ABSTRACT
This article discusses various issues related to diffusion in sound recording studios. Diffusion--for audio purposes--is the control of reflection's phase relationships in a recording studio or performance venue. There are several ways to achieve diffusion in the studio. One is to alternately place acoustically absorbent materials with reflective ones. This is frequently recommended when replacing/upgrading acoustic foam panels. A more complex approach is to use mathematical sequence diffusers that are designed so that each elevation of the unit--its wells--are precise mathematical ratios to one another. This gives excellent diffusion and is extremely effective in controlling reflections.
