It's a long story that I won't bother you with but I've basically got to do some action-heavy sound design (hand-to-hand combat, etc) in a room that:
- is almost completely bare (no furniture, just basic appliances)
- has tiled floors
- bare walls
- is really reverberant right now
- is rectangular
- is roughly 27 feet in length and 12 feet in width
There's virtually no padding at all in here.
I have a pair of nearfield monitors (KRK Rockit 5's) and speaker stands but no acoustic foam.
I realize this is basically about the worst setup possible for clear mixing but it's what I've got.
There are a few smaller rooms, a hallway and a bathroom as well - also all empty. Maybe I could set up in there? I mean, the hallway is probably 5.5 - 6 feet in width and i could stack a few queen size mattresses on either side around me and a twin mattress in the back to create a little enclosure.
Also, I was thinking of stacking a few mattresses around me, up against the wall. Maybe hanging some blankets as well. If I HAD to, I could probably create some kind of enclosed space around me just by hanging blankets over various lamps and such.
