Chicago, IL (December 20, 2007)–The Music Garage, a high-tech studio where artists can rehearse, record, upload, download and manage all aspects of their careers, recently received acoustical treatment from Auralex Acoustics in several of its rooms.
The Music Garage houses over 100 rehearsal rooms including its elite Pro Suite, reserved for established musicians, as well as three recording studios. The space caters to both upcoming and veteran artists as well as a wide range of musical genres. Many of the rooms at the Music Garage have Auralex’s 2-inch Studiofoam Wedges and LENRD Bass Traps in the corners.
Essentially, the Music Garage purchases Auralex’s products and passes them along to its clients to use in the studio at no extra charge. This allows each artist to customize their rented rehearsal/recording space. Several movable Auralex ProPanels are also onsite so the studio can cater to its customers’ distinctive sounds. As an added convenience, the Music Garage is a reseller of Auralex products, offering customers a way of ordering Auralex acoustical treatments onsite.
“We may have a rock band in one day and a folk band in the next–each requiring its own acoustical retrofitting,” says Jon Pope, co-founder of the Music Garage. “Through our relationship with Auralex, we are able to acoustically cater each room to meet the needs of our diverse client base. We are so pleased with the outcome and the positive client response, that we are currently looking to retrofit our New York location with Auralex products.”
The Music Garage’s Pro Suite is a private and segregated area of the facility for more established artists who are looking for complete isolation and luxury. The Pro Suite is divided into a tuned live room with adjoining control room, both treated with Auralex’s 4-inch Studiofoam diamond wedges, MegaLENRD Bass Traps, LENRD Bass Traps, Venus Bass Traps, T’Fusor Diffusors and pArtScience AudioTiles. The live room also features Auralex’s pArtScience SpaceCouplers, while the control room features diffusion panels on its back wall and absorption panels above the windows.
“At the Music Garage, we offer our artists the full-package,” Pope continues. “We also host a no-cost lecture every month, ranging from recording techniques and tips to the industry as a whole. This gives us an opportunity to recognize the great artistic minds that have come through the facility while educating the newcomers.”
