Get access to the four Sound Studios at Sound Art Lab for top-of-the-world acoustic facilities for recording, mixing, podcasting and mastering!
The sound studios are interconnected with analogue, digital, Ethernet and BNC signal lines. High-speed wired and Wi-Fi internet is naturally available in all studios and the studios are equipped with a range of modern equipment including computer workstations.
The four studios are built to exacting standards including reverberation time, background noise and sound transmission between each studio. The studios are insulated from the rest of the building and from the outside using double walls, soundproof doors, and windows with soundproof glazing of the highest standard. This also has the advantage that daylight is available in the studios to give a healthy work environment. The studios also have heavy white drapes that can be pulled across in front of the windows so that incoming sunlight can be softened. These also remove the glass surface from the acoustics of the room should that be desired.
The walls of each studio are covered with wood and felt panels in an arrangement specifically designed for their acoustic properties. These products are from NORTO who are upcycling otherwise waste wood from the furniture industry. Each studio also includes ‘bass traps’ with acoustic damping behind wooden slats and black Molton cloth so that the very low-frequency reverberation time in each studio is controlled. The ceilings are suspended acoustic tiles with additional damping above the whole ceiling.
Acoustic Peter John Chapman from PC Sound & Acoustics has performed measurements, and provided data for and information on all of the sound studios. Measurements of absorption data is performed according to DS/ISO standards in a reverberation chamber.
