Is there a general rule on how to handle windows? I have a double window in the room...
Well the mattress was just an example, of things to use.
What i meant was, that you should listen to the room, find out of itīs weakness. Some room are boomy, some have this hard sound when you clap your hands, some have a very long decay, but it could be a nice sounding one.
And then decide if the room sound is far off of what you wanīt for your recording. And as suggested, a sofa is a nice sounding furniture, to soften up things a bit.
The link suggested before is really cool. And what i meant was more or less, that you need to find out what you like for different purposes, and only the ears can tell, so they need to experiment and listen. I really like listening to rooms, and think of what a certain room would be cool for. All rooms has a vibe.
Light travels faster than sound. Thatīs why some people appear bright until you hear them speak
