One of the most persistent problems faced by small studio operators is low-frequency irregularities in the room itself. Since every decision we make in recording and mixing is based on what we hear from the studio monitors, when the room colors that response, the end result can often be seriously flawed mixes, and low-frequency coloration is by far the most problematic type of room coloration. Plenty has been written about this issue, but with new engineers and mixers constantly coming up, it’s always worth taking another look at this problematic acoustic phenomenon.
