To accommodate the growing number of singer, songwriters and groups booking Saga Recording (East Vancouver), owner/operator Michael Nowak hired Russ Berger Design Group to design a space that fits between a large multiroom facility and a small project room. The space features a 22x13-foot control room (where most of the tracking and vocals are done, per Nowak’s recording preference), a 15x10-foot live tracking room and a foyer with glass-panel doors that is wired for use as an iso booth. The control room features Logic and Pro Tools, with monitoring by Event Electronics. Acoustically, custom-built broadband and low-frequency absorber panels in the control room double as hanger mounts for the studio’s large stringed-instrument collection, which also contributes additional diffusion. Auralex Space Couplers are employed to manage reflections from rear windows in the control room and as a cloud above the mix position.

Nowak is currently producing SharaLee Ward (JMD Records/INgrooves/Universal Music Group) for her debut CD. He has also been writing and recording in the new studio with singer/songwriters Cassandra Bangel, Vania Levans and Lindsay Kipp.
