Santa Monica, CA (September 1, 2006)–To expand their technical capabilities and best service their growing clientele, Allied Post Audio is creating a state of the art, multi-room facility in the heart of Santa Monica’s new media district.
According to owner and engineer Woody Woodhall, “The facility is being designed from the ground up to yield spectacular acoustics. Our choice to work with Acoustic Designer Neil Shaw was one of the most important decisions we made when creating the new APA studio.” Neil Shaw is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and a member of IEEE, AES, SMPTE and INCE. His expertise has helped APA to not only achieve top quality acoustics and isolation, but also unique room presentations with one-of-a-kind, custom built wall treatments.
Ron Garrett of Alive Sound is supervising the layout and installation of the entire facility’s audio-visual wiring, machine room configuration and patchbays. The design/build principals for the project are Jim Stanton and Alan Arrivee of Stanton Construction of Chicago, IL. “Construction of sound rooms require special care with double walls and windows, alternating layers of drywall, floated platforms and specialty electrics, and well planned mechanical HVAC. We hired all the best people to build this dream. It’s been a labor of love but all the attention to detail is paying off. This place sounds amazing,” Woodhall said.
The new facility will feature several mix rooms, spacious recording booths, as well as edit bays, a kitchen, a lounge and an outdoor patio. “Clients want a place that is easy to get to, easy to work at and comfortable to spend time in. We are designing the new Allied Post Audio with all this in mind,” said Woodhall.
