Sony Studios, New York, New York, USA
Sony Recording Studio is a renovation of a former
rehearsal room at Sony Music Studios. The famed 54th Street recording
and mastering facility provides state-of-the-art technologies and
a wide variety of services for the music industry. The conversion
from a rehearsal room also included the addition of a video editing
room, a lounge, and an entrance vestibule. The recording control
room is located across the corridor from the new recording studio,
with visual contact between the studio and control room made via
video. The project was completed in 1999.
Artec Consultants Inc worked on insuring an ideal
acoustical environment for the recording space. The new studio does
not allow an excessive amount of noise to pass into the new video
editing room. Similarly, noise from the video editing room and its
equipment does not pass into the recording studio. A concrete block
wall and isolated floor were chosen to isolate these spaces.
Artec provided Design and Planning services covering
Acoustics Design and Background Noise
and Vibration Control consulting for this project.
