Big Sky Audio

Before I moved to Oregon in 1995 I helped build a studio in Springfield, Pennsylvania named “Big Sky Audio.”

A few weeks ago ago Drew Raison sent me some pictures of the place that would be good to share.

There's some pretty big main speakers behind those screens on either side of the window. The glass in that window was quite thick, half inch on one side and three quarter on the other. The thick glass laid at angles to each other helped deaden the sound between the control room and the studio.

That little bench/step thing on the side also houses a cable run. There are a lot of balanced lines to run in a big studio.

These two shots on either side of the airlock don't show how thick and heavy the door is. It's hung on piano hinges and has layers of sheet rock and other heavy material to reduce its ability to transmit sound.

The studio is spacious and has several isolated rooms, this shot was from the door of one of the rooms into the main studio. You can see the other side of the glass in the control room here, too.

These shots bring back memories of crawling through the ceiling, pulling cable and laying insulation.
