Re: GSBN:Re:

Thanks for that Frank.
My clients will probably work out the various acoustics required for each
I was wondering what you did for the ceiling - did you use an absorbent
material or a hard material like plaster board?
Thanks once again

We helped Stuart Sullivan build a SB isolation room at his studio  here in
Austin, Wire Recording.  He has a large rented space and  orginally wanted
room (approximately  20ftx30ft) for a drum room but he  now uses it more
piano and organ.  He did not want us to plaster so we  put 2 layers of
drywall on the out side (still inside the building  envelope) and various
on the inside.  It has been ranked in the top  3 studios in town several
running and he said he would definately do straw  bale again.
We did another studio earlier this year for Jim Eno who is the drummer
the popular rock band Spoon.
The live room is exposed red adobe bricks, which we made with no artifical
or petroish ingredients, with contrasting white clay mortar. see pics
www.thangmaker.com   The control room, isolation rooms and upper level  of
the live
room are dry wall with earthen plaster.  Earth seems to score  big with
recording engineers and acousticians.  Jim has only been open  a few
months but is
getting great feedback...no pun intended.
