Just wanted to share various sources around on the net on the subject of acoustics and digital room equalization / correction (Digital Room-EQ ) that I have run into so far....
• I am sure I touched only a small percentage of what is around, so please feel free to comment & add as you see fit.
• I have not checked, read, verified or tested (let alone used) everything. Don’t shoot the messenger.
• I have no interest other than share info...
