What’s the purpose of a diffuser? The “random” nature of a diffuser allows sound to reflect in different ways, essentially eliminating audible reflections that can cause listening inconsistencies in your recording space. These are generally found on the back wall of a control room, or in the case of Blackbird studios here in Nashville, all over! This unique room is essentially a giant diffuser – and the result is stunning. There are no unwanted reflections, but it is not the traditional “dead” sound that control rooms and mixing rooms can often have.
