MG Sound

MG Sound

MG Sound, Vienna, Austria

This studio complex designed by Andy Munro and Chris Walls of Munro Acoustics Ltd. (munro.co.uk) comprises three main studios, several live rooms, editing facilities and a mastering room, as well as reception and office areas. Architect Roland Gasperel designed the interiors and provided project management. The acoustic design was based on a fully modular concept, with proprietary modeling and design programs used to produce custom bass absorbers and diffusers. Spread out over three floors of a former bank in the heart of Vienna’s old city, the studios opened in several phases throughout 2012 and 2013. Rooms are equipped with SSL 9000 consoles, Pro Tools systems and Studer A800 tape machines, and monitoring is by Dynaudio Acoustics, Genelec and ATC.

Watch a video in which Andy Munro speaks with Mr. Bonzai about the new MG-Sound in Vienna, Austria.

The Vault Mastering Studio, Phoenix, Arizona

Engineer/studio owner Nathan James, who has mastered recordings for The Fray, Louis C.K. and others, has moved his business from Manhattan back to his hometown, Phoenix. James’ new 300-square-foot facility, designed by Walters Storyk Design Group (wsdg.com), went online in February. Acoustical features include a front wall treatment comprising three overlapping, curved, fabric-wrapped absorptive panels, and a corresponding ceiling cloud and rear-wall panel. WSDG also devised a hinged, 6-foot-wide, absorptive acoustic window treatment built with Clearsorber Deamp perforated transparent panels. James brought his full NYC equipment setup to the new Vault: custom DM console, Duntech Sovereign/Cello amp monitoring, and processing from Lavry, Prism, Sontec and Manley.

Wes Lachot (weslachot.com) designed this facility to be used for owner/engineer Marc Goodman’s music tracking and mixing projects. The studio was completed in December 2012 and was built by Brett Acoustics, with wiring by Canova Audio. The control room features a sidewall treatment that helps to extend a wide reflection-free zone to the back of the room. Tracking room treatments include variable-depth absorptive and diffusive modules. The control room features a 48-channel API 1608 console, Dynaudio M3A main monitors powered by Bryston amps, Pro Tools 10 and two Studer A820 tape machines. Also available are processing options from Neve, Pultec, ADL, Gates, RCA, Bricasti, Lexicon, Eventide and more; there is also an EMT 140 plate reverb and a Yamaha C3 grand.

Purpose-built with live tracking in mind, this 1,100-square-foot home addition was designed by Chris Pelonis of Pelonis Sound and Acoustics (pelonissound.com). The studio comprises a live room and two isolation booths with line-of-sight between each space and the control room; ergonomic workflow and lifestyle were important considerations, and Pelonis developed a design that provides isolation as well as accuracy and musicality. Rick Ruzzamenti of Sound Waves provided finish carpentry on the project. Key equipment includes Pelonis’ Model 42 monitors with 42LF subwoofer; mic pre’s from Neve, API, UA and Focusrite; and a variety of microphones from Neumann, AEA, Mojave, Shure, Audix and Heil Sound.
