Live Room

The live room consists of a main recording room approximately 26′ x 16′ with two isolation booths about 8′ x 8′ in size. The main room features oak floors and adjustable acoustics. Since we are essentially a one room facility, we wanted to be able to tailor the acoustics to suit the project. We have a number of moveable panels that are reflective on one side and absorptive on the other. This variability allows us to deaden the whole room, sections of it, or cordon off elements to minimize leakage. The live room also features bass and midband absorption and diffusion in the form of corner traps, hanging traps, slat resonators, membrane absorbers, and absorption panels. In simpler terms, this room was made for playing music. The isolation booths are both relatively dead acoustically, although one is more absorptive than the other. They are just off the live room and are accessed through large sliding glass doors, preserving important sight lines if a musician is in isolation. Typically, we use the booths to isolate speaker cabinets and quieter instruments, and there are tie lines for instrument and speaker lines between the booths and the live room. The live room can comfortably accommodate a large band. Our 1917 Steinway upright piano lives in the room and acts as a great baffle when not in use.
