who wants to dress up on a regular basis. If you're looking for something more low-key, there are plenty of other options: Tokyo has some great shopping districts as well as traditional markets where you can get your hands on just about any shoes!

Tips and Tricks: Acoustic Panel Placement in Your Music Studio

Tips and Tricks: Acoustic Panel Placement in Your Music Studio

In this guide, we'll delve into the art of optimal acoustic panel placement to help you create a harmonious auditory environment that truly resonates.

📖 4 min read

Music is the strongest form of magic.
Marilyn Manson

When it comes to transforming the acoustics of your space, acoustic panels are a powerful tool. These panels work wonders in taming echoes, reducing noise buildup, and enhancing sound clarity. However, to unlock their full potential, proper placement is key. In this guide, we'll delve into the art of optimal acoustic panel placement to help you create a harmonious auditory environment that truly resonates.


1. Identify Reflection Points

Begin by identifying reflection points – surfaces where sound waves bounce off and create echoes. These reflection points, including areas like walls, ceilings, and corners, are where sound waves bounce off surfaces, creating echoes.
Focusing on three key reflection points can greatly enhance acoustics: the mirror point, positioned between the loudspeaker and listening seat; the side walls hosting the speakers; and the ceiling area between the speakers and listening spot.

Placing acoustic panels at these points will intercept and absorb these reflections, preventing sound from becoming muddy and indistinct.

See the infographics at the end of the article.

 

2. The First Reflection Point for Speakers

For optimal sound quality, address the first reflection point for your speakers.
This point is where a direct line runs between your speakers and ears. To pinpoint this crucial area, sit at your listening position and envision where the sound emitted from your speakers strikes the side walls before returning to you.

Placing acoustic panels at this intersection, ideally at ear level, minimizes the impact of reflected sound waves, and ensures you hear music or dialogue clearly without interference.


3. The Ceiling

Don't forget about the ceiling! Vertical reflections are a crucial consideration in any recording space, and managing sound that bounces back and forth overhead can significantly impact the clarity and precision of your audio productions.

By strategically suspending Echo Moon Acoustic Hanging Textile Baffles from the ceiling, you can significantly reduce the unwanted bounce of sound waves, leading to improved audio accuracy during recording and mixing sessions.

In addition to the Echo Moon, the Echo Cloud Acoustic Hanging Textile Baffles provide yet another innovative solution for managing sound reflections from the ceiling. Similarly, the Echo Cloud baffles scatter and diffuse sound waves, preventing them from connecting and causing an echo in your studio. Plus, you can easily transform your ceiling into a dynamic and engaging aspect of your studio's design.

4. Corners Matter

Corners are notorious for trapping sound and creating boomy bass. Placing bass traps in room corners helps prevent low-frequency buildup, providing a cleaner and more defined audio profile. High-frequency panels can also be added to corners to maintain balanced sound dispersion.

5. Using and Diffusing

When aiming to achieve optimal acoustics in your music studio, the placement of diffusers is a key consideration.

As a general guideline, consider placing diffusers on surfaces where sound reflections are most prominent, such as walls behind speakers or recording areas. This strategic placement can help scatter sound waves, reducing problematic reflections and enhancing the overall sonic clarity of your space.

Save the infographics at the end of the article for a later acoustic guidance.


6. Behind You

Addressing the area behind you is equally important. Placing panels behind your listening position can help absorb sound that escapes. This enhances overall sound clarity while ensuring a comfortable listening experience for everyone.

7. Wall-to-Wall Placement

Consider placing panels across the entire length of a wall for uniform sound absorption. This is especially effective in larger spaces where sound waves can easily bounce around. Wall-to-wall placement ensures a consistent auditory experience, minimising variations in sound quality.

8. Mixing and Matching

Different panels serve different purposes. Foam sound absorbers are excellent for controlling overall sound reflections, while diffusers scatter sound waves for a more natural ambience.

Mixing and matching panel types can strike a balance between absorbing excess sound and maintaining a lively auditory atmosphere. Consider the powerful combination of wood acoustic panels, textile acoustic panels, and bass traps.

9. Test and Adjust

Acoustic panel placement is not an exact science. It's important to test different arrangements and listen to the changes in sound.

Start with a few panels and gradually add more while assessing the sonic improvements. Your ears are your best guide in finding the perfect arrangement.

BONUS: Exclusive Pro Tip From Our Acousticians

When it comes to crafting the perfect acoustic environment in your music studio, one concept that has gained popularity among both listeners and directors is LEDE - Live End Dead End. This innovative approach divides your studio space into two distinct halves, each serving a unique purpose in optimising sound quality.

In the first half, known as the "Dead End," you'll find carefully placed acoustic panels and bass traps, creating a tightly absorbed area near the speakers. This absorption zone is strategically designed to capture and eliminate any unwanted reflections from your speakers. By doing so, it ensures that the sound remains pure and unaltered, free from distortion.

 

Live and dead zones acoustic panels placement

 

On the other side, we have the "Live End." This half of the room, starting from the midpoint between your ears and extending towards the rear, incorporates diffusers. These diffusers are responsible for scattering sound waves in a way that mimics the natural acoustics of everyday living spaces like a cosy living room or a bedroom. This diffusion effect imparts a soft and pleasant volume to the sound, ensuring it doesn't come across as dry or overly controlled.

 

A diagram from acousticians for acoustic panel placement in a music studio

 

The genius of the LEDE concept lies in its ability to create a surround sound experience while completely eliminating any disruptive reflections. It's the perfect harmony between absorption and diffusion, delivering optimal acoustic conditions for your music studio.

To take your LEDE setup to the next level, consider experimenting with the placement and density of your acoustic panels and diffusers. Fine-tuning these elements can help you achieve the precise acoustic characteristics you desire, allowing you to tailor your studio's sound environment to your unique preferences. Remember, the beauty of LEDE lies in its flexibility, so don't hesitate to adjust and refine until you find the sweet spot that makes your music truly shine.

 

Target all music studio zones with acoustic panels

 

Echoes of Knowledge

Remember that optimal acoustic panel placement is a blend of science and creativity. You can transform your space into an auditory haven by strategically positioning panels at reflection points, corners, ceilings, and behind your listening area. However, there's no one-size-fits-all approach – it's about finding the arrangement that harmonises with your space and personal preferences.

So, let the experimentation begin and enjoy a soundscape that truly sings.
