    I had a control room once that was about 9' x 10'. It even made yours look big by comparison. I didn't have room for ANY chairs. Honest. I had two stools. It was a tape library/control room/dub room/studio. Even had an upright piano in it. And three tape machines (1/2" 8-track, two Revox A77s). It was tight.

    I had the studio window (once I expanded and had a studio space) to the side.

    I did think about the window causing nasty reflections, but my thoughts are (just thoughts) a) first reflections from the window would land behind the mix position, and b) new treatment behind the listening position would absorb most of them. Also, I thought about having panels that could be placed over the window, if needed, during mixing.

    Well, for now, I'm going to leave the room's layout as it is (the console/desk will stay in front of the window). I'm currently in the middle of lots of acoustic work going on here, though. New 2" and 4" broadband absorbers (703-based panel design) and bass traps will be installed in the control room in the next couple of weeks. Also, room measurements will be made after the absorbers are installed, and any major problem-frequencies will be addressed using specially designed panel resonators. I'll have some pictures soon.

    As for the current layout, I did talk with one of my regular clients and they made the suggestion of replacing the couch with nice bar stools. Their point of view was the fact that if you are sitting on the couch, not only are you right at the engineer, you can't see over the computer monitors through the glass to the talent. I hadn't thought about that! So, the bar stools instead of the couch would fix both of those issues. Only problem is, that couch is probably a great bass trap. I'll measure and see!

    QNote,

    Yes, the amount of trapping that your couch would offer, depends on the couch.

    Cheers,
