Budget Personal Project Difficult
Q: I am still working on the construction of a project studio room. I will soon be adding a "room within the room" and a "floating floor"... but would like to discuss some ideas with a professional. I am severely limited in terms of WEIGHT being that this room is on the second floor of a wood framed building, otherwise it would be easy. I realize that there is probably no perfect plan given the situation, but I'd like to get as close to "perfect" as possible. And once the construction itself is done, I'd like to hire someone to take measurements of the room's frequency response etc and perhaps help tune it up with appropriate diffusors and absorbers etc. It will be a tracking room as well as a control room. I started studying the whole acoustics thing a while back and finally came to the conclusion that it is an extremely complex subject, way too complex for anyone who hasn't really studied it heavily. Anyone who is not an ace at this subject can realistically only take stabs in the dark... and I'd rather not do that. Looking for a "medium budget" acoustics / studio construction man for consultation. I say "medium budget" because this is just a small personal project studio and not a multi-million dollar commercial facility. It's just one 500 square foot room with a 12 foot ceiling.... but the trick is that it needs to be as "sound-proofed" as humanly possible, needs to sound "good" on the inside as a tracking and mixing room, and cannot exceed a given weight limitation due to the nature of the structure. A seemingly simple project but with some tricky hurtles to cross. In NY, CT, NJ area
A: Give me a call. I try to be as cost-effective as is humanly possible on consulting while trying to attain the best sound and acoustic characteristics. I also alway suggest some care remain in seeing that you wind up with a space that supports the actual needs: ie will someone actuall feel like making music in the resulting space! I will say that you are attempting the hardest of all situations: upper floor in a wood frame building. I would say, if you do not have a definitive knowledge of it already, that having a structural engineer tell you the actual load-bearing capacity would be step one. .
