We have just launched a new recording studio design service at www.recordingstudiodesign.co.uk for customers who wish to simply buy a pre-designed recording studio control or live room and build it themselves. We currently offer two different sizes. To find out more click on the photo on the photo.

Recording Studio Design can be seen as an extremely complex and drawn-out process. When you start the recording studio design process there are so many factors to take into account. Below is a typical list of items that need to be considered: –

  • Geographical location
  • Position within the building
  • Surrounding neighbourhood – residential or commercial
  • Noise pollution – main roads, train lines, underground lines
  • Council approval, change of use for practice spaces and late night access
  • Recording Studio use and the main function
  • Style of recording – Live or program
  • Control and live rooms sizes
  • Equipment specifications – analogue or digital
  • Control room acoustic response, surround sound mixing
  • Control room finishes and furniture
  • Control room soundproofing
  • Control room ventilation
  • Control room audio wiring
  • Live room size, live band or vocal and individual instrument
  • Live room acoustics
  • Live room finishes
  • Live room soundproofing
  • Live room ventilation
  • Electrics, star earth
  • Noisy equipment/plant locations, Mac’s and PC’s, Amplifiers, tubes, 2inch tape
  • Recording studio building regulations

With all of the above in mind, you can start to consider the recording studio design stage.
