For those of you that dont get my facebook feed ( yes yes lots of you , friend me if waste of time book is your thing ! )
I have been building a studio for the wollongong university pretty much because i can
Its not a huge budget ( tiny really ) , but i met with the staff and they where not proud of what they had
Some students said their highschool studio was better !

Anyway i got involved little while back and i have built them a studio they can be proud of .
And reckon somethings are worth making look nice for the 1 guy in ten that understands .

Any heres a couple shots , i designed and made everything in my studio / man shed

Works as a tunable diffuser/ absorber
Allows me to tune the middle of the room after the fact
When the gear goes in and most acousticians have long gone home

Lookin good.

Is there any magic to the diffusers other than boxes with holes in the front, filled with absorbent material?

(not that there needs to be, sounds magic)

Cool stuff Rick! I studied music composition at Wollongong University. In the early 2000's a digidesign 001 & a Protools|24 system didn't seem all that out of place, but I reckon they probably never upgraded from them! It is a little bit bittersweet seeing the facilities being upgraded, largely because the degree I did along with all the teaching staff related to it were scrapped about five years ago.

The big holes have other holes behind them
Rpg bAd panels masks in mdf so there is some element of scientific magic thats smarter then me
but really its just A neato way of tuning the amount of fluff in a room without it sounding
Dead .. Diffusion doesnt always have to look like it !

The rpg handbook is all about diffuser absorbers being the best way forward For those of us unable to drill multilayered nanoholes .. which is the cutting edge of acoustics today
Flat nano hole panels !

But chalk these as Magic wineracks !
