Rome recently had its fair share of news, what with the appointment of a new Pope and the launch of a new recording studio. Synchronia Studio (, which opened in March 2005, used the SAE (Stealth Acoustic Environment) technique to obtain the lowest energetic acoustic return from the structural perimeter of the control room. Thus, the work space is free from sonorous reflections, rendering it precise in the balance of frequencies around the sound engineer's listening point while being hunkered down at the MCI JH636 console.

Monitoring is via Quested VH3208 (mains), Yamaha NS10M (near-fields) and Auratone 5C (near-fields); Quested AP500 and Hafler P3000 provide amplification. The room also sports a Mac G4 running Pro Tools, Peak, Logic and plugs from Waves, Bomb Factory and others. Recording can be done to an Alesis HD 24-track or Panasonic SV-3800.
