Buenos Aires, Argentina (March 15, 2011)--Walters-Storyk Design Group in Buenos Aires has created a high-end home studio for the Roma & Romma Records label.
Constructing the studio as an annex to the family home required particular attention to acoustic isolation. "Our clients wanted the freedom play and record any time of the day or night without disturbing their family," explains WSDG-LA partner Sergio Molho. "They retained us for the design-through-construction, and complete turnkey systems integration of a professional studio with acoustically perfect live and control rooms."
"WSDG has created studios for such artists as Fito Paez, Alicia Keys, Evette Sangallo, and Jay-Z, we knew they would develop an ideal facility for us," said studio principal Nicholas Romero. "While we do not plan to make our studio available for outside productions, we wanted to insure the highest quality acoustic and technological support."
Initial client meetings aided WSDG LA interior designer, Silvia Molho in establishing a home-like creative environment. "Our goal was to personalize the control and live rooms to inspire their creativity," she says. "We selected contemporary shapes for the white and grey, multi-textured, fabric-covered acoustic/aesthetic wall and ceiling panels. The control room's grey color palette was chosen to compliment the technology and custom furniture. Vertical and horizontal lines in both spaces are highlighted by special lighting fixtures, and we treated the window connecting both rooms with carefully placed shapes and lighting elements to fully unify the studio."
Roma and Romma Records features an Avid D-Command|24 console; Pro Tools|HD running on an Apple Mac Pro; Adam S5VA monitors; outboard equipment including API 212, Avalon VT737, Millenia HV3D, Neve 1073, Empirical Labs Distressor and Manley VoxBox; and Hearback and Sennheiser HD-25 monitoring.
