Live-End Dead-End

‘Live-End Dead-End‘ is a room design technique used in studio control rooms. The front end of the room containing the monitors is made “dead” with soundproofing, which absorbs the reflections coming off of the “live” back-end of the room so as to not interfere with the engineer’s listening during a recording session.
