It's really helpful to have it - when I get current prices I'll write them up in this thread.
I'm setting up a music studio in 1 or 2 rooms. So early reflections, flutter echo, reverb & might use moveable panels to act as a gobo or portable vocal booth. Both rooms are small - ~ 3mx4m. Monitors are small too - 5" Tannoys which have limited bass which I think is helpful in a small room.
Most of what I read on the web is aiming for the best, which is great if you can afford it, but I think I can get decent results with recording and mixing with a fair few panels, a bit of diffusion & whatever blankets etc I can find.
Some questions I have:
- Do any of the suppliers in Cape Town supply low quantity or does it always have to be a group buy?
- Some, e.g. the studiotips guide, claim you need twice the density of rockwool/mineral wool to be equivalent to 703, others have it performing close, what's right?
- A lot of people use uthermo 8 instead of 3, is it worth it if cost is a primary concern?
