Acoustic diffusion is another great way to help acoustically treat your tracking room, or control room. Without the use of diffusers, your room can have a ringing effect, that can result in a brittle sounding recording, or cause phasing in your control room that affects the translation of your mixes.
Most commonly constructed from wood, acoustic diffusers are acoustically designed to scatter or disperse sound waves, which will greatly reduce standing waves and echoes that can happen in your control room or tracking room, and greatly increase sound clarity. They can also be wrapped in other materials such as fiberglass or fabric, each design giving different results to fit any studio space.
Where acoustic absorbers trap or eliminate sound, sound diffusers are acoustically designed to maintain the live ambiance of the room, while also reducing standing waves and slap echo. With the combination of acoustic absorbers and diffusers, you can greatly increase the sound and vibe of your room.
