I've been (not so patiently) waiting to see your cloud but it still isn't up.  Sad

I assume it will be a diffusion (not absorption) style cloud.

Got any links/advice on cloud design?

The reason I ask is this thread got me motivated to get back to work on my room's acoustics.  I recently installed a number of absorption panels and bass traps in my room and I'm now ready to build a cloud but I don't have good info on cloud design.  Help!

oh man

i wish you would have posted on friday, i would have taken pics of the building of it

which took about an hour from start to finish

my cloud is built, fabric wrapped and hung in place

i'll get a smaller pic of it up tomorrow.....my camera takes large "high rez" pics that some complain about the DL time

anyway......my cloud is straight absorbtion

B-rad didn't want any chance of reflections between the gyp ceiling and the hardwood floor i sit above.

it's merely a wood frame holding a piece of 1" thick 703, fabric wrapped, and hung using eye hooks so i can easily take it down if needed.

pics tomorrow, i promise.   but only of the cloud, i'm building suspense here!!!!!

as promised....

first pic is from the rear of the room looking forward toward the front wall.

Cloud 1

second pic is of the eye hook hanging method we used.
four hooks run up into ceiling joice, eye hooks placed in wood framing of absorber panel.

all hooks face the same direction so you can easily lift up the panel and hang it.

Cloud 2

third pic is from the front of the room looking back

Cloud 3

all right people

here it is......

a few pics of an empty room.  still haven't put up the machine room door hardware, but that hardly stops me from moving in to the room (which i have already started)

for a little perspective, i'll re-post the first pic i took.

after moving the console, tape machine, equipment racks, and various other things......sitting on the floor for hours zip tieing off wires and making sure it's all nice and neat

i'm having trouble getting out of bed.  my back hurts just thinking about all this.

all right

put up the speakers last night

great googly moogly, hands down the best room i've ever heard

B-rad is the man

i have a few tweaks to make to the speaker positions and the diffusor angles

but let's put it this way

i listened to about 15 songs that i THOUGHT i knew inside and out....basically, my reference mixes i've used for a long time

i had NO idea.....i'm hearing things in these mixes i've never heard before

it's basically like i've NEVER heard them prior to now

i mean really HEARD them

depth of field, stereo imaging, low end, broadband clarity.........it's ABSURD

as i told B-rad, i'm having trouble positioning the speakers cause i'm flat out in awe of what i've got now.

Glad to hear that you are pleased with the results. It has been fun watching you build the studio.  I hope that there are some photos of the finished studio soon.

hey dennis, good to see you here.

everything is REALLY close to being done.  almost time for you and mikey to jump in a car and head down here.

anyway.....i got pictures

current status of room:

Front Wall

a little blurry, but you'll get the point here....

Front Wall 2

now, if you notice to the right of the console is a 17" apple display that has been rack mounted with a shelf for a keyboard and trackball.

above all that are my patchbays.  people have been asking how i did all that.

first off, the rackmount kit for the apple display is from marathon computers.

secondly, my dad picked up a nie piece of polished aluminum for the keyboard shelf.

i marked it all up and used a drill press to drill it out, and mounted it to the display rackmount.

seemed a little flimsy so we picked up some good angled aluminum and cutting wheel for the table saw.

i cut it to size, and then cut a 45 degree angle of the front supports so i don't cut my legs up moving under it......

used a mill file to get all edges smooth

first pic is of the rear view

Nice work!

2 questions:

1)  What kind of monitors are those?

2)  Why is one of your wall mounted absorption panels L-shaped?

Wright WFM-II

small company out of atlanta that went under a while back

when i worked at mercenary Fletcher used these things, after listening to music on them for 7 months i just couldn't live without them

he switched to adams, i bought out every thing he had....spare parts and all.

2)  Why is one of your wall mounted absorption panels L-shaped?


B-rad and i agreed that due to room size, the diffusors would be best installed in a manner that would allow them to be moved back against the wall for any unforeseen reason.

so obviously, we hinged them.

the L-shaped panel is right next the window and i wanted to cover the maximum area i could with it.

so i followed the window down then brought the panel out underneath the window.  so when it' against the wall it looks right.  it just looks funny in it's angled position.

the panels need to be moved down about 4"

i might rebuild that one.
