At-a-Glance: Private recording/mixing/mastering space for engineer John Rodd incorporates numerous windows to give an airy feel. "I spend a lot of time in dark recording studios," says Rodd, "so when I was able to build my own studio from the ground up, I made sure it had a lot of natural diffuse sunlight." The studio has hidden Helmholtz resonators, membrane-faced bass traps and effective soundproofing throughout. The ceiling joists, hidden diffusors and high-performance/full-spectrum acoustic absorption all work to create effective diffusion and absorption.
