First a bit of a bump to say that a bunch of the things in that MOXE video are really awesome looking. That roof lamp/absorber is particularly nice.
Not that I’ve gone looking very much, but that stuff seems pretty unique. Are there more designs out there like this? Or some clearer info on these types of solutions?
Second is a question about how to best figure out where to put sound treatment.
Basically my studio is a “mixed use” space, with some studio monitors/desk, along with drums and other live instruments. So it is part ‘live room’ and part ‘monitoring setup’, with it weighted towards the ‘live room’ side of things.
The room is a large (4.34m x 5.82m) room with a pointed ceiling (2.44m at the walls and 3.54m at the peak) that is inside what was once a farm structure.
There’s some more pics of it in the pictures thread, but it’s something like this:
A friend suggested using HOFA’s free consultation service, which was fantastic. Basically you send them some measurements and pictures, along with a budget, and then they send you a proposal. (attaching my response so you can see how detailed they are)

So I’ve done some of what they have suggested, mainly putting 6 bass traps along the corners (2 stacked in each corner except where the sofa is), but as far as the panels, I haven’t gone with what they said as they seem to have focussed on getting an ideal “mix position”, which is great and all, but does little for the overall sound of the room.
Now I’ve (re)read through this thread a couple of times (great posts from @bassik!), but not exactly sure what the best course of action is for treating the acoustic sound of a room, vs creating an ideal single-point listening position.
In terms of what I have, in addition to the HOFA basstraps in the corners I have ordered 20 x Vicoustic Wavewood panels, so quite a lot of panels for the room. I was initially going to space them around fairly evenly in stacks of 2, with some more precisely placed ones near the listening area, but not sure if that’s the best course of action. Also not against adding some DIY/diffusor things too.
Basically most of the guides and software I’ve seen (REW and @wselman’s spreadsheet) deal with tuning a sweet spot vs creating an overall flatter sound in the room.
