Now that we've covered the basics of soundproofing, this time were going to talk about what sound treatment is and why you need it if you want recordings in your home studio to sound professional. Sound treatment differs from soundproofing because its goal is to tailor the acoustics of the space, not stop sound transmission from outside or within. The two reasons this is important are particularly critical and apparent in recording and mixing. The first reason is that while mixing, if you can't differentiate what's coming from your monitors and what's an anomaly within the room, it's next to impossible to achieve an accurate mix that will translate to other systems, which is pretty much the entire goal of the mixing process. The other reason is to help eliminate sound characteristics and coloration captured on a recording.
