We’ve all been in studios where the owner spent a ton of money on the speakers yet it still doesn’t sound that good. That’s because they’ve neglected to treat the room, and as a result, aren’t hearing what’s accurately going on. I’ve written a lot about this in the past (including a book with Dennis Moody called the Studio Builder’s Handbook) and developed a conference presentation and a lynda.com room acoustics course that show that it doesn’t take much money to improve the sound of your room a great deal.
That said, sometimes it’s difficult to visualize exactly what’s going on when sound interacts with the hard and soft surfaces around us. Here’s a video from my friend John Calder that provides an excellent representation of how sound behaves, and how to tame it.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
