The studio was designed and constructed carefully over several years and, as with most studios, is continually undergoing improvements.
Every wall in the studio is constructed of two interior walls with 4 inch airspace inbetwen, making each one 13″ thick. The “inner walls” were designed so that one never touches the other. Anytime support pieces are used, they are shielded with a thick, sound rated rubber treatment to keep any transmission of noise from occurring. Each wall is insulated with very dense fiberglass insulation, 1 layer of 1/2” QuietBrace sound-deadening structural sheathing topped by another layer of 5/8″ gypsum board which are placed together with an acoustical sealant applied in necessary areas. To top it off – each wall is never parallel at any angle with the adjacent wall. These well designed 13″ studio walls payoff two fold when recording:
- The tracking rooms have a very low noise floor, ensuring that you capture the purest of recordings.
- You will hear exactly what you are recording in the control room – not the bleed over from the sound source in the tracking room.
Great quality recordings start with the basics. That’s why we used high-quality Mogami cabling with Neutrik connectors throughout the studio to ensure we capture every detail of your performance in the studio. Here are a few reasons we chose Mogami:
(from their website) “There’s a reason why Mogami is called “The Cable of the Pros.” Virtually every major recording facility is wired with Mogami, which means that just about any music you listen to has passed through Mogami somewhere in the recording chain—from Fleetwood Mac to Foo Fighters, from Prince to Pearl Jam, and countless others. Why do so many discriminating artists and studios choose Mogami over other cable brands? It’s simple. Mogami is unmatched for accuracy, extremely low noise, ease of installation, flexibility, and superior quality.” click here to learn more…
A climate controlled A/C was designed with extra isolation as well as internal acoustic baffles. These precautions allow for a comfortable recording environment while keeping the noise floor controlled for optimum recordings.
