If it helps, there are a couple of tools you can use to measure room acoustics. REW https://www.roomeqwizard.com/ and Sonarworks reference https://www.sonarworks.com/reference. It's been quite a while since I used either of these tools however I do remember sonarworks' calibration test being the most thorough. The wizard makes things very simple also. It ...

I've had decent luck experimenting with making a "distant" sound with just processing: A bit of lowpass filter (not too aggressive, but obvious enough) to dull it, and leave other sounds in the mix more prominent. Reverb with a semi-long initial decay and dense reflections. The idea is to suggest that there was plenty of space between the sound and the ...

It is partly due to the voice being mixed differently, but also comes from how the voice is recorded - controlled conditions in the studio, using a large diaphragm condenser with the actor close-in. Recording like this gives more bass and nice crisp highs in the tone of the voice. If you compare that to the way dialog on set is recorded - with a boom, from a ...

You need a gated pulse so microphone records only the reflection. A single pulse can provide a frequency response curve with the proper software

Well, the problem you are trying to tackle is not one that has a clear solution. There are various research groups as well as companies' R&D departments that are trying to provide their solutions to your problem. The issue here is the "multidimensionality" of the problem at hand. You have time (one dimension), frequency (second dimension, ...

You may not be able to duplicate it exactly in your room but you can vastly improve your room experience and over time, as your budget allows, you can improve it. Since you say your music consumption comes in the form of digital files on your Iphone you need to start educating ...

Tim Prebble once undertook a massive "globalsourced" library dealing exclusively with room tones but don't believe it ever came to fruition. Perhaps he would be a resource? Otherwise I concur with @Stavrosound; you'll more than likely need to create your own to match what you're seeing on the screen.

You may have some luck with the Rabbit Ears Audio REA0013 set. There's a few good ones in there which you can layer, although I feel some are riddled with preamp hiss. I believe Soundeffects.ch has a roomtone set, although I'm not familiar with it. Likely to achieve the sound you want, it will involve layering different roomtone textures and EQing them to ...
