We Are In A 100 Year-Old Structure
So you have a recording studio in an old church. That seems soooo 1990s. How about in a garage?
Our studio has been integrated into a 100+ year-old garage. (Adds new meaning to the term garage band, don’t you think?) It’s a former service station/gas station with decades of use. The overhead service bays are still usable. The gas pump island it still in place out front. And you can stomp the floor over the old “oil change pit”.
The original beams are visible in the main shop that was built in 1915. High ceilings, heavy concrete floors, thick wooden beams that are as hard as iron. And, if you know anything about the problem with “standing waves” in a recording environment you should appreciate the fact that I doubt there are any walls in the recording areas that are plumb, level, even, straight, parallel, perpendicular or smooth. Just as we like them.

So where’s the “window”? You know, the view from the live room to the control room? Decided we didn’t need it. There are CCTV cameras in the live room (and the isolation room) that can be seen in the control room. If you really want to see the engineer we can put his smiling face on a 55″ LCD screen in the live room. Combine that visual with the talk-back system and you may ask yourself, “Why bother with a window?”
