DreamWorks Animation SKG, Glendale, California

Peter Grueneisen, FAIA, of nonzero\architecture and studio bau:ton (nonzeroarch.com) designed this TEC Award-winning recording studio and premix stage for DreamWorks Animation. The facility’s location in the basement of an office building posed spatial problems that the designer solved with a three-dimensional arrangement of single- and double-height spaces; space planning and isolation were key issues in the design. The 850-square-foot recording room with 18-foot ceilings includes suspended clouds that conceal air ducts and lighting, as well as function acoustically and aesthetically. The control room pictured is connected to the recording space via a large window and through a sound lock. An additional producer’s booth in the back of the room provides an extra quiet and private space. The extensive equipment list features Euphonix S5 Fusion digital mixing consoles/S5 MC systems, Pro Tools systems, Genelec 8040 main monitors and PMC surrounds.

Pilchner Schoustal International (pilchner-schoustal.com) designed this multistudio complex for the Université Laval. Four control rooms face onto a large tracking room that includes two fixed iso booths and a collapsible booth with moving wall assemblies. The control rooms employ controlled-reflection geometry to provide uniform response characteristics, while the live room features low-frequency trapping and specular absorbers for a smooth decay and even performance. Key equipment in this facility, which opened in April 2013, includes SSL 4000 G+ and Soundcraft 2400 consoles, Studer tape machines and Pro Tools systems, with a wide palette of processing options and microphones.

Easy Eye Sound, Nashville

The acoustics in Easy Eye Sound, the personal studio of Black Keys frontman and the Recording Academy’s reigning Producer of the Year, Dan Auerbach, were redesigned by Steven Durr (stevendurr.com) to be warm and natural-sounding, allowing for performances to be captured with little or no baffling. Excellent sight lines allow for good communication and flow during sessions. Constructed by Dave Mattingly of Sound Construction, Easy Eye Sound reopened in June 2012, retaining its previous equipment complement including a Spectra Sonics 1020 16-bus console, Scully 280A 16 track 2-inch and 8-track 1-inch recorders, Pro Tools HDX with Lynx converters, RADAR, and monitors by Equator Audio, Dynaudio and Altec.
