Pete Peloquin and Todd Harris, the owners of Boston Skyline Studios, hired Professional Audio Design (PAD) to design their new facility.

“We had a dream to build a world-class studio in the Boston area and the folks at Professional Audio Design helped us put it all together,” said Peloquin. “We knew we needed an SSL board and top-shelf recording, editing and outboard rack equipment, but wanting and actualizing are two different things, and that is where PAD came in. They literally took our dream and helped to create a high-end professional environment to serve the entire music industry. We couldn’t be happier with the results.”

The owners' top priority was to create a comfortable space to work on projects that range from solo piano to a full-blown band. While PAD handled the system integration, design and wiring installation, Munro Acoustics was recommended by PAD to develop the control room layout and acoustics treatments.

“Choosing Munro Acoustics was a brilliant stroke by PAD,” said Harris. “Munro fulfilled our primary objective of creating the best room in New England. The studio room has wonderful acoustics that enhance the performance value of our clients and is set to handle nearly any size job. The control room is highly accurate in its sound reproduction, allowing engineers to capture and shape the sound they want without coloration.”

Studio A consists of a large recording room with two isolation booths attached (a third is under construction) and the control room. This room features a SSL 4064 G+ console, Dynaudio M4+ monitors, a Studer 2-inch analog tape machine, Neve preamps and equalization equipment, and a Pro Tools|HD recording/editing system. Studio A was completely rebuilt for this upgrade.

“I had experience working with PAD while teaching audio and media, and was impressed with their capabilities, so choosing PAD to design and equip Boston Skyline Studios was a ‘no brainer,'" explained Peloquin. “PAD delivers high-quality professional service from the start and throughout the entire design, construction and start-up process. But perhaps most importantly, PAD continues to service and support Boston Skyline Studios as it begins its commercial operation. The live room is great, the control room is great, but the job isn’t finished with PAD. They continue to back up all of the systems with the professional support and expertise required by a world-class, commercial recording studio."

“People and groups are coming to look over the facility and are awestruck by what we've created,” said Harris. “Our hats are off to PAD for their great work.”
