4 The Room Where Music is Recorded Music is recorded in an acoustic space, which could be a professional recording studio, a home studio, a concert hall, or even outside. The characteristics of the room not only affect how the recording is going to sound, but also how the musicians perform. In this episode, we look at the acoustical characteristics of the recording space: the room proportions, sound absorption, diffusion, and a brief look at sound isolation (“soundproofing”). Your comments and suggestions are always welcomed. email@example.com I have set up a web site to make finding episodes easier, plus links to other resources you might find useful. www.dougfearn.com
