Designed by the acoustic firm Pilchner and Schoustal, this room is built with specifically angled surfaces eliminate standing waves. Double walls and rubber isolators under the floor mean this is a “room-within-a-room”. Exacting standards, but the payoff is that FRANK meets Dolby® specs for certification as a 5.1 Print Mastering Facility, as well as Dolby® E encoding and decoding for digital delivery.
Flexibility was also a factor in the design. Sound engineers have a clear line of sight to our recording studio, or a motorized screen can be lowered in front of the window so movie Producer/Directors can watch their film on our High Definition projection system. There is a raised desk for clients, as well as a couch at the back of the room for relaxing.
Specialized equipment includes a variety of mic preamps including API, Avalon and Telefunken, Urei LA4 compressors and an enviable selection of vintage mics including two Neumann U47′s.
