    Make your life in the studio easier and more enjoyable – Improve your Room Acoustics!

    Studio Acoustic Design mostly misunderstood as being a “black-art” only practiced by someone who is part architect and part witch-doctor, and who also charges a frightening sum for their services.  And as audio continues its migration from professionally designed and purpose built spaces that have cost a fortune to design and build, to spare bedrooms and basement spaces repurposed as control rooms and tracking spaces, we run into the situation where the room’s natural acoustics become something resembling “the bear that you’re going to end up having to wrestle with at some point or another“… there’s really no getting around the physics of sound.

    A synth players best friend?

    It might at first sound a little odd, but a synth players best friend can be the guitarist. How? Have you seen the average guitarist’s pedalboard?
