I have received quite an education about improving the acoustics of a room from Ryan Gibbons, an Applications Specialist with Auralex® Acoustics, Inc. In the interview posted below Ryan describes the typical problems that may exist in your studio and offers some suggestions on solving them. If after listening to this interview you would like more information they have a very comprehensive online resource available at http://www.acoustics101.com/ If you would like a free acoustical analyses of your studio, that includes their detailed recommendations for making improvements, you can contact Ryan directly:
Auralex doesn’t sell their products direct. Instead they use distributors and Ryan recommended that we work through SweetWater.com
NOTE: this is a different distributer than the what is shown at www.indoorcycleinstructor.com
Listen to the complete interview here or if you are a subscriber to the Indoor Cycle Instructor Podcast you will see it as Podcast #147.
Enjoy and be sure to let us know it helps you improve your studio.
