Tucson, AZ (November 3, 2011)—Allusion Studios head engineer Jim Pavett recently upgraded the acoustics of the facility with Auralex products.
Based in southern Arizona, Allusion Studios consists of a control room, a live/drum room, a vocal booth, separate bass, guitar and vocal iso rooms, and a lounge. The studio previously installed Auralex's Studiofoam products throughout the building and later decided to add some Auralex ELiTE ProPanels and additional diffusion by incorporating the company's Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series.
Pavett installed several Custom ELiTE ProPanels, and also used Auralex's Mineral Fiber Insulation, SonoFiber and installed additional SheetBlok to its existing doors to reduce sound transmission from room to room.
"We essentially wanted to revamp our entire studio, taking our sound to the next level in sonic clarity with our acoustical renovations, along with a full roster of new, state-of-the-art equipment," says Pavett. "We stripped the walls of our control room down to the drywall and brought it back to life with a range of Auralex products. We also completely renovated the live room and iso booths. Basically, we upgraded our entire building."
The studio renovation was filmed for a two-part educational DVD, "The Studio Edge: Pro Audio Recording Series." The first DVD delves into the physics of sound and overall studio concepts and the second DVD focuses on building a studio and acoustics, which involved all the renovations made at the studio. The DVD is expected to be released later this year.
Allusion Studios has had a variety of high-profile clients complete work on various acoustical projects at the studio, including promotional work, video production and album recording. Some clients include Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy), HBO, George Clooney and Barry Sparks (Yngwie Malmsteen, Dokken and Ted Nugent).
