Welcome! It might be cool to pitch your tones down a little bit (not too far though) and heighten the subtle air/wind textures inside the room rather than just roomtone - Since for being physically smaller, the 'moving air' in the room is larger in proportion to regular size.

You need to ABSORB sound partly to reduce, and partly to keep it from bouncing around (which is why it sounds like a bathroom). So THICKER things like heavy curtains or moving blankets (or quilts) or even old mattresses propped up against the wall have been effective. If you MUST use egg cartons (which you already know are not very effective), then at least ...

First things first, use your crossover. You should connect your main outputs to it and feed your main loudspeakers and your subwoofers power amps from it. Connecting and learning how to configure your crossover should be easy enough and straightforward, after you do some reading of the manual. This will give you the advantage of using less faders to control ...

I would definitely make the impact movements ultra realistic. Everything needs to sound huge! Lots of layers and good use of reverb.. Definitely use pitch effectively too like mentioned above. Good luck

A diffuser is used to scatter sound waves unevenly so the surface needs to be also very uneven. So you need a mildly reflective material such as wood or cork cut out so that it has edges and crevices of different sizes, angles and shapes. This will cause the round or flat (depends if we're talking near of far field and consequently the size and shape of the ...

I covered my dorm room with egg cartons when I was in school. We used contact cement or a tough rubber cement (I think it was called "Goo") to stick them to the walls and ceiling. I agree with the idea of doubling the layers. you should also stagger the crates to cover the joints in the lower layer. Besides all the other disadvantages mentioned above, I will ...

Egg cartons won't do much of anything. There's a lot of research on this on sound engineering forums. Get yourself some acoustic panels instead.

There exist acoustic sails you can install/ hang from the ceiling. so light comes through. You can use some molton fabric to make some kind of walls. Just put them on special sliders etc. like you put your curtains on. So you can move the fabric to every shooting position/ direction. If not possible to install just use tripods/ stands with crokos from the ...

Have you heard of Doscha Wool? http://www.archello.com/en/product/wool-insulation Works very well and is environmentally friendly as well! And not extremely expensive. Arnoud

Hm, interesting question! I'd probably keep roomtone and amb pretty much like normal, possibly with a little sweetening on something heavier for the mere feeling, but really put all power on the other sounds. Logically,everything we'd hear would be extremely trebely and thin, not like in pitched, but like in a really terrible EQ:ing. I for one would hate to ...

I would agree and think all sounds should definitely go bigger and lower as well. An air conditioner unit to us normal sized folks would probably seem like a huge wind turbine to mini people. I think the pitching is certainly a great way to start, but also look at mixing in and manipulating other "relative" sounds, like a pitched down jet engine or ...
