This is a kind of a ‘Mission Impossible’ thang.
Your mission Mr. Phelps: (if you decide to accept it)
‘Mix one song’
House bedroom/Office room with NO furniture at all.
Twelve feet long
Nine feet wide
Ten feet high
Lo pile carpet
Dry wall surfaces (walls and ceiling)
Your tools consists of:
One Mixing desk
One chair (if needed)
The mixing desk and each monitor is placed on its
own ‘stand’ which is on wheels and can be
moved, lowered, raised, to any height and placed
anywhere in the room.
All necessary cables are also provided.
Along with input to the desk from the DAW and
input to the speakers.
No additional materials are allowed into the room.
Now the big question:
Where/How do you set-up in this horrible room?
1-At one end facing the long way (bowling alley style)?
2-Dead centre facing the long wall?
3-Dead centre facing the short wall?
4-Facing one of the corners?
5-Or in a corner facing out?
6-Do you sit in the chair or stand?
7-At what volume do you mix?
8-etc etc etc
Keep in mind this room is very very bare so
reflected sound/bass etc traps will be the enemy.
How can one best minimize this enemy and get
the best mix possible under the circumstances?
