Abstract The acoustics of a venue as well as the quality of the PA sound system
and medium are responsible for delivering quality sonic experience to the
audience. In order for good sound to be achieved, each part of the chain has
to be at its best. Starting from the music medium, through the signal path,
then translated into acoustical energy, the sound is being altered before it
reaches the human ear. It is important to take advantage of the possibilities
of today’s systems to record and reproduce sounds with a dynamic range
higher than ever before and keep it distortion less. In room acoustics, sound
decay is of great importance. Electronic music has a heavy low end content.
Low frequencies are favored by listeners and essential for a whole and natural
experience. The unnatural square layout of most of todays rooms as well
as the materials used in construction create acoustical problems. Standing
waves cause lack of definition in the low end, as high end reverberation
is being damped by conventional materials. Sound environments that are
closer to natural are the more preferred by people, they enhance the spatial
translation of the PA system.
