The wall wall that faced the variable acoutic panels was transformed in a hybrid surface using QRD diffusor of 1 khZ and high frequency absortion panels of 55 x 55 cm. on the other side, the wall that faced the double glass was covered with QRD 1 khz diffuser, and with some glass brick patches to allow the space to be naturally lighted.

The ceiling of the recording studio has a convex shape in the middle, two 6° angle side plane reflector and a height of 3 m from the finished wooden floor.

The control room mixed a LEDE with a FRZ design, using drywall in ther corners to give the room a the right shape and to provide wide low frequency absortion.

In the corner i installed a wide band low frequency absorption with glasswool that worked from 200 Hz and above, with the help of a acoustic measurment we founded the modal frequencies and designed a 60 Hz double helmhlotz resonator of 18 mm MDF.
