You can really see how the whole studio lays out now. The live room is nice and big. The control room is as well. The iso-booths are roomy and will be very functional for all types of recording. Several people have said the shape of the control room looks like the Starship Enterprise. There's about 1,300 feet of Cat6 wire in the walls for headphone monitoring, video and midi. (See pic of my tech wiring guys Thom Canova and Daniel) There's Gepco 2,4,12 pair audio wire everywhere so that wherever you want to plug in and rock - it will be easy and quick. Gepco wire is physically identical to a high quality and famous brand of wire from the far east that begins with the letter M. :-) All the electrical has also been run in the walls including the special star ground outlets to keep away nasty hum and buzzing in the audio chain. I've had lots of people come by and given me some terrific feedback about the potential for Sound Temple Studios in the Asheville and Western North Carolina music and audio post scene. It seems that this studio will fill a wonderful niche in terms of it's acoustics, size, equipment, and costs to record here.
Speaking of equipment - I am now the very proud owner of an SSL Matrix mixer. Sound Temple Studios will be the first studio in the area with a SSL console. Mixing through an SSL console gives your recording that sound that thousands of hit records have. Lots of musicians in town are very excited about this. Also, I have just purchased some amazing soffit mount main monitors. THe Dynaudio M3As are amazing. This will be one of the most accurate sets of monitors to mix on in the area. Combine this with the near flat response control room down to 2ohz (designed by Wes Lachot) and producers, engineers, artists and bands will have a place to get some amazing mixes. There's also some great new preamps and a microphone or 2 coming before completion.
That's all for now.
Blessings to all
