    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   A while back I had the pleasure of attending a seminar given by Gavin Haverstick of Haverstick Designs. The topic of the seminar was how to measure the acoustic issues of your room. He talked about various measurement techniques and devices. All of this was very interesting, but the most fascinating part for me was during the question-and-answer section at the end. Someone in the audience asked Gavin to give his opinion on… View this story

    Located just blocks from the White House, the World Bank opened for business at 1818 H street on June 25, 1948.  Today, the Bank’s address remains the same, but as the organization’s focus has evolved, so has the footprint of its headquarters.  The Bank’s H Street headquarters is now a multi-building complex covering an entire city block. The buildings are enclosed by a massive glass atrium more than 150 feet tall and 150 feet wide. The atrium has become a… View this story

    Calgary-based energy company Enbridge recently implemented a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system with the goal of clarifying corporate communication and facilitating the free flow of ideas. Eliminating the need for lavalier or handheld microphones, the systems support a variety of functions in two adjacent meeting rooms located in the company’s new Learning Center and are are part of a complete AV design by Bill Schuermann, senior consultant at the Houston office of SLR Consulting. “The rooms are used for everything… View this story

    In a city with no shortage of museums (New York City), the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is truly one of a kind. Founded in 1982 as a final home for the historic aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, the museum’s treasures now include the world’s fastest commercial jetliner, the British Airways Concorde; the first space shuttle, Enterprise; and the USS Growler, the only American diesel-powered strategic missile submarine open to the public. More than a million visitors every year tour… View this story

    studio acoustics
    Peter Janis 04/30/14 03:12 PM,
    This article is provided by Primacoustic   Just like large big commercial studios, smaller and home studios suffer from acoustical interference that can make it more difficult to mix, especially when surrounded with the sound effects and ambiance that now typifies today’s stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes. In professional studios, the walls are strategically treated with fabric-covered absorptive panels on the sides, front, rear and sometimes on the ceilings. The key to improving intelligibility (or our ability to discern… View this story

    If one could listen to only the direct sound of a loudspeaker, the world would be a very different place! Unfortunately, free field listening, where you have no reflections, room modes or ambient noise, is hard to achieve in everyday life, so we listen to loudspeakers in real rooms. The interaction of a loudspeaker system and a room can be very complex to understand, model or measure! One way to measure this interaction is to measure the impulse response of… View this story

    Neil Thompson Shade 03/31/14 01:28 PM,
    Let’s have a look at sound particles, acoustic pressure, propagation medium density, particle velocity, acoustic energy, volume velocity, and acoustic impedance. Abstract concepts? Nope—far from it. All are related to the physics of sound propagation in an elastic medium that result in changes to the displacement, pressure, density, temperature, and velocity within the medium. In other words, this is at the basis of everything we hear, the scientific essence of sound. Sound Particles. Sound requires a medium for the transmission… View this story
