Houston, TX (August 3, 2011)–Houston’s Wire Road Studios has launched a new facility designed by Russ Berger Design Group (RBDG).
Wire Road Studios recently moved its operations from a smaller project-based studio to a brand new, 5,000-square-foot facility in the historic Heights district of Houston that boasts two recording studios, a video editing suite and a production studio.
Wire Road Studios, which made its debut in 2009, emerged from the collaborative efforts of accomplished musician and engineer James Kelley and his father, Byron. Wire Road offers a range of production services such as recording/tracking, editing, mixing, mastering, original music creation and video production.
“When we began asking who could design a first-class studio, RBDG came up a lot in our conversations,” James Kelley explains. “After meeting with their team, we knew RBDG would be our choice.” The RBDG staff created the facility’s key architectural and acoustical elements using Kelley’s vision as their compass.
“The studio offers an innovative mix of digital and analog technologies,” notes Russ Berger, RBDG’s design principal, “while delivering the highest sound quality possible in a creative, professional environment–suitable for any musical genre. Wire Road Studios fills a void for services that have long been absent in this part of Texas.”
Also key to the construction and technical completion of Wire Road’s facility were Jim Leder of Houston-based Leder Construction, and Roy and Dayna Howell of Austin, TX-based Ground Zero Services, which provided system wiring, technical and integration services.
Equipment highlights include a Euphonix S5 Fusion console; Shadow Hills, Brent Averil, DW Fearn, Retro Instruments, Manley, Daking, Weiss Engineering and SSL compressors and equalizers; and microphones from AEA, AKG, Blue, Bock, Brauner, Lawson, Neumann, Schoeps, sE, Sennheiser, and Shure. Monitors by ATC and Focal are housed in Studios A and B. Studio C uses Final Cut Pro platform enhanced by a Euphonix Artist Series control board.
