LEDE room

LEDE room

[′lē‚dē ‚rüm]
(engineering acoustics)
A control room in a sound-recording studio in which the rear wall is made reflective or diffusive, while the dead or sound-absorbent treatment is applied at the frontal sidewalls near the loudspeaker to prevent lateral reflections from mixing with direct signals from the loudspeaker. Derived from live-end-dead-end room.

Note that here we are not necessarily talking of a studio-style, fully Live-End/Dead-End arrangement (LEDE room), but rather dealing with an environment with at least a nominal amount of absorbing material on the front wall, as well as the walls adjacent to and towards the outer flanks of the speaker systems.
