Can Audacity display the recorded SPL using a constant recording sample frequency, thus eliminating any information about the frequency of the sound being recorded?
I think trying to get some "objective" measurements is a great idea in these circumstances. If you try one arrangement, then a few days later you move things around, it's going to be difficult to remember exactly how good your previous arrangements were.Cdntiger wrote: ...

Hmm... not quite that simple - SPL is usually "weighted" for different frequencies and there's different ways of doing that. White noise has higher energy than Pink noise of the same amplitude.alatham wrote:White noise will have a higher SPL at the same amplitude
That's a very good article. I've never managed to get hold of rigid fiberglass, but carpet felt (the old fashioned felt, not the newer foam stuff) works fairly well, is cheap, easy to work with and easier to get hold of (and doesn't make you itch). In my studio, I have some panels in the corners made of this stuff: http://www.wickes.co.uk/invt/161197 with a layer of felt glued on, then covered with fabric.alatham wrote:If you still want a better sounding room, most of that acoustic paneling stuff can be built much cheaper if you buy the raw materials yourself:http://www.ethanwiner.com/acoustics.html I'm not sure where to buy rigid fiberglass, you might have to order it.
