Hey man, no worries. Any help/input is appreciated, and at any point. I’m not in a big rush to put up the panels as it’s just my home studio that I’m casually using.
It will be a couple of weeks before I can do any of this anyways on my side.
So by “constant distance from your sweet spot” do you mean, like taking recordings that are say 1m away from the sweet spot (but would be closer and further to the speakers), or do you mean constant distance from the speakers (i.e. 1.5m from the speakers fanning out).
And is it best, for this purpose, to create stereo or mono IRs (and then 2 channel or 4 channel stereo (speakerL to micL, speakerL to micR, speakerR to micL, speakerR to micR))?
And in terms of mic, I don’t have a proper reference mic, but I have some ok mics. My “good” options are DPA 4060s (omni) or AKG C214 (cardioid). I have a large diaphragm condenser that’s been modded (new capsule/transformer/etc…) and sounds great, but is an unknown in terms of exact frequency response.
I presume the C214 would be better here for it’s pickup pattern, but I suspect the DPA is flatter sounding.
I was going to use the HISS tools IR stuff. I’ve not used REW before (downloading it now). For some reason I thought it was Windows only…
edit: hmm, REW looks pretty useful. Would you suggest I just do everything in there? (since I presume it’s more tailored to this actual process)
