Love that wood look on the walls. The form and shape of the control room is nice. But where is the acoustic treatment?

Just curious. Thanks for the post.

From what I've seen from most 90s (and perhaps a bit more recent) purpose-built control rooms they tend to have a "live but angled" front half of the room and the back is where the majority of absorption takes place. It also looks like the ceiling plays a part in the process in this case.

That's pretty much it Paul
the half of the ceiling which is black is all absorption, as it the entire back wall (you can see that material covering to the right of the door to the machine room)

40 Channel Trident MTA 924 pimped with a discrete bucket summing "Classic API" 2buss and Optifile Tetra automation.

Just finished and installed this summer project a few days ago, totally loving the marriage of the Trident musical eq, and the punchy API 2buss from a large format console, in a small footprint.










Previous consoles owned by myself:

EMI 8100 8 channel sidecar (09-010) (the funky thing)

Audix Mxt 1200 24 channels (06-010) (the widescreen board)

(03-06) ITB/Summing

SSL 4040 E series with recall (98-03) (my Big Boys board)

Soundtracs Megas 40 channel (96-98) (my first proper board)
