What is the geography of your work? Can you design a recording studio in Perm?

In terms of geography we do not have any restrictions. Here we are guided only by common sense. Our specialists are living in Ukraine, so we work mainly in Central Europe and the European part of the former SU, although there are requests from the Far East, Kazakhstan and Western Europe. When it comes to designing sound systems - no problem. But the construction of recording studios assumed the repeated visits of our specialists, so at large distances transportation costs may be disproportion...

What size of rooms are most suitable for control room?

If we are talking about a stereo control room, the most optimal are the premises from 30 to 50 square meters. Smaller rooms are more difficult to design and harder to achieve a desired result, especially in controlling of low frequencies. In areas larger than 50 square meters we can meet up with other problems. In any case - no matter how big the room is - the distance from the listening position to the monitors can not be more than five meters. Ceiling height in the future control room can n...

Why do you refuse to build on a turnkey basis? What are the causes?

Because it is disadvantageous especially for you! I'll try to explain in order. Construction on a turnkey basis means that the project engineer, engineer for switching, electrical engineer, fitter, foreman, supplier and 4-6 builders are involved in construction of your studio - that is about 11-13 people. And if we add more experts on ventilation/air conditioning, security alarm, fire treatment, etc., the number could grow to 15-20 people. If the studio is built far off, all of them need some...

How to choose a designer to build the studio?

Acoustic design is an activity which is at the intersection of science and creativity, and more precisely creativity. It is always a work of authorship, and no company can do so, as some acoustic desigber can do . Take a look at our portfolio and note that each built our studio has given the project's author, who is personally responsible for its implementation. And it is correct. Compare, for example, the sound of violins made by a talented craftsman (Stradivarius, for example) with the sound o...

Why do you prefer to use in your studios Reflexion Arts monitors?

First, in my opinion, because it is the best monitors in the world not only in sound, but also on their performance characteristics. Of course, one could argue that the assessment of monitors is more subjective category . Then I will not argue. But there are objective factors which can not argue. For example, somebody might prefer cameras Kodak, and someone else, for example, Nikon. This is a matter of taste. However, any camera with 17 megapixels resolution is always better than camera with 2 m...
