Auralex Acoustic Absorption Foam
Standing waves, room modes, acoustic reflections — These are all just fancy ways of talking about why your sound sucks if you don’t have the right acoustic treatment. The bottom line is that you’re going to need to do something about those blank walls that bounce sound around your studio. If you’ve been looking into it, you’ve probably noticed that most companies charge an arm, a leg, and maybe a kidney or two for acoustic treatment. With just a pack or two of studio foam on your walls, you’ll hear a night-and-day difference in your sound.
Heavy Duty Cotton Moving Blanket
Real sound blankets can be expensive. You can actually get by on the cheap with regular moving blankets, depending on your environment. These are made of recycled cotton and are a great way to stop reflection and deaden your recording space.
