How much does a recording studio cost?

Up until now such a studio was a major undertaking to deliver. Acoustic consultants, architects, building contractors, project managers etc. Not to mention the associated costs. The outcome is likely to be a good one, but life is too short for such a longwinded and expensive process. 

Smart Studio roll all those processes into one, at a fixed cost. 

 

 

The acousitcs

High Sound Insulation

Sound insulation is duly a concern for many embarking on the journey of building a professional studio. We have a DnTw room to room of 60. Here is a test conducted recently measure sound breakout room to hallway.

This test result was for a client recording heavy metal with lots of drums in a residential area in the inner city of Dublin. The customer loved the results.

Excellent Room Acoustics

 

Our rooms achieve a really flat response across the frequency spectrum. Our IOA qualified acousticians use advanced computer modelling to map room designs which are printed by our CNC router and installed by Smart Studio builders to achieve absolute consistency room to room, studio to studio.

Our rooms absorb low frequencies at the optimum level, so you’ll never have to put some ugly foam in the corner of the room to “trap” bass.  The room, as standard, gives you a space in which you can really hear your speakers and helps you avoid the dreaded “threshold shift”.

 While there are various suppliers who will sell you so called acoustic treatment panels (which do have a place in the audio world) they can never be considered a substitute for a professionally designed and installed recording studio.
