Shock City

Shock City ST. LOUIS, MO.

Shock City serves as the home base for production company Shock City Music Works, operated by musician/co-owners Doug Firley and Chris Loesch. Kurt Kerns of the Lawrence Group (St. Louis) designed the studio around an SSL 6060 G/G+ console, Pro Tools 8 and Augspurger main monitors. The wall of windows in the live room is broken into small panes that serve as diffusers, all angled for varying pitches and depths. Custom tunable panels attached below the window wall can be removed from the wall and used as acoustic scrims. A 22×23-foot control room includes RPG Omniffusers and Golterman & Sabo acoustic panels.

Studio F features dark, rough-hewn wood flooring, exposed wood walls and a stone “fireplace” (with a 65-inch Sharp flat-screen display in place of a hearth) designed to create a log-cabin feel.

Clatter & Din

The Russ Berger Design Group (Addison, Texas) designed several rooms for this 6,000-square-foot music/audio/post-production facility. Two 5.1 surround recording/monitoring studios connect to a large live room and two iso booths. These studios were relocated to the top floor of a century-old brick building. Installed improvements include floating floors and space for wire management. SpaceCouplers by pArtScience provide overhead diffusion in the control room, which features Pro Tools 8, Digidesign C24s and Genelec 1031/7070 monitors.

Busy recording/mixing/mastering engineer Kevin Nettleingham has moved his studio operations into a new ground-up facility designed by Chris Pelonis of Pelonis Sound and Acoustics (Santa Barbara, Calif.). The live room features a large, exposed-brick wall diffuser with 18-foot modified cathedral ceiling; there's also a vocal booth just off of the control room. The control room is equipped with Pro Tools HD3, extensive Crane Song gear, Digidesign D-Command and Pelonis' Signature Series PSS110 monitoring with PSS212 subwoofer.

Vanquish

Situated just outside Fort Lauderdale, Vanquish was designed by Horacio Malvicino of the Malvicino Design Group (New York City) with assistance from the Blank Design Group (San Francisco, CA) to accommodate hip-hop, R&B, jazz, alternative and remix projects. Variable acoustics allow for a 0.6 to 1.2-second reverb time; treatments include ceiling clouds with RPG Flutter-Free moldings. The studio is equipped with an SSL Duality 48-input console, ADAM S-5VA Mk2 main monitors, an Apogee Symphony system and Pro Tools HD3.
