DIY Studio:
Part 4 - Freaky Angles

If you're working with a perfectly rectangular room, that's actually not so good, but in the event you do have obstacles to drywall around, go wild. Building angles (in corners especially) will deflect sound at the source and encourage it to stay inside the room.

I have a particularly neat contraption I built around the main line in for my water. The mudder I hired (okay... I couldn't do it *all* myself) called it the Voyageur Space Station (from Hell). Whatever... it works great because a peak juts out of the wall right where the bass drum is. This effectively deflects the sound and distributes it nicely throughout the room.
