SEATTLE, November 30, 2021 – Converting newly emptied office space into podcast studios poses noise issues that had not yet been realized before hybrid offices began. Experts recommend that you consider location, nearby noise sources, and ways to absorb sound to make a studio effective.

During the 181st Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America, which will be held from November 29 to December 31. 3 at the Hyatt Regency Seattle, Indi Savitala, from the CSDA Design Group, will discuss how to optimize existing spaces for use as podcast recording studios. The talk, “Converting an Empty Office into a Podcast Studio“, will take place on Tuesday, November 30 at 1:25 p.m. in the eastern United States.

Thanks to hybrid work models, offices are less busy and noisy, which means recording spaces can be used more often, and newly empty private offices can become podcast studios.

But existing spaces present multiple acoustic challenges – single-pane windows, nearby noise sources, and limited available space, to name a few. Desks with AV components with frequent audio playback or speakerphone use also hamper recording.

To help you, Savitala and its team offer criteria and recommendations for optimizing check-in spaces.

“Since the offices are partially occupied, people have become more sensitive to noise,” said Savitala. “HVAC and sound masking noises that were previously considered acceptable are now considered ‘loud’ and customers are asking for lower background noise levels.”

According to their criteria, the focus should be on potential sources of noise. Converting an indoor office can be beneficial if it is away from open spaces and surrounding offices are not often used. Field offices may have less adjacent noise nuisance but may be exposed to traffic noise.

“Adding minimal absorption treatments will make a huge difference to the record,” said Savitala. “Choosing the right podcast-compatible microphones and pop filters can make a huge difference and doesn’t have to be expensive or high-end products. “

The team recommends considering the visual component of recording studios.

“It’s common for podcast shows to have an accompanying video for social media posts,” Savitala said. “Therefore, it is important to provide aesthetically pleasing room finish treatment options. “
