“The majority of the lesson consisted of how to get a great sounding room and different design techniques to do so. My mentor explained the importance of acoustic isolation and different sonic absorbers and how it played a significant role in getting the best performance. He also demonstrated how sound waves interact when they hit walls, diffusers and other wall treatments, which I found extremely helpful. The biggest thing that stuck with me was when my mentor us into the live room and showed us how walls and boundaries react and can give a completely different sound depending on the angle of the walls, the placement and the projected direction of the instrument, and if a togo is being used. My mentor also emphasized the importance on having an optimized listening environment, which is extremely important when in the mixing and mastering phases. The lesson was very exciting and taught me that there are a lot of variables that go into capturing the best possible performance.”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
