The Recording Studio.

The recording room of Higain studio, with a 180m3 volume was designed to be a multipurpose space where we can record from voices to a whole band live album. The room has several reflectors and MLS diffusers strategically placed together with the diffuser ceiling, allow to maximize energy decay of a diffuse and very natural. This results in a lively and controlled sound that can add depth in any recording. In the recording room of HiGain studies also we found a series of modules that allow mobile absorbent recording instruments requiring a more neutral space, which adds performance and versatility to the recording environment. All with natural light from its side windows.

The sound control, also has two large natural light inlets, which provide it with light throughout the day giving a warm atmosphere at the time of recording and working in the later stages of the production recording. Using an angled viewfinder plant, from the point of mixture has an almost complete view of the recording room. In the back of control we found a high frequency QRD diffuser nested within another QRD medium frequency, obtaining a working range starting above 200Hz. The control room also features a sound system 2.1 through boxes Subwoofer GENELEC 1031 with 7070, which allows a very linear frequency response across the spectrum.

The control room of the recording studio Higain designed is based on the concept LEDE (Live End Dead End), which is based on the ability of our ear to discriminate or separate sounds with a temporary separation (between 20 and 30ms) with which properly designing the arrival of the wavefront and the first reflections of the room, you can get a very nice flat in the listening response (measured + 2dB).
