This was another good lesson with Uncle Joey. Honestly, I feel like this chapter should have been a lot earlier in the curriculum, but nonetheless, there was some great information which will be very helpful when creating a home set-up. I had no clue what a bass trap was and had never heard of it before, but Joey was easily able to help out. He told me about when he started out at Crystal Clear and how he was getting great sounding bass when mixing in the studio, but when he took the mix to his car, there was little to no bass. He called a company and explained his problem, and they were able to fix his problem by telling him he needed three bass traps in the corner behind his work station. The way he had it set up, he created a massive bass chamber which is why he was hearing great bass in the studio. So, he explained how adding three bass traps help to absorb some bass which fixed his problem. Took the mix to his car and the bass was now mixed perfectly. We walked around to the different rooms found in the studio, to show me how every room has a different acoustic sound. Also, we talked about the mixing position and everything should be equidistant; monitors from the head, and the set up from the walls. Alot of the information was new, confusing, very technical, and didn't seem useful unless you planned on becoming an acoustician. But, there was also plenty of good information that will become useful in the near future.
