Designing a Performance Room

This project involves finding and treating acoustical problems in a small studio space (WICN Public Radio 90.5FM) to improve its acoustic environment. The approach was to consult professionals and literature in acoustics, set up a computer model of the acoustic problems, and run acoustical tests. The project concludes the presence of modal problems and an irregularly distributed reverberation time, which needed to be addressed. Recommendations and analysis suggested the implementation of RPG Inc.'s Modex solutions complemented by a constructed performance stage.
