Why You Need Acoustic Treatment If You Make Music
Today we look at acoustic treatment and why we think you need it if you produce, mix or master music.
It’s a topic we have overlooked for a while but we now feel we have learned enough to talk about it openly. I can go into details about the treatment in a future video but this video will focus on why we think it will help. Acoustic treatment will help balance and clear the tonal balance of your room and help you get a great mix that will translate well to the real world, the car,and Hi Fi systems.
The good thing is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get great results. careful positioning of the panels and diffusers will help you get the most out of the treatment.

Micahel Wynne is a recording artist and mixing engineer with a passion for teaching (and instant ramen).
In 2015 I discovered my enthusiasm for music and audio; I learned how to record and produce songs in my university student room with a just cheap laptop and FL Studio. After several months of working in audio sessions between school assignments, I decided to leave uni with a 2-year engineering diploma to pursue a career in music. I wanted to learn everything I could about the industry and the artistic process, so I started making original music as half of the duo “Miavono”.
In late 2016 I began my journey on YouTube, sharing my knowledge and experiences with audio in the form of tutorials on “In The Mix”. I quickly grew a community of over 120,000 producers, artists, and audio professionals, a group of people whose passions aligned with mine. Last year I built my own home studio from the ground up in my back garden, set in the rural highlands of Scotland, and have since been supported by and involved with some of the greatest people in the industry.
